Peach cobbler sounds good:) Love the peaches. I just got an entire bag of them from my parent’s peach tree, big, sweet & juicy….enjoy yours!

Thanks for the memories! I am remembering ski trips in middle school listening to that album on my diskman with my very first boyfriend- Peter- who I was scared to talk to!!!! HA! We just sat on the bus listening to the album over and over again!!!!!!! Too funny.

Peaches right now are so so so yummy!

Cheers to a 90s classic!! Breakfast looks yummy. Bold move to go sans banana! (I have a fear of nana-less smoothies) I’m also rolling in peaches – peach smoothie last night, peachy snack at the moment… Love the summertime bounty :)

I’m back after a week in the OBX and just have to say it is so weird seeing you eat the same local foods (Twin Oaks Tofu!!) that I eat and go to the same places I like to go when I visit C’ville. I don’t think my mind has caught up with the fact that you live there now!

That’s funny – I thought the same thing when I read this post. It was only RECENTLY that my husband and I heard it playing somewhere and I sang along… he looked at me and smirked. I knew I must’ve been singing about something that was not what I THOUGHT I was singing about! Kath’s post made me laugh because she also wrote “No bananas, just peaches.” Too bad EVERYTHING gets turned into something sexual these days… it was a catchy song!

37 Gabriela @ Une Vie Saine August 23, 2010 at 10:25 am

I’m literally eating a peach as I type this- so good! My dad bought two dozen yesterday, so I might just turn into one :) Hope you have a great day!

HAHA! Every time I cut up a peach for my daughter, I start singing: “Peaches come from a can! They were put there by a man!”

Love it.

Kath! The blog looks good, though I really really liked how you had it before. Your house looks so nice – I really love that color purple. What does Matt think!? I’m glad you are liking your new place. I just moved back to school so I am adjusting to a new spot too. It’s going well. Enjoy thos delicious looking peaches!

I can’t wait to see all the ways you will use your peaches. A chopped peach in a salad might make a great lunch option! :) And I’ve been really into a chopped peach with some granola and almond milk for dessert.

There were some peaches at a farmers market in Manzanita Oregon that were the size of my face. I just stood there and stared for about 20 minutes.

Kath, I love your new banner. I was looking to see if Chia Seeds were on your wooden board and did not notice them. I think you might have started a Chia Seed revolution, since you have been eating them, I know I bought some to try and I am sure many others as too.

I don’t have a microwave either, and when I want to melt some peanut butter or whatnot, I do a little bit of MacGyvering, even though it might sound like more work that necessary…double boiler! I just boil some water in the kettle, pour it in a small bowl, and put my bowl of pb on top, and let it sit for a few. Softens up nicely!

Hi Kath. I just got myself a french press and was wondering which brands of coffee do you drink and if you can give me any tips on the brewing process? I was never too good with a regular coffee maker so I am hoping the less technology the better for me. Thanks. Love your posts as always.
