I love making lists. I think that is one of the reasons 43 Things is one of my favorite websites. It is all about making lists and marking things off. Sometimes (ok…everyday), I’ll even add something to my daily sticky note lists, just so I can mark it off!
After finally finishing my “I Will Make This Someday – Magazine Version” list, which let me tell you… was quite the project… I felt like I needed to make something just so I could mark it off the list.
Out shopping for produce yesterday, I came across a stand that had fresh peaches. Juicy, ripe and delicious peaches. Peaches have never been my favorite fruit, but there was something about these peaches that were so tempting. I decided to pick up a few pounds to bring home, remembering that one of the recipes on my list was for a peach cobbler.
Texas Peach Cobbler is what I ended up making with the fresh peaches I brought home. This recipe was a perfect use of the peaches as the cobbler complemented the true flavors of the peaches well. If you, like me, enjoy making lists then make sure you add Texas Peach Cobbler to your list…even if it is just so you can mark it off the same day!
