5 Jen and the Giant Peach

I asked Joe what I should blog about today and he quickly replied 'your peach'. So here you go...

This is hands down my favourite time of year for food. Corn on the cob that is crispy and sweet, tomatoes that are as red on the inside as they are on the outside, blueberries that make B one happy little clam and peaches. Oh so delicious peaches. They really go with everything. Peach crisp, on ice cream, on cereal, on salad, on yogurt or just stand alone.

Through the power of TV I learned several years ago that peaches should never be kept in the fridge. Best.advice.ever. Leaving them out of the fridge keeps them juicy and tender....because the worst thing is when you bite into a peach and it is as hard as an apple.

Today (like every day this week) I took a peach with me to work. I saved it for later in the day as my treat and really a way to keep me from going to the vending machine when I get my 2PM sugar craving. Now this peach....it delivered. Have you ever bitten into something and instantly your first thought is 'OMG THIS IS THE BEST THING I HAVE EVER EATEN'. That was totally me today. But then about half way through this kickass peach I had to stop. I needed to take a break from it. Not to save it and make it last longer but because it was so sweet that I just couldn't eat anymore. 

I have like 6 more in the pantry and hope hope hope that it is as good as this one (but maybe not as sweet).
