July is National Peach Month
Something my friends and I like to do is to celebrate Summer. For this year's theme we decided to go with a British Style Summer in July Brunch today. As opposed to the American version of spicy savory, we prefer savory dishes, especially appetizers and/or refreshments that include cakes and savories that we enjoy. We started out with a glass of Stella Rosa Peach Wine and Cartwright England & Butter "Delightfully Moreish," Strawberry & White Chocolate Biscuits.
My table included fresh Peach Roses and White Lilies. As we gathered around the table we talked about trips and books we've read. We got caught up on each others' opportunities for travel and books. The book we chose to read and discuss was a Novel by Sarah Penner called "The Lost Apothecary," which was perfect because the Secret Apothecary shop is hidden in eighteenth century London!
For the main course, I made grilled peaches which is very simple and easy and it kept me out of the kitchen and inside with my guests. All I had to do was wash the peaches, slice them in half, remove the nut, grill them in foil for a few minutes and sprinkle cinnamon on top. Then serve! It was quick, easy, and delicious!
We followed up with hot tea as the British prefer over Iced Tea; then said our goodbyes. Peaches are healthy and packed with nutrients. They are low in calories, a great source of fiber, and tastes delicious. A good peach helps to detox foods and cleanse your body. They provide potassium and vitamins A and C. They are grown in many different states but the most popular are California, South Carolina, New Jersey, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Washington, Michigan, New York and West Virginia. But I have to say, my Texas peaches from Parker County in Weatherford were absolutely delicious!
