Peach State says: Summer Kitchen

This is a Tomato and Goat Cheese Tart similar to the one I will prepare later today. My concept started with a pic and a friend’s recipe. I got the recipe from her yesterday and immediately began tweaking it. My friend made her Tomato Tart yesterday and said she would share the ins and outs with me this morning. I will write again later and show you, step by step, how to have a taste of summer from a Summer Kitchen.

You will not have to wait long…I plan on starting this delicious recipe before lunch. (translation: after the two older boys go to work!) I will also be making another Peach Cobbler today! Mmm! I do love the summer fruits and vegis! See You Then and Wish me Luck!

Peach State says: The Final Countdown!

And here we are at the edge of insanity. The tropical-storm has left mounds of unfolded laundry on the dinning room table as drapes of clean, un-hung shirts decorate the elegant high backed chairs. An oversized bag, strategically placed to catch the non-packed items, waits to be evacuated in the last moments. Check marks line the itemized page showing the dedicated and non-stop vigilance followed in this, The Final Countdown!

One moment of ceasing, as the cascading hot water splashes against the dinner dishes and breakfast bowls….Shh! That still small voice rises above the swirling clicks.

Relaxing relief floods in allowing for a lull in the chaotic hustle. The schedule is tricky with overlapping demands upon my remaining time. I can do this…I will do this…after all…“I’m Mom!”

The warning bell sounds drawing me back to the task at hand. Back to work and the realization of reality…2 days!

Okay…so the description was a little over the top…but it sure was more fun to describe it this way than to admit my house is a bit of a mess. At least it will be over soon and I will be on my way to enjoy the seasonably hot temperatures somewhere else. Have a great day!

Peach State says: I Know Where You’ve Been This Summer!

You know it is summer when the beach pics begin to crash the Facebook status updates. The constant series of waves, filled with smiling faces and scenic beauty, ebb and flow filling those landlocked at work with a swelling desire to escape. We see the packed cars racing to different warm sandy regions…fashion hats and sunglasses worn by all…as sunrises and sunsets flood the screen. The vast comments and likes attached to each postcard pic give the readers the title of “pen-pal”! Thank you for including me in your adventures and for sharing the fun and beauty those with you experienced…I Know Where You’ve BeenThis Summer!

Here are some of the Vacation Pictures from my Facebook Friends!

And what would a vacation be without cups in the car…Hmmm? Someone found the Starbucks! I would recognize those cups anywhere…

I can’t wait to put my own pics on Facebook. My pics will not have white sands and seagulls. There will be no cute family of dolphins swimming in the mountains. I am so excited and the countdown for today is 7! Seven days until we leave…”Sorry, I was doing the dance of joy!” Now that I Know Where You’ve Been This Summer you will have to endure looking at my pics while you sit behind your desk at work. Have a great day!
