my mum decided to stop by for a "quick" visit on Saturday after her garage sale-ing adventures. i had offered to have a tasty treat for us, but never made anything the night before. i searched online for something quick involving peaches, preferably that wouldn't need to be done with yeast or any fridge/freezer time.
i found this recipe for peach scones from King Arthur Flour. they tasted pretty darn good, though they didn't brown up like they should have and didn't shape up very attractively. i think i mixed them too much after adding the peaches (because i felt like they weren't incorporating), so i had too much peach juice spread throughout. i also meant to brush with milk and add some sugar crystals on top, but totally forgot until it was too late. the flavor of the scones was yummy, though and i suggest you make them. just remember not to over-mix after the peaches go in and to add some pretty sugar on top.
these peaches are seriously amazing. i got them from Mason Farms this past Thursday and they are so tasty. not sure where they are from though, too early for peaches in Erie...
also, we had another batch of crazy clouds, hail and tornado warnings in Erie on Saturday. the tornado warnings weren't very serious as there weren't any touchdowns reported, and all the action was much more south than we were located.
however, this hail was nuts. i mean, crazy-sized chunks of ice being chucked from the sky, bouncing off everything and sounding like someone was pelting rocks at our door. craziest thing i've ever seen. i apologize for the nuts-o pics, mum was in front of me and i was shooting from behind the screen door.
