Peach Season....

We placed the bushel of Windblow variety peaches on our kitchen table to ripen. I froze 7 quarts of them this morning and am going to finish them as they are ready. I like getting them like this and that way I don't have to process them all at the same time. I plan to use some of them to make the peach trifle shown below

Peach Trifle
1 (3 1/2-ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix
2 cups milk
6 large fresh peaches, peeled and sliced
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/2 (20-ounce) package pound cake
1/3 cup bourbon
1 cup whipping cream
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted
Prepare pudding mix according to package directions, using 2 cups milk. Cover and chill 5 minutes. Toss sliced peaches with granulated sugar. Cut pound cake into 1/2-inch slices. Place half of cake slices on bottom of a trifle dish or deep bowl, drizzle evenly with half of bourbon. Spoon half of peach mixture evenly over cake slices. Spread half of pudding over peaches. Repeat with remaining cake slices, bourbon, peach mixture, and pudding. Cover and chill at least 2 hours.

My New Book................

I had my second book printed from my blog. I have had both of my books printed by
Blog2Print . I am very satisfied with their quality and service. I ordered it and received it in less than a week's time. My book is half the size of last year due to the fact of my husband's relapse of MS, my fall, and getting ready for the birth of our latest grandchild. Above is the cover of the book and below are the first and last pages.

If you try them, I hope you will be as happy with the results as I am.
