What's for Breakfast??

Around here, when I bake, I do it early in the morning. Living in a metal box small cottage, it gets hot as soon as the sun is up.
I was peeling peaches, getting ready to stick a peach cobbler in the oven when Mr. SS asked, "What's for breakfast?"
I listed everything I could think of that I had the ingredients for, you know the usual...pancakes, waffles, french toast, eggs and ham, oatmeal (one of his favorites in the winter) and of course cold cereal.'
He said, "No thanks, I think I'll skip breakfast this morning." And he headed outside to mow the lawn for my son...yes the whole 1/2 acre front and back...on an empty stomach!!
Awww, that made me feel bad. You have to know me to know, I love cooking for anyone and making them smile at the sight of a big spread of anything, just makes my day.

An hour later, Mr. SS was resting at our little table and chairs in our Secret Garden and I just knew I had to fix him breakfast, but he said nothing sounded good.
About that time, I was taking the cobbler out of the oven and it hit me....Peach Cobbler for breakfast. I knew he wouldn't turn that down.
And he didn't.
I dished him up a big bowl and added a dollup of Cool Whip (If I was Paula Deen, it would have been whipped cream)
After got your fruit, dairy and grains (not to mention sugar) to start your day off right.
Yummy!!! And yes, that is one helping for my yard mowing hubby. How does he stay so skinny?
Later, I called my DIL down from the front house to get some for her and the little ones lunch.
But not to worry. There was plenty left for Mr. SS to have for dessert tonight with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream.

I used Paula Deen's recipe here to make this one, but it is the same as my Grandma's recipe, only Paula uses self rising flour and my Grandma's calls for regular flour, baking soda and salt.
As you can see, I sprinkled a little cinnamon on the top, but sometimes I put it in the batter or sometimes I just add a little almond flavoring.

Oh, forgot to say, our friends Chuck and Cindy gave us a bunch of fresh peaches called Fair Peaches. She says she doesn't know how they know it is fair time in Kern County, but they are always ripe around that time.  They are delicious and I've been slicing them up in my yogurt every morning. YUM!
 Now that's a breakfast!!

God is Good!!
Life is Good!!

Hi Beverly,
Oh my goodness, now I'm graving peach cobbler! I would have peach cobbler for breakfast too, and I would have it for lunch and dinner :) Yummy Yum Yummy I say!. The skirt turned out darling! and your super model is adorable. I think the red boots just make the hole outfits, I need some red boots :)
I'm working on a blue and white quilt for my Mom almost ready to take to the quilters.
Have a sweet day and big hugs, Elizabeth
