I finally made some platz!
The peaches on the back porch were ripening rapidly and needed to be used.
Platz - Peach Platz (I love saying that)
was calling out to me and I've always wanted to try making this.
Of course, the only recipe I needed was Lovella's
and it is a winner!
This recipe was posted 9 years ago, even before I knew about the
Famous Mennonite Girl's Can Cook ladies!!!
I enjoyed reading the comments on this past post.
What a blessing they have been to me on so many levels!
Since my last post on July 13th - SO much has taken place.
|Huge Amish Sale|
|Annual Family Picnic at the Freeman's Pond|
|A few days of camping with dear friends!|
|Sunsets at my favourite Lake Huron!|
A new baby great niece was born - Maia Star (can't wait to meet her)
A new little neighbour was born - Jack (can't wait to meet him)
Vee, a favourite blogger friend has decided to stop blogging.
I understand her need to do this and sometimes it makes me think this might
be what I should consider as well?
And all the while ...... actually since mid-May
I've been fighting a very nasty virus that just keeps rearing it's ugly head
in different ways.
This includes intense congestion, constant coughing fits, pink eye,
loss of smell and taste senses, angry rashes, fever, low energy levels, and weakness.
In one way my wish to slow down the summer days has been fulfilled,
however, not in quite the way I had expected.
After two visits to the emergency dept. and several doctors appointments I
feel like I'm finally seeing some improvement.
I am thankful to be feeling a bit better and am determined to regain my health.
Baking a peach platz today gave me some much needed "baking therapy"
and it feels good to once again be inspired to cook and enjoy eating.
Thank you Lovella for this tried and true recipe, one that I hope to make often!
In the meantime, our little love bug turned Two.
We love her so much ... there are no words!
