Peach Pie Monday

Last week when we went again to the farm stand for more corn, I also picked up some peaches. I was hoping to bite into one and have the juice run down my arm and dribble off my chin like it did in the "good old days." Back then my dad would bring home bushels-full of them from the farms for canning and jam making. I don't do that anymore like Mom and Grandma in the past, but I did learn how, and put up my own for many years.

But! I changed my mind. I decided I had just enough peaches for a pie, and I thought correctly. Another trip is in order, now for more. I want to feel the dribble.

  1. Oh boy, you have me drooling!! It looks so very delicious. And aren't you ambitious? You go girl. I do hope you get back and get more to eat and let it dribble down your chin. I can relate!!!

  2. Oh man you're killing me! See! I'm drooling!

  3. YUM! Two weeks ago I was lucky enough to pass by a truck selling peaches on the side of the road. It's been years since I've had a delicious, sweet peach. It is hands down my favorite fruit. Those roadside peaches were amazing! I went back down that road last week and he wasn't there. It's impossible to find ripe ones in the stores.

    Your peach pie recipe looks awesome. Gee, I wish you lived nearby cause I'd ask you to save me a slice. :)

  4. I'm saving that recipe. It looks delicious!
