The girls and I celebrated the summer solstice by trekking out to a nearby mountaintop to pick peaches in the insanely hot sun. How else do you celebrate the first official day of summer than with summer’s quintessential fruit? I tell you that was the fastest 30 lbs of fruit we’ve ever picked. We just wanted to get back into some A/C!!!
Even after much snacking, we were left with this:
So we made these:
Grilled peaches with fresh basil to top some grilled chicken.
Pocket – sized peach pies.
And peach cobbler. There are still pleeeenty of peaches left.
After dinner al fresco we made a fire to roast marshmallows and play word games.
I hope the longest day of the year found you all enjoying the sun with your loved ones.
