It's A Southern Thang Y'all!!


Nothing says "the south" to me more than peaches.  They are my favorite fruit( followed closely by watermelon.)

 I love to make peach cobbler...mmmm so delicious.

BUT, my favorite way to eat peaches is to slice them, sprinkle a little sugar on them, let them sit for a few minutes and then serve a heaping spoonful over a piece of pound cake.  This is the way both of my grandmothers served "the peach".

Peach orchards abound in my part of Georgia-Carolina.  My parents went to their favorite peach stand and purchased a basket full last week.  I was a happy gal when my daddy brought over a bag full. : )

I'm so glad to be back home!

Ha ha! I know what you mean about them peaches. MMMM-MMMM! We passed many a stand on the way up to VA today and yesterday (on our drive toward Maine). BTW, we had dinner out with Dawn M and family last night. Their new house is awesome.

I love the idea of your wonderful Daddy bringing you a bag of peaches. My Dad was into toting home donuts. What I wouldn't give to see those big green eyes twinkling over a box of those Dunkins just one more time! Savor the flavor of those peaches for me -- they're sweet in more ways than one. xoxo

Yummy! I love peaches too and I live in a huge stone fruit part of the country. I my home town used to be knows as the Home of the Peach. Now we're the Raisin Capital. I have got to go get some more. Do you get Martha Stewart Living? They have an article in the July issue about a farm not very farm from where I live where they grow the best organic peaches.

Chris, my dad would also bring home doughntuts for us. What a wonderful memory that is. He used to put them in the oven and when our oldest was 3 or 4 he would always find them there!
Ann, enjoy being home and making all kinds of memories with your parents and sister. Something to cherish for sure!

Hi Ann, how is the unpacking going? I myself have been a little MIA from the blogging world but am back. I just wanted to stop by and say thank you for your words of encouragement about the opening of the shop. I am having a good time. I finally posted the photos today. Thanks again.
