It reminded me of my wedding nearly 18 years ago. We lived in Arlington and mom liked to get Parker County Peaches every summer. During the week of my wedding, wouldn't you know, the bushel of peaches arrived. We had company, things still to do for the wedding and peaches to put in the freezer. But, we did it and we had fun in the process.
Here are the delicious beauties!
The peaches reminded me of when I was a little girl. I use to ride on the back of my daddy's bicycle to Squeezer's Palace (I think that's the name) in Wichita, Kansas, and blow kisses to everyone while we rode to get Peaches 'n Cream ice cream. Fun memories! So, naturally I just had to make homemade ice cream to go with the pie. It did not disappoint!
My friend Jack told me that if I saved the pits, dried them, and kept them until October, then I could plant them in my garden and have my own peach orchard. Wouldn't that be fun? Here are the pits that I have such high hopes for! "Pits that I have such high hopes for?" What a thought that is spiritually.
I'm in the mood to freeze more peaches. I hope we can pick up some more peaches over the weekend, but I've got to find a good way to freeze some squash from the garden. Any good ideas? Blessings to you this Tuesday!
