Sometimes the simplest of food is the best. Last night while I worked my way through the produce department, I was taken aback by the aroma of fresh peaches. Yep, those delightful little orbs of deliciousness practically jumped in my cart. Well, I gently placed them in my cart. (beware of bruising peaches-they’re delicate) They would have been pretty delicious on their own, but….I couldn’t stop thinking about my freshman year in college, when all I would eat for lunch in the cafeteria was the canned peaches in syrup with cottage cheese. It has been forever and a day since I’ve had the combo. Of course, peaches in syrup are a thing of the past, too. My rear end can’t balance things like that with my wine consumption. 🙂 So last night after dinner, I cut those fresh peaches up and topped them with low fat cottage cheese, fresh, cracked pepper, a drizzle of local honey and a little mint from my garden. It’s a great summer dessert. It’s healthy, light and easy. So that’s what you can do with your ripe peaches and local honey. Enjoy!
