Have you had the peaches yet!  Oh my this season the peaches are divinely juicy, sweet, tangy and mouthwateringly delicious!  I can’t walk by the peach stand and the insane smell of fresh peaches ripening side by side as that beautiful rosy, peachy, orange-yellow color oozes ‘bite me!’ without loading them into my basket.  I bought ten yesterday and put them in the fridge.  When they were nice and cold I washed them, dried them and proceeded to eat four in a row as peach juice dripped down my face and neck – I smiled and licked the pit and my fingers until it was all gone. I made a delicious Peach Crumble with the rest – oh man the smells of the peaches roasting and crumble topping caramelizing in the oven is drives me insane.  Crumble hot from the oven is dreamy!
