Initially I thought “what a great recipe for this heat wave we are having”, but as it turns out it was the dreariest day of the week. Oh well! My mother thought I was making smoothies for dinner. I guess it was the same idea really. The peaches were blanched so they would peel a little easier, it took about 4 peaches to create the 3 cups. That was the most difficult part of the preparation. Being unorganized we had just this soup for dinner, I really don’t know what I would have added to it to round out the meal. To me, this was perfect for a summer dinner. Reminds me of the times my mom used to fix strawberry shortcakes for dinner when I was little.
