|SUMMER'S BLUE PLATE SPECIAL|
Tomatoes with supper and fresh sliced peaches for desert. Wonderful summer. Sometimes peaches and cottage cheese for lunch. Dreaming of peaches and (ice) cream. Peaches taste and look like summer to me.
I remember my mom canning peaches from the trees at the house. As I think of it now, I can almost feel the peach juice running down my wrists, the sweet acidity stinging my arms and the kitchen hot as blazes. I only "helped" my mom can peaches once or twice in my life. I was too young (nine years old maybe) to appreciate it or enjoy it then, but I am glad to have those memories now. Sweet summer memories.
