My parents have the most gorgeous backyard. They have a veggie garden and fruit trees and my mom's green thumb keeps flowers blooming all summer long. With the great weather we've been having, the entire garden is a lush jungle-esque escape that makes me look forward to having a garden of my own some day, even if I struggle with keeping a basil plant alive for more than a month.
One of my favorite trees in the yard is the peach tree which is completely covered in fruit ripe for the picking. I like to just eat peaches of course, but when you have an abundance, you have to find other ways to enjoy them. I think my absolute favorite way is in a yogurt parfait.
Cut up peaches.
Cover with plain or vanilla greek yogurt.
Toss in some walnuts.
Top with chia seeds.
I like to re-use Bonne Maman jam jars for this because they are the perfect size. I make it in the morning and eat it when I reach my desk at work...it has become a routine, daily thing...so I'm not sure what I will do when peaches are no longer in season...move on to pears, then apples I think.
Speaking of apples, is anyone else as ready for fall as I am? For some crazy reason, this year I am completely excited about the season changing. Bring on the boots and sweaters and the crisp fall air...I'm ready.
