Remember those challenges that went around for awhile that made you answer which blogger’s table you’d choose to dine at? It was so fun, albeit hard, to answer that question and it was one of those things you figured wouldn’t really happen anyway. (Although, Rosemary if you keep posting those market shots, expect a jetlagged Greg and Katherine on your doorstep any day.)
Well imagine my surprise and delight, when Jamie from A Dash of Domestic e-mailed me a few weeks ago to say she was in Little Rock and was wondering how close we were. Close. We got to meet her and her lovely family, show off the garden, introduce the dogs. It was a great evening. I force fed her a bit of sweet potato pizza. And we sat down for dessert.
We got a kick out of her little boy — if you can call a 14-year-old who’s taller than both of us little — admiring our vintage iPod. Greg proceeded to show him his turntable and vinyl collection. Jamie and her family were gracious, wonderful guests. And what made the night even better was that peaches are in season.
Peaches stuffed with Amaretti
- 1/2 cup crushed Amaretti (about a cup whole)
- 2 tbsp melted butter
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- 1-2 tbsp Amaretto
- 4 peaches
Slice peaches in half and remove pits. Scoop out enough flesh to make a well in each peach that’s about a tablespoon large. Dice up the peach flesh you removed and mix with the remaining ingredients. Divide filling between each peach half. Place peaches, filling side up in a brownie pan and drizzle about a quarter cup liquid, water or white wine, in the bottom. Bake peaches at 350 until tender, about 20 minutes. Serve warm with or without ice cream.
