I recently felt like God had the thumb-screws on me, until I compared notes with some dear friends. Hello…God…why all the trials for such great folk? Oh that’s a much longer, philosophical discussion. I send my love to a few dear ones, you know who you are, and I pray for improvement. In the meantime, let’s have some fun and some good food; though Dad is not his best, he asked for peach pie. Here is the simplest one you can make:
In the grocery store you will find frozen puff pastry sheets; this brand is Pepperidge Farms; set one sheet out to defrost~
When pliable, unfold it; you can roll it a little at this stage but I don’t bother~
Pick four peaches from your local market, organic if possible, like these from Rieger Farms~
Slice the peaches onto the open pastry~
fold up the edges, as little or as much as you want, and dust with a handful of sugar~
Bake at 425 until brown~
meanwhile today, I went to Rancho Santa Fe and then back home, the roses from Laura’s visit were a little droopy~
though the entire bucket of roses cost me $20, I am getting extra miles….the petals have not browned….
so I have picked them and spread them out to dry in the sun~
where they are making wonderful rose potpourri and will mix nicely with lavender in the candle hurricanes….
I am going to have the summer party of parties in mid August. Plans are underway and otherwise I would be completely depressed….I spent the entire last week with Dad’s Dr. visits and parents. The party will be a welcome distraction…oh for now back to parents and tomorrow a few orders. Soldier on….
