I received the above Photo Essay in an email from a good friend of mine in Chicago. I fell in love with it immediately and knew I wanted to share it with readers of MTTD.

I did a brief internet search to try and find an author or a site that had originally published this picture essay so that I could give proper attribution.

It did not take me long to find the source of this lovely, thoughtful, and powerful Picture Essay.

It comes from a site titled: You Got to be Kiddings .

The byline is, Humor and musings from all around the Internet.

Other than that, there is no information about this blog or the person or persons who own or run it.

I did find the following in the Response Section of the One Word Essays post:

 

“Feel free to share. TTBOMK, nothing I publish is copyrighted. I do my level best to make sure that nothing I publish has a copyright on it. I try to honor the copyright of all those who have marked their work as such.”

 

If you like to laugh and like good humor you really should go check this blog out. It is hilarious every single day.

I seldom subscribe to other blogs cause I just get way too many emails clogging up my email In-Box. So these days I am very cautious what I sign up for. You Got To Be Kiddings is only one of three subscriptions I am currently signed up for.

It is that good.

Featured Recipe        Peach Basil Sauce Over Raspberry Sorbet

IMG_6487

IMG_6488The peaches this year have been super sweet. The sweetest I ever remember.  I knew when I made some Blackberry Butter about a week ago. First clue was how easy the peach cut in half. Then the pit practically popped out of the peach on its own. 

Today’s peaches were just as ripe. They are SO sweet they need no sugar what-so-ever. None.

This recipe is like Apple Sauce. You can use it as a side dish or spread over pork chops or anything you want.

Today I am using it as a topping for ice cream…….or more precisely sorbet.

Since I made the sauce with wine and basil it has a slight tartness to it. So it is perfect paired with sweet raspberry sorbet.

This is what you will need for 4 servings:

3 peaches                  

3-4 basil leaves*

¼ cup sweet white wine**

Sorbet  or ice cream of your choice   

IMG_6445                   

Optional: Crushed pistachios

* Use other flavor that you might like: vanilla, cinnamon, other

** Can substitute grape juice, peach juice, or other juice

Here is what you do:

Wash the peaches. Dice 2 of them.

Place the diced peaches in a pot and add the wine and the basil.

Cook over medium high heat for about 12-15 minutes.

Remove the basil and let cool completely.

Place the cooled peach sauce in a processor and gently process until it is a saucy consistency.

Spoon some of the sauce over some ice cream or sorbet.

Enjoy.
