We had about 6-7 peaches left and Yes!Chef! said we needed (I use the term, “We”, loosely because Yes!Chef! does not make desserts) to make one more dessert with the remaining peaches.

I mentioned last post that a friend of my youngest son had brought us about 12 luscious peaches.  We quickly put them to good use.  The first meal was a peach salad with thyme and blue cheese and steak and pecans.  It was delicious.
