Peach Crisp/Weekend

Hope you are having a great weekend! Mine has been really nice but VERY busy!

Saturday: Taught Body Step and then ran home to throw together this Peach Crisp. I had picked up a HUGE basket of peaches from a local farm stand:

I cut them up and froze the majority of them. I used 9 big ones to make this beauty (using less sugar than last time):
After the crisp was out of the oven, I ran to get my hair done. Then Josh and I headed up to my parents house to see my sister and her husband (who were in town visiting) and to meet my new niece, Taylor. A few pics from the night, Josh and I:

Baby Taylor and my parents dog, Tedy:

Me, my sister, and Taylor:

For dinner my mom/dad made steak, corn on the cob, and spinach salad. Since I don't eat beef, I brought my own din din from home. I did however dig into the delicious corn and peach crisp ;)

Sunday: Up early to run/practice Body Attack a bit more. I then went to work getting the house fully cleaned before my parents, sister, brother-in-law, and baby Taylor arrived. I set out a few appetizers: crackers & pretzels, cheese, pepperoni, veggies, fruit, hummus (not pictured):

Lovely sunflowers I picked up at Harris Teeter for $1.99!
We met with the Realtor that helped Josh and I find our house to show my sister and her husband some potential homes (we're trying to get them to move down south!). Afterwards, we all headed to a restaurant called the Soda Water Grill for lunch. I had a boring salad ;)

Taylor kept dozing off in the car, so I was finally able to get a nice clear picture of her cuteness:



I think tonight will be spent mostly relaxing and doing some laundry! I am excited for the new Next Food Network Star and Kendra. What are you up to??

Yummm...peach crisp! I love all kinds of crisps. I much prefer the "crisp" crust to the cobbler biscuits.

Take care and have a wonderful week.

Peach crisp is my dad's favorite... I'm overdue for a birthda/father's day dinner, so I think you reminded me of what I need to make him!

What a doll! Congratulations on your new niece. I went to my parents' house this weekend and Snuffy's Aunt Jillian took every oppurtunity to cuddle and play with her. You aunts tend to be way more fun than mommies!

I could go to town with those peaches--yum! I love em' in and on everything!
With not eating beef do you find it hard/odd to eat at other peoples houses?
I know myself not eating beef, it can be somewhat of a problem at times when people cook meals with beef! [My family knows better ;-)]
