For Tuesday, June 21st, 2011
Folklore claims that Alexander the Great brought the peach to Greece, although there is no proof. The Romans are also said to have helped spread peaches throughout Europe. The fuzzy, tasty fruit has found itself as a muse to creative types, from Virgil, Chaucer, and Cezanne, all the way to Beck's Peaches and Cream. The peach is a drupe, similar to the cherry or plum, or any fruit with a hard stone.
From fresh peaches and whipped cream to peaches and cream roll or homemade peaches and cream ice cream, there are many ways to celebrate the holiday.
1 box yellow cake mix
1 box powdered sugar
1 stick butter
8 ounces cream cheese
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Place peaches in pan, spread cream cheese/sugar mixture over peaches. Sprinkle cake mix on top. Lightly sprinkle cinnamon, the place pats of butter on cake mix.
Bake at 350 degrees for 25-40 minutes until peaches are tender. Cool and serve. May top with whipped cream or ice cream.
Summer is a promissory note signed in June, its long days spent and gone before you know it, and due to be repaid next January.
