Peaches are in season and I’ve been buying them by the basket-full. Funny thing is, growing up I liked peaches but I would always avoid eating them. It’s kinda silly but I didn’t like the peach fuzz. It must have been a texture thing because I would always choose nectarines over peaches because of the fuzz. I knew when I was making these Peach Monkey Buns that I’d be peeling the peaches so there would be no fuzz in these buns!
Peaches, for me, have always reminded me of the end of summer. Time to get ready for back-to-school and that Fall weather is near. I think the Fall weather has already arrived here, though, with the cool temperatures we’ve been having.
I’ve also noticed that some of the southern schools have already started back to school. Thank goodness we don’t start for almost 3 more weeks because I am certainly not ready (or wanting) to go back to work. Plus, I’m not ready to give up on summer just yet!
Also, what ever happened to just showing up at school with your new clothes and shoes on, maybe a new backpack and not worrying about school supplies? You should see the list of things I need to buy for my kids. Good thing I stock up early!
Another thing I hope to stock up on this school year is homemade snacks and lunches. I was thinking of incorporating some of those new meal ideas here on the blog. I know I’ve only featured sweet treats up until now but I’m going to include some savory dishes as well! I’m looking forward to it and will start to include them in September. I’ve been getting a lot of great ideas from Life Made Delicious so I know I won’t run out of things to make!
If you need some more inspiration to use up some of those fresh peaches, you might want to take a look at some of these ideas.
