It’s been a heavy sort of week. Lots of seriousness and such in these parts. And though I have perhaps just a little more I should be saying, I’ll wait until next week because I think everyone could use some frivolity to lead into the weekend, yes?
I had a large box of produce I needed to use up this week, including a big handful of some truly delectable looking peaches. I had an epic fail earlier in the week with my Pawcurean Beety Treaties which failed to convince both humans and dogs that they were edible- back to the drawing board on that one! No matter. Peaches are a lot easier to work with than the much maligned beet.
Aren’t they delectable looking? It was only out of a sense of duty that I made anything at all with them, as opposed to just eating them as is (also a viable choice. Yum!)
The goal was to make a cobbler good enough for us to gobble up, but also safe enough for a well behaved dog to get to share a bite or two as well. I started with this Healthy Peach Cobbler recipe, which is pretty straightforward in terms of ingredients. I cut the honey in half and it was still plenty sweet.
I only made a half recipe since that was all the peaches I had on hand, so instead of a big baking dish they wound up in little miniature springform pans. Another wedding gift I am just getting around to using a decade later. I have no idea why I registered for these things in the first place, but they sure are cute.
After baking, you end up with a really delightful little peach tart.
Who you calling a tart? asks the apple.
I think this was my husband’s attempt at artistic food photography. We both agreed the sunflower was a bit much.
I have to say I don’t care for the way that sunflower is eyeing my tart.
There was a lot of fighting over this one. Brody got about a quarter gobbler so as to avoid a major sugar rush, leaving the remaining 3/4 for the kids to fight over like hyaenas. While they were distracted, I hid the second gobbler for after they went to bed. (There were no such maneuvers required for the Beety Treaties.)
