National Peach Month

August is National Peach Month, according to the American Food and Drink Days database.  I love peaches especially in hot peach cobbler topped with vanilla ice cream.  Peach trees are not native to deep south Texas where I grew up so we usually bought them at the grocery store.  When they weren't in season I would buy them canned in light syrup.  When I was in elementary we used to get peaches as part of our school lunch.  One of the first things I learned to bake from scratch was peach cobbler.  It has also been a while since I have made a peach pie.  I'm going to wait until winter to bake because its way too hot during the summer.  At this point a store bought peach pies works perfectly for me.  I like adding peaches to my oatmeal and in my spinach salad with balsamic vinaigrette.  Getting hungry.....
When I think of peaches now I can't help but think of Paula Deen, the sweetest Georgia peach.  I just adore her cooking shows and her fun-loving charm.  She inspires people to be themselves and expect great things in the simple things in life.  God gave her a special smile and way of making people feel special.  Her success inspires me and makes me believe that great things can come happen when we serve from the heart.
