Peach Milkshakes

by Milisa on May 19, 2012

There were lots of peach orchards where I grew up in Arkansas.  In fact, they still have a Peach Festival every summer to celebrate and I really miss those ripe, juicy peaches fresh off of the tree.

Last summer my Mom gave me a bunch of  peaches that she grew on her peach trees and we made a ton of peach smoothies and shakes.  My oldest son was in heaven, he loves peach everything.

Well it isn’t quite time for fresh peaches this year but I had a huge craving for one of those peach milkshakes.  I bought some canned peaches, drained them and froze them.  A peach milkshake is so good that I would put it in the comfort food category.   I spice up my peach milkshakes with a little cinnamon and a touch of nutmeg just like a good southern peach pie.

This has been one of those weeks that I really appreciate comfort food, especially when it’s ready in less than five minutes!  Someone clogged my garbage disposal and sink drain with a rubber band and some other gross things.  The drain backed up and started leaking out of my dishwasher into the floor.  That was fun to clean up.  I did fix the clog after taking all of the plumbing drain apart.

My husband called about the time I got all of it apart.  He said that I sounded sad. When I told him I was plumbing he understood.  I think plumbing makes him sad too!

In the fray I must have lost a washer to one of the pipes.  I knew I had some extra plumbing parts and went out to the storage room to look.  I not only found a washer but an unfortunate mess the cat made.  It was one thing after another all day and I had pretty much had it.

I celebrated my plumbing victory by shopping the Kate Spade sample sale and ordered an awesome new purse.  I can’t wait for it to get here!  The other bright spot in the day was this milkshake.  Sometimes life calls for milkshakes and today it called for peach milkshakes.
