Peach pies and love go together...

 When I make pies, I think about the people I'm making them for, do you?  I love to see smiling faces when I announce after supper, "Who wants pie?"   When I'm rolling out pie dough, I don't usually make just one pie because my pie crust recipe makes enough for seven shells so I always roll it all out and lay each crust into pie plates whether I make them up into pies or not.  I use what I need and freeze the rest.  I stack the unbaked crusts between wax paper and then wrap them up in grocery bags before I put them in the freezer.  It sure is handy to go grab a frozen pie shell when I want to whack up a pie or two in a hurry.

 Today I made two fresh peach pies.  To me, there is nothing like the first fresh peach pie and nothing like a Colorado peach pie for deep satisfaction and joy.  We were supposed to have our vet and his helper come pregnancy test the heifers today, but they had truck problems and got delayed so we'll do that job tomorrow,

but for the now, Hubs and I will eat a slice of peach pie and celebrate our special day.  Today is our anniversary -- 31 one years and still in love.  Love and peach pies go together.  (He's my peach after all.)

  11. Happy Anniversary! I read somewhere that today, the day after, is Eat-a-Peach day. I just bought a case but they weren't ready. :-(
    Baking a pie for your peach is surely a lovey thing to do!

  13. I love both of these last posts. Hmm. Must be the food :) Peach pie is my favorite pie, and probably on my top 5 best foods, but I don't get it often enough! Over on this side of the world, South Carolina peaches are the way to go, but yours certainly look perfect and delicious. Wish I could have a piece :) Aren't we glad summer is winding down? I know I am. Blessings on your ranch! Sounds like all is well.
