Just Peachy

August 8th, 2011

As it happens, I’m not the only member of the family with a bit of a fresh peach habit.  My son shares my fondness for that particular summer delicacy.  I just had to figure out how to serve it.

Turns out, Buggie boy doesn’t like the skin of fresh peaches.  When I chopped them up for him, he was lukewarm.  When I gave him an entire peach to gnaw on one day, he was ecstatic.  He basically chewed a hole in the peach, then ate the flesh out, discarding the skin.  Smart kid.

All went well until he chomped firmly on the pit and burst into tears.  So now I slice his peaches in half, pit them, then give him the halves to enjoy.  He’s in heaven.
