Perfect Peaches

Bought a case of peaches yesterday because they looked sooo good with their reddish, orangy velvet skin and I was in peach heaven when I sniffed a ripe one! I so love summer, with it's abundance of fruits and vegetables!!!

The first thing I did was ask Hubs to make his famous peaches and cream. Well, you probably think that there's not much to it, but he was the first person to introduce this dessert to me, and I fell in love with this simple way of enjoying peaches. Actually, I just like to watch him slicing up the peach ever so thinly, plating it, pouring rich, heavy whipping cream all over it, and finally sprinkling it with some organic cane sugar and cinnamon. OK. So he doesn't cook much, and it's not often that a girl/lady/person gets served around here. I am just enjoying my little break at the kitchen table watching him prepare dessert for a change.Today, there were cloudy skies and rain, so I decided to crank up my oven for a little piece of fresh peach pie.I had all the ingredients and 2 pie crust pastry in the fridge.Sliced the peaches, mixed with lemon juice, quick cooking tapioca, spices and sugar. Top with some butter and another rolled out pie pastry, cutting vents on the top before putting into a hot oven.Let it cool to room temperature. Wait, must be patient (as I kept going to touch the hot pie plate - ouch!)And a slice of pie awaits!

Your husband cooks very well. Looks delicious. So, what other recipes has he hidden up his sleeves? :P

Do you know that the peach tree originated from China and through the silk road, it went to Persia and the west? So nice that your husband cut peaches for you.

Oh my! Oh my! This is so yummylicious! I love peaches and pies! You have both!!!! It is so difficult to get such great peaches in Singapore.

I developed another pain now. In my heart - yearning for those lovely peaches! ^-^
