One Worth Sharing ...

A couple of weekends ago, we went to the used book sale at the library. After having a long conversation with one of the ladies who works there, she managed to talk me into joining the "Friends of the Library" and helping them with the new cookbook next Fall. I told her that if all was well with my mother and my son, I'd be thrilled to help. I didn't mention that I'm also starting back to school next Fall. Well, I'm taking some refresher courses, actually. Business and Accounting. Yuck! I may take another creative writing class just to have something fun to look forward to. As usual, my plate for next fall is piling up. You'd think I'd stop doing that, wouldn't you?  By Thanksgiving, I'll be complaining about how busy I am.

Anyway, enjoy the dessert!
 
This one is a re-post from a long time ago. It's very tasty and very quick/simple.
 
Peach Dessert
 
You will need the following ...
 
* a 9X13 baking dish
* a stick of butter    (I didn't say this was going to be low-fat)
* 1-cup of self rising flour
* 1-cup of sugar
* 1-half cup of milk
* 1-tsp. almond flavoring
* 1-large can of sliced peaches (do not drain)
 
Preheat oven to 350. While oven is preheating, add butter to the baking dish; let butter melt in oven. Careful not to burn the butter.
 
While the butter is melting, stir the flour, sugar, milk and flavoring together in a bowl.  Remove the dish of melted butter from oven and add the batter. Give it a little shake to spread the batter and butter evenly. Pour the can of peaches evenly over the top of the batter. Bake till golden-brown and bubbly on top. The batter will rise above the peaches during baking process.
 
Serve with vanilla ice-cream.
 
Note: Use fresh peaches when in season. I peel and slice them before hand and add enough sugar to sweeten them. If you refrigerate overnight, they'll make very sweet syrup. ~ YUM!
