Gonna eat a lot of peaches

A neighbor gave me a bag of fresh peaches from the farmer's market, and Dean begged for some cobbler, so last night after work, I whipped one up.

Before it meets heat

I used a recipe for a quick crust, since it was a weeknight. You melt the butter in the dish first, then pour a batter containing milk in the pan, and put the peaches on top. The crust bakes up around the peaches. And of course, you can't eat it without a scoop of vanilla.

The cobbler required less peaches than I thought, so I decided to serve some with goat cheese and fresh basil. I also blended some with rum, ice, and agave honey.

Millions of peaches, peaches for me

After stuffing myself with peaches in liquid and solid forms, I finished up Jill's peachy cowl (fitting, no?). Even though I made her the scarf, Jill requested something she could pull up over her nose, and a cowl seemed perfect for this.

Yarn: Malabrigo Worsted, Peach Tree
Needles: Size 8, Knitpicks Circular (knit flat)
Time: 5 days
I loved this pattern. The stitches, although a little confusing at first, quickly develop into a satisfying pattern. The original called for one full repeat plus half of a second, but I was satisfied with the height of the cowl, so I only did one full repeat. I found some cute pink buttons to finish it off.

I can't wait to have more cobbler tonight!


  1. Wow, all of your peach stuff looks delicious! Austin is a big fan of cobbler too.

  2. Yum! My mouth is watering for a sweet, juicy peach. I'll take the salad and drink, please.
