Just Peachy

Last Thursday evening, we went on a stroll for dinner, because when family comes to town, and we've been out of town, I become a slacker at grocery shopping! As we were on our drive to Cafe Rio, our usual choice when we're looking for something cheap, we noticed the Thursday Farmer's Market, across the street from the stadium. I love me a good Market. And, I've never been to any of the Provo ones, sadly! Tanner spotted a Wood Fired Pizza Truck (Since those are theee new things in Provo) and we knew we had to stop! We got a delicious pizza from Fiore Pizza, one for $10, and got a FREE one, because it was a "display" one that had sat out for 30 minutes. Hey, it was free, and they stuck it back in the oven! Not complainin. So, yes, we ate for 10 smackaroos that glorious Thursday night. And, you need to follow Fiore on Insta, because it gives their locations for the week, and it's worth tracking them down! They also cater, and I'm trying to come up with a good reason to host another party. But come on, we all know that isn't too hard for me! :)

As we were walking to our car at closing, a lady that was selling peaches said to me, "I have a 12 pound box left of peaches, if you want some?", So I of course asked how how much, and she said $5!!! I was sold. I mean look at those! So, obviously I should have only taken like half the box, but I couldn't resist.  

We got home that night, and made peach jam together! Mmmm! I always remember peeling the peaches, when we made jam when I was younger, and was amazed when I could just boil them for a minute, and that the skins just literally peeled off in one piece!

Then I blended them up, we like it chunky, and we even added more chunks to the jars! :) 

I used 14 peaches, and I still had this many left!

Jam setting until morning...

I made Peach Cobbler on Sunday, and it was amazing with those juicy, yummy peaches!
