The peaches in our part of the country are so sweet this season. I waited for the box of peaches that I purchased recently, to ripen for a few days my garage. When they were nice and ripe...
... I made peach freezer jelly and peach puree' and put it in the freezer.
I like the little jars with the plastic lids. I found them in boxes of 8, on the clearance shelves of the local Marshall's store. I think they will make some pretty little gifts this winter.
Peach shortcake is one of my favorite seasonal desserts. Since I am cutting back in desserts, but still wanted to eat lots of fresh peaches, I decided to make my own low calorie version.
I piled some fresh peach slices in a glass bowl. I whipped up some sugar-free instant vanilla pudding, adding 2 1/8 cups of cold skim milk. It made the consistency of a vanilla sauce that I drizzled lightly over the peaches.
I crushed a pack of these Lorna Doone 100 calorie packs of cookies and sprinkled some of them over the top(to try to fool myself into thinking it was shortcake:)
I added a small dollop of lt. Cool Whip.
Really, it tasted delicious to me...not as delicious as my shortcake, but it worked for me.
Peaches and summer flowers make me smile today.
Two pictures captured by my uncle. I think they are beautiful, so I shared them with you, hoping it will add some joy to your day.
Thank you so much for stopping by today.
