I hope you are enjoying the last "official" month of summer! Please accept my apologies for not posting last week. I flew to a work conference in San Diego and the wifi was really spotty in the hotel which made it quite difficult to complete a post. I'll finish up that post at another time. For now I would like to share about yesterday's fruit picking experience.
My family has been eager for me to make a peach cobbler so we awoke early and headed to a u-pick farm area. The farm we chose had u-pick yellow peaches, white peaches, plums and heirloom tomatoes.
We are not huge fans of white peaches so we were on the lookout for yellow ones. Unfortunately only two of the trees had yellow peaches-petite ones and they were rock hard. Hence no peach cobbler...I will share the my recipe later in another post.
I'm most excited about the heirloom tomatoes we picked because our vegetable garden was very unsuccessful this summer. I believe the variety is Brandywine-the type I grew last year. These tomatoes were incredibly tasty. Last night I made a pasta sauce with them and just enjoyed eating them chopped with feta cheese and a dash of pepper.
Well, back onto our peach theme. Early last spring I purchased a peach colored Paragon teacup on ebay which inspired this post. My favorite color is orange so this teacup being peach caught my eye on ebay.
Please join me in the pergola for a morning tea...
Choose a seat.
Today we will be drinking "White Orchard" by Mighty Leaf which is a white tea with melon and peach flavors.
The Beehouse teapot fits the color scheme well.
I'm so drawn to the intricate patterns on Paragon pieces and the gold scalloped edges. This teacup appears as if it has never been used. Was it a gift that was placed in a curio chest?
Come join me another time as we share peach cobbler. For now, enjoy your tea times this week!
