Summer Pleasures

7.20.2013

Summertime means my favorite vegetables and fruit can be purchased fresh.

Last weekend while on a little road trip in north Georgia we stopped at a produce stand.

I look forward each summer to Silver Queen corn.  I just love it and this place had huge carts full of it just  picked from the garden behind the stand. Bad blogger did not have my camera with me. :(

We bought a dozen ears of corn and have already eaten a couple of them. I just boiled them, but if we could get just one afternoon without rain I would like to grill some.

My favorite fruit is peaches. They are perfect when they are really ripe and the juice runs down your arm when you bite into it.

I love them sliced over my cereal or even just with milk and a little sugar.

My favorite way to enjoy them though is warm peach cobbler with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
I did not take any pictures of the one I made. Again bad blogger.

This is what it looked like and the recipe I used from allrecipes.com  that I had pinned.


So what are your favorite summer pleasures?

By the way, I am not enjoying any kind of summer pleasures this weekend and sorry for my absence commenting on your blogs. If you follow me on facebook then you know what I am doing this weekend that I shared a couple days ago. I am NOT a happy camper.

Hope your weekend is much better than mine!

The basket used for display purposes was purchased for $5 a couple years ago at a flea market.

  3. Peaches, corn, tomatoes - all good summer things, and all getting ruined by all the rain! We are cooking ribs tonight and have decided to do them indoors because even though there is sun now . . . knowing this weather, there will soon be storms!

    Enjoy your yummy cobbler!

  9. Yummy, I love corn and eat it almost every day when it's in season. I do ours in the microwave in the husk. So easy and has tons of flavor that way.

  13. Silver Queen corn and fresh peaches! You hit two of my very favorite summer vegetables and fruits. We just returned from north Alabama where we had corn from my uncle's garden, and we brought fresh peaches home with us. Your photos are making me hungry for more of each.

  17. Kim, you have my sympathies! I know you like to paint but.....we all have our limits, don't we! That photo of the peaches with the water droplets on them is just outstanding! The rain ruined our Silver Queen corn that we had planted. We only got to eat a few ears that weren't damaged by some sort of fungus.

  24. I love summer corn. Those peaches look amazing. Kim, you need a better plan for the next time you want to hire a painter. Does you husband go fishing?

  30. I have the hardest time finding good peaches. The best ones we ever had were some we bought at Pike's Peak in Seattle visiting my sister. They were huge and would drip down your arm, like you said. They were expensive, but worth every single penny. Wish I could find some like that around here! Our favorite recipe to use fresh peaches with is blueberry-peach cobbler with vanilla ice cream. YUM! I'll have to share the recipe sometime. Your pictures are gorgeous.
