Aunt Joyce's Peaches and Cream

During my daily phone call with my Mamma (When I was born my cord was just severed not cut all the way. We are very close even with the 8 hour time difference!) She told me about a recipe she got from Aunt Joyce several years ago.  I had just bought a ton of peaches thinking I was going to make jam, so it was perfect timing.  Any who… Yesterday I had my really good friend Fanny over for dinner; I was so excited to get some human interaction and to be able to cook for someone!  Thank God Rikard gets home in a few days, I’m starting to get pathetic with the conversations I have with Stella. 

Nothing says summer better than fresh peaches!
