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.

very smart, we use to freeze canned peaches to eat at lunch when work in Norflok, VA. in the summer. Very hot and they were so good. Still can’t beat fresh off the tree. Great recipe Missy.
