I have had some quiet time here at home recently and I put it to good use by completing two baby bibs for Great Niece, Ella, who should be arriving any day now.
I told you all that I have been walking here in my home and looking at You Tube. Well thanks to another cross stitch addict, I found Floss Tube. I have really enjoyed seeing other stitchers showcasing a project they are working on. Some will share how they store their fabric and flosses. So if you enjoy that sort of thing, check out Floss Tube. I am also addicted to Mrs Erica and Samathome518. Really it is much better than watching tv these days. Though Marvin and I are enjoying the last season of the Inspector Lewis mysteries on PBS. We have watched Inspector Lewis since he was Morse's sidekick. I also found a new mystery on PBS called Widower. The first episode was aired this week and I look forward to seeing how this one ends too!
My friend, Susan, took a trip to visit family in North Carolina and I helped cat sit while she was gone. So she brought me these as a thank you.
Here is my easy peasy peach cobbler recipe.
Preheat oven to 400.
Melt one stick of butter and place in 13 by nine dish.
Peel your peaches and use 4 cups of sliced fresh peaches. I probably had a bit more than 4 cups.
In a small bowl, mix 1 cup whole milk, 1 cup self rising flour and 1 cup sugar. I added 1 1/4 cup since these were fresh peaches. Add 1/2 tsp almond flavoring. Mix well and pour over the butter. Do Not Stir the batter with the butter!! Add peaches to the top of the batter and bake at 400 for 45 minutes or until brown. I check mine at the 30 minute mark. I recently read that peaches and almonds are from the same family. I have always used almond flavoring to my peach ice cream as it boosts the peach flavor. I did it with this cobbler and you cannot taste the almond, just the lovely peaches.
Welcome back to blogging, Elizabeth at Hidden Acres. She is on my Blogs I Read List and she made a lovely cherry pie that you might like to check out. She is a Michigan girl and she swears by the tart Michigan cherries for a perfect pie.
Today is errand day including a trip to my favorite place, the library!! Maybe I can find a good book today. I live in hope.
