Dessert!

I know, crazy title for a Monday morning post. But, we went to the farmer's market on Saturday and grabbed some beautiful peaches and blueberries. The peaches were so fragrant, mmmm.  We decided to try Smitten Kitchen's Peach Blueberry Cobbler. Amazing and easy.  If you haven't been to her site, you really must go and see what she is cooking up. Here is the finished product, before dessert last night........


I am trying very hard to resist this morning. I am thinking that it would be great with a cup of coffee....but I did run this morning and am trying to be good.

I know that I haven't posted any pictures of work lately. I seem to have hit a block and have given myself permission to not feel guilty about not creating at the worktable. In my head I kept saying that I would have lots of time this summer to work but nothing is flowing.  Why do I have to give myself permission? Also struggling with that question, and the guilt for not creating.  Ugh.  I have started taking more pictures - I know, another hobby.  But, I figure that I do need to know how to work this blasted thing so I can take great pictures of my pieces. HA!  Perhaps tonight....... ;)

Here's to a great, productive Monday. May it be wonderful for you all also.  Off to work I go.  Bye!

Courtney - thanks for your post - would love to get together sometime or swap beads or any kind of nerdy beadiness. I plan on going to the first ArtBliss retreat in September - do you? I am taking the link love and bangarang classes. Trying to decide if I should be cheap and stay at the hotel or commute back and forth to Dulles...

p.s. - I just made a blueberry/peach crisp - didn't realize how great the flavors are together!

Hey Courtney..this looks SCRUMPTIOUS!!! Since my son and I have been cooking a lot together (he's making macaroni and cheese as I type!), we should try something like this... and I visited Smitten Kitten's blog (thanks for the link, never heard of it before)...she has 184 comments on this post! Sure looks yummy. Don't feel guilty about not creating... I do understand how you feel. I feel tredendously guilty about creating while the kids are home...that's why there's a lack of anything new on my blog!

I love cobbler. My favorite is one you wouldn't think would taste good -- a strawberry (!) cobbler with a lemon cookie shortbread crust!
