Peach party

I occasionally quite often lose all sense of reality at Costco and end up filling my cart with random items that just aren't very practical in large quantities (though they are fantastic deals!). In that moment of wholesale insanity, I think it's completely feasible for two people to eat 10 avocados, four loaves of bread, and 24 Greek yogurts before their expiration dates.

My latest impulse (great deal) purchase was a box of a dozen peaches. They were already semi-mushy at the store but that naturally did not stop me. I grabbed the box and started fantasizing about all the recipes I'd make -- one last summer peach hurrah!

Fast forward to today -- one week later -- and those peaches are still sitting on my kitchen counter.

But this time -- unlike the avocados and the breads and the yogurts -- I refuse to let Costco win. This weekend I'm going to throw a peach party* and (for real!) make one of the following (easy?) recipes:

Which recipe do you like?

*I don't know where this peach party nonsense is coming from. I've never had, been to, or even heard of a peach party.


  1. Lovin' the Martha recipe. I might have to give that one a whirl myself...

  2. That's the one I'm leaning towards as well! I'll probably have enough peaches leftover to also do the basil ice cream topping ....

  3. YUM. You should have bellinis, too! Bellinis are the best.

  4. YES!!! Bellinis are phenomenal! And I just found this recipe -- -- So many options!!

  5. You can just start a peach party phenomenon. I had a sangria party of sorts this past weekend and now I just want to try peach sangria. One of my friends kept vowing how she had a recipe for it and it was delicious, but she never showed up with the goods.
