Summer's Best

A feast for the eyes I found at our local city center market. The peaches taste like peaches. We've already eaten the long, slim quarter-sized eggplant sauteed with a summer squash and one shapely red peper. Yum. Today I'm cooking purple-hulled peas with okra.

I'm learning tricks about cooking in castiron skillets on top of the stove. It's so hot here, we don't need more heat in the kitchen. I did not know I could make cornbread on top, if I cover the skillet and turn the burner on low. I'll let you know how it is. I might have had a decent peach cobbler this way, too. Instead, it was crispy on the sides and the dough was undone. We're just eating the peaches as is. They're quite fine naked.
