There has been some thank you knitting going on.
I'm in the process of making a friend's dog a winter coat. Little Chico will be so cute in this Linus Sweater. Chico's human mom, Jamie , is doing me an enormous favor, and I want to thank her in a big way.
I've practically finished the front. This pattern is so easy and so fun. It's a free Ravelry pattern.
We came across some amazing Peaches today. The Peach vendor/grower gave us a few tips for picking peaches.
*Never pick a peach with any green on it.
* A peach will soften once picked but it won't sweeten.
*It is the buyer's job to soften the peaces. Place them on a sill until the give a bit with finger press.
Here is the Orchard's Grilled Peaches Recipe!
Peaches, 1 for each person
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup brown sugar
juice of one lemon
1/4 tsp black pepper
Halve the peaches. Remove the pits. Drizzle with 2 tsp lemon juice.
Cover with plastic wrap and set aside.
In saucepan combine vinegar, brown sugar, more lemon juice and pepper until reduced by 1/2.
Place peaches cut side down on hot lightly oiled grill.
Cover and cook 2 minutes or until there are grill marks.
Turnover and baste the cut sides with the vinegar mixture.
Cover your grill and cook about 3 more minutes until softened.
