Contraband

In four weeks, my baby boy will move 1300 miles away, knit 12, purl 4. I’m proud of his college scholarship but at the same time terrified he might feel lonely.
Our family can buy him books and linens; we can send brownies, knit 12, purl 4. But nothing changes the simple fact that I won’t be there if he gets his first D or some dream girl says no to coffee.
I won’t be there if she says yes either, knit 12, purl 4. He’ll Skype but not about those things. He won’t bother me when the food tastes bad or the dorm feels like it’s shrinking.
He’s such a man. Knit I-missed-the-count, pull out that row. He’ll tell me about A’s and the summer internships that fly. He won’t want to worry me.
He’s all grown up, dammit. Smart and independent, but … knit 12, purl 4. I know that little boy’s still in there and I’m sneaking one contraband mom-hug into his dorm room. Nobody will suspect. Shhh.
Fight on USC!

Growing up, and still to this day, one of my very favorite desserts was my Grandma’s ‘Quick and Easy Peach Cobbler’. It’s creamy, full of flavor & super easy! This would pair beautifully with last weeks Homemade Ice Cream. :)


Quick and Easy Peach Cobbler
1/4 cup margarine
2 cup sliced peaches
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup flour
1 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup milk
 
1. Mix peaches with 1/2 cup sugar and set aside.
2. Place margarine in a deep baking dish and set inside a 350 degrees oven to melt.
3. Make a batter with flour, sugar, baking powder and milk. Pour over melted butter. DO NOT STIR.
4. Drop peaches into batter.
5. Bake until crust is lightly browned, approximately 35 minutes. {It makes it’s own sauce and although it may not seem done, it is.}
6. Enjoy!
