A recipe post! Finally. And to mark the occasion and my first food post as a Georgia resident, I made something with peaches, because of course. The peach part was easy. The challenge was making something not horribly bad for us (we ate a lot of great food over the weekend and I know I’ll be paying the price on the scale this week), and something that wouldn’t take too much effort (we had enough other housework to keep us busy). So, with the above criteria in mind, the idea for an easy, portion-controlled peach crisp for two was born. The results were quite satisfying, but the real accomplishment here is that I actually pulled off blogging about it. High fives all around.
Without doing it on purpose, I have this yearly habit of eating one fruit for most of the summer season. Last year it was berries and the year before that watermelon. This summer, my fruit’s been peaches, big and juicy ones. Aren’t they the best?
While these seasonal obsessions often come about without any obvious reason why, things are a bit more clear-cut this year: they’ve been in ample and free supply at work, and Brian and I have our eyes set on moving to Atlanta. This here easy peach smoothie was made with Peach Capital, U.S.A in mind.
Bonjour de Bruxelles! Brussels is the last stop on my fellowship before it all comes to an end on Saturday. Looking back, I can confidently say that I’ll be leaving a more educated journalist, a better citizen of this great big planet of ours, and so very happy to return to a country where water is most commonly served still, not sparkling.
I’m a bit of a carbonationphobe and too many times on this trip did I make the mistake of confusing “Classic” and “Naturelle.” You’d think they would mean the same thing, and yet one comes with stingy bubbles and the other doesn’t. Still, phobia aside, I’ve found myself tolerating the sparkling stuff a little more, which brings me to today’s Thirsty Thursday post. Sometimes a fizzy drink is so refreshing and delicious that even I can’t help but waiver from my anti-bubbles stance. This green tea peach soda with its sparkling peach water, my beloved green tea, honey, peach slices and mint, is exactly one of those rule-bending beverages that you just have to try and make for yourself.
In my humble opinion, China makes some of the best breads and cakes, but pies not so much. McDonald’s does sell taro pies, but I’m not a fan.
That’s why I’m so very much craving some pie like this peach one here. It’s one of the many things I’m looking forward to baking when I return and have an entire month off from school. Heaven.
I’ve spent just about a month of my summer in China. Think about all the summer pies, trips to the pool and popsicles I’ve missed out on. One word: staggering. I’ve got lots of catching up to do, but enough about my perpetual state of behindness, recipe info after the jump.
