Just Peachey!

A summer favorite. . . peach pie made from fresh, ripe peaches.

This pie is just out of the oven and still warm.
I wanted to share this simple and delicious recipe with you.


Peach Pie
You'll need a single pastry crust.
To save time, I used a Pillsbury refrigerated pie crust from my grocer's dairy case.
6 peaches, peeled and sliced
Filling:
1/3 cup melted butter
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup flour
2 teaspoons vanilla
Mix these five ingredients together and pour over the peaches.
Bake at 350 degrees for an hour.


When cooled, serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and enjoy one of summer's best treats!

In the Garden

Today's weather forecast is for lots of heat and humidity. It's already a very humid morning. My camera lens fogged up when I left my air conditioned house causing this halo effect from the early morning sun. Pretty!

Little water droplets look like clear beads on this lady's mantle leaf.


A new pink variegated water lily bloomed for the first time this morning.


And the goldfish in the pond are waiting for their morning feeding.
