Who Says We Can't Eat French Food?


Another late night post. So, again, forgive me if I come off a tad bit incoherent....This meal was devoured on Sunday morning, but I've been too busy to really write until now. I suppose technically I should be writing other "work" related things, but this is more FUN!

On the way up to Musikfest (a local week of drunken music related debauchery - see pic of the girls below) we stopped at a peach stand on the side the road. Unfortunately I don't remember what it was called...maybe someone reading this can put a comment on it. Anyway, they have this wonderful thing they do were they sell a bushel (and I mean giant bushel) of peaches called "ground peaches" for $6. This means that these peaches were picked off the ground instead of being picked out of trees. Whatever, for six bucks, these are the most delicious ripe peaches you have ever had! Besides tasting great, peaches are low in calories and one 100 g peach provides almost three quarters of the daily vitamin C requirement. Peaches are also rich in iron and potassium.

So, with a plethora of peaches in hand, we went about brainstorming our Sunday morning breakfast. Automatically, peach waffles, peach muffins and peach pancakes jumped into the conversation. However, when John suggested that we make crepes with peaches, the brainstorming ceased. Selah was in town from Oman and happens to be an expert crepe maker. So, while she made the crepes I set about making the peach filling and some cheesy scrambled eggs.

I'm not sure of the exact recipe she used, but I'm sure this one from epicurious.com will fit the bill.

To make the peach filling, I combined 1/2 cup of water, 3 cups chopped peaches and 1/4 cup maple syrup. Basically, I just brought it to a boil and cooked it down.

Scrambled eggs + sharp cheddar = WOW!

The fruit stand is called Bechdolt Orchard in Hellertown, PA. Their produce is sooooo good.
