peaches and onions

yes I know the thought sounds kinda of eewww – but on the grill it’s mighty tasty. Got the recipe from Real Simple magazine.  Dave was interested in this green bean recipe which we didn’t do exactly because we didn’t have any green beans and couldn’t find any but I substituted snap peas for it. At anyrate here is what I did for tonights meals. We had salmon on the grill with peaches and onions in addition to the snap peas.

Peaches and Onions on the Grill.

I took a half of red onion and quartered, 3 peaches sliced. Tossed with a tablespoon of olive oil and seasoning of salt and pepper. We used a grill basket – which we find it just easier when dealing with vegetables. First put the onions on for about 5 minutes or so, then add the peaches for the last 3-4 minutes, tossing occassionally to so that you get an even amount of texturing on all sides.  Remove from grill and serve.

Snap peas with lemony butter.

Steam snap peas till bright green then melt a pat of butter and squeeze a quarter of lemon on top.

Peach Crumble

Tonight’s dinner was a delectable easy combination of summer foods. We had hamburgers from our farmer in Apple Creek, with potato’s fries followed by Peach Crumble — a very simple but tasty dessert. I used peaches from our CSA pick up this week.  I still have some left so maybe next time I’ll make peach granita like a friend suggested.

Peach Crumble
From Family Fun

1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. cinnamon
Pinch of salt
4 tbsp. butter
5 peaches ( to peel I put them in boiling water for a few minutes then ice cold water, which makes them easier to peel)

  1. Make the topping by combining flour, brown sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon and salt in a bowl. Cut in the butter and mix with your fingers until crumbly. Set aside.
  2. Peel and slice peaches. Arrange the slices in a buttered (I used coconut butter) 1-quart baking dish.
  3. Cover with the crumble topping and bake at 450 degrees for 20 minutes. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream or alone cooled at room temperature.

Serves 4
