This past weekend, the hubby, kid, and I traveled to North Carolina to take in a race at Winston Salem's Bowman Gray Stadium. We are kind of hooked on that track! Anyway, on the way down, we pass some great produce markets that sell fresh, locally grown produce which I love! I always make hubby stop at one or two of the stands. It's almost become like a tradition whenever we head to NC! We picked up the best tasting German Johnson tomato! We made tomato and mayonnaise sandwiches on Sunday. Yummy!! We also grabbed some peaches. I love peaches and could just eat them all without fixing them in anything. But I do have a wonderful recipe that I am going to share with you that uses fresh peaches. I am making this one either tonight or tomorrow night, if I don't end up eating the rest of the peaches we got, that is!!
Cheese and Peaches Pie
3 oz. package vanilla pudding (not instant)
3/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
3 Tbsp. butter
1/2 cup milk
2 cups fresh sliced peaches
Combine above ingredients and beat for 2 minutes at medium speed. Pour into greased pie plate. Arrange sliced peaches on top of batter. Sprinkle a little sugar over the top.
1 pkg (8 oz.) cream cheese
1/2 cup sugar
3 Tbsp. milk
Beat these ingredients for 2 minutes and spoon to one inch of edge of batter. Mix 1 Tbsp. sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon together and sprinkle over cream cheese filling. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes. Refrigerate when cool.
Sounds yummy doesn't it?? Yeah, there's more than a few calories in this one, but it is well worth it. It tastes almost like a peach cheese cake.
I've been thinking about my case of the blahs that I talked about in my last post. I think the perfect thing to get me out of the doldrums is to host a fall themed giveaway. So I am working on putting a little something together and will have more details on this soon. So be sure to keep checking back.
When I logged on today, I realized I have 231 followers! How awesome is that?? I only started blogging back in December of last year, so that's a pretty good number for almost eight months. I didn't realize so many people liked my blog. I just ramble on most of the time and it's nice to know that so many people are interested in my crafts, recipes, tips, etc. Thank you all for being so loyal and for being such wonderful, supportive friends!
I want to share one more thing before I go. I participated in the Christmas in July swap held over on the Prim Pals Forum. I got my package today and it had some wonderful things in it! Here's a couple of pics:
I just realized that I never shared pics of the awesome giveaway I won from Karen over at The Barely There Primitive Bear. I will definitely do that on my next post. I had some pics downloaded but our computer got "sick" and I lost a bunch of my stuff. Unfortunately, those pics were one of the things I lost. So I will take some more tonight and share them with y'all next time. It was a wonderful giveaway and I am still enjoying all my goodies!
Until next time. . .
