In Season: Peaches, Up On the Hill, Butter Pecan

1. The Peach-Almond Galette has a wonderful layer of ground almonds made with almond extract under the peaches. It adds a delicious almond flavor with a tiny bit of crunchy texture at the bottom of the buttery crust.
2. Husband, Daughter #4, Henri-the-Schnoodle and I silently and companionably water the plants around the church buildings. The warm, breezy, summer evening and beautiful mountain views makes it a pleasant task.
3. When we've finished, we treat ourselves to ice cream cones at Bruester's.

  1. I had more than my share of food this weekend, so I'm feeling deprived today. :) I wish some of that gallette would just fly over here and into my mouth.

  2. Lynn, So often your comments make me laugh. : )

  3. Please give me that recipe. I love both almonds and peaches!
