Lemonade, Soccer & Cobbler

Precious Pretty #1 kicked off her summer before she starts Kindergarten with her Grammy in WF.  Kate attended the MSU Soccer Camp with her friends, and had THE BEST TIME!  There were girls there at the camp that she hadn't seen in a long time and she was just thrilled to be there.  
See!  Told ya she was a happy pretty.

With the other pretties in her soccer camp.

With Coach Katy.  Katy goes to our church back home, and it has been an absolute joy watching her grow up.  She just graduated from high school and will be playing soccer for Midwestern State!

When I arrived at WF on Thursday, I was informed by Pretty #1that Grammy told her that she could have a Lemonade Stand after camp.  She decided that it needed to be a Lemonade Sale since they were selling lemonade.  One of her best friends joined her and they had the best time.  What we thought would have been a 30 minute Lemonade "Sale" turned into a three hour successful afternoon!

After a whirlwind weekend in WF we headed to Southlake for our niece's birthday party and nephew's soccer game.   I was able to hit up Central Market on the way home to get groceries and was in produce bliss!  If I only would have remembered to purchase peaches for this lovely cobbler!  I baked this Memorial Day weekend and it was just the perfect end to our cookout!  I got the recipe from the Junior League of Nashville's cookbook, Notably Nashville.

Old Fashioned Peach Cobbler
1 stick of butter (1/2 cup)
4 cups of peeled & sliced peaches
1/2 cup sugar

3/4 cup flour
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Melt the butter in a 9x13-inch baking dish while the oven is heating.
Combine peaches and 1/2 cup of sugar in a bowl and toss to mix well.

Combine the flour, baking powder, salt & 1 cup sugar in a mixing bowl. Add the milk & mix until smooth.  Pull baking dish out of the oven  and spoon batter evenly into the baking dish, but do not stir.  Spoon the peaches over the batter, but do not stir.

Bake at 350 until the topping is light brown: the peaches will sink to the bottom.  (Mine was in the over for about 45-50 minutes)
Serve warm or room temperature with ice cream or whipped cream.
