A Simple Peachy Pleasure

Let's talk Country Pleasures...

It's Friday and I want us all
to start the weekend with 
a big ol' country SMILE!

That's right,
now put all that Work and Business and Stress stuff away
and start thinking 
about a land 
where everything is 
just PEACHY!

Like right here
 at the Sall Farm...
 a friend brought us some 
peaches and we're
making a peach pie!!

When you think about simple 
country pleasures doesn't 
a pie on the windowsill
come to mind?

That's my goal...
so I called up my resident
expert pie maker
and had her come help 
me make a peach pie!

Mom's Fresh Peach Pie recipe 
calls for sweet cream and peaches!
She's always made pie crusts with Crisco,
but that is highly debatable! 
If you are a lard lover, your pies are the best!
yada, yada, yada
I've heard both sides!

Mom's crusts always turn out nice and flaky,
just the way I like them!

She whipped out that pie crust
like an old pro...
we peeled the peaches,
and mixed up the cream
and sugar...
poured it over the top
and in the oven it went!

We had a little left over crust and a few peach slices
so "Mrs. Crocker" did her magic
and voila
a peach dumpling!!

We hung up our aprons and then 
had a little blogging time!
Mom's getting tired of hearing 
about her daughter's blog on the street,
so she's invested in a new laptop!
Lesson one started with the 
sweet smell of peach pie emanating from 
my oven...
I only hope she can compute
as well as she can make pies!?

The dumpling came out of the 
oven first...
we devoured it before
I even thought about getting 
a picture of it!
The pie came out next...
and onto the windowsill it went...

The pie did last long 
enough for the guys to get 
home from work and 
we all enjoyed
a taste of heaven 
after a great lasagna dinner!

Mmmm, nothin' says lovin' like
a pie from the oven!!


Hope your weekend is filled
with peace, love, and pie!

What a wonderful memory to cherish. I bet that was the most tasty peach pie ever. Maybe your mom will write her own blog, too!

Your pie looks delicious! I used to put my pies on the windowsill. Now that we remodeled the window is in the center of the house. Cute post! Thanks for linking it to Home Sweet Home!
