Summer Peaches

I went to Walmart this morning and bought 20 pounds of peaches for the wonderful price of 76 cents a pound! These peaches are wonderful, and the stones come away from the centers so easily! I decided these peaches were better than the ones I bought from Michigan last year, and would be great to freeze. So, my next project is peeling, slicing and freezing all my peaches.

We enjoyed this gorgeous plate of peaches with our afternoon tea along with some amazing new cookies we discovered (which also happen to be gluten free!). Made from just 3 ingredients, these cookies were so "moreish" we had to set ourselves a limit before eating the first one.

Chocolate Nutcakes

(seen in a book called "Picnics")

1 can sweetened condensed milk

4 squares unsweetened chocolate

1/2 pound toasted pecans, chopped

Put the sweetened condensed milk and chocolate squares in a saucepan and melt together over low heat. Mix in the toasted pecans. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 7-8 minutes until firm. We made 3 dozen cookies.

Idea for Dinner: Fluffy whole wheat pancakes with fresh peach slices, slathers of whipped cream, and a drizzle of pure maple syrup;
