I stopped by the farm stand over the weekend and bought a basket of peaches. The aroma was summery
and they were so juicy, I had to stand over the kitchen sink to eat them. Just delicious. Grocery store peaches can never taste like a fresh peach off the tree. Besides just eating them and cobbler, what else can you do with peaches? This summer salsa is great on the tacos, but it’s also delish on fish. So tacos one night and grilled salmon the next… you’re going to love this one!
