Crunchy and Peachy Greek Yogurt
There is something about a good walk that lifts the spirits like nothing else. I am blessed enough--spoiled enough--to have spectacular mountain views and eucalyptus trees lining the residential streets behind my building. I take advantage of these streets almost daily--striking out from the whitewashed walls and stress to be alone and calm my spirit. Which is why on a random afternoon walk at work, I was surprised to see two men in business suits emerge from behind a building, arms laden with peaches.
In my office community in Burbank, odd sites are a rarity--unless you count badly dressed tourists who must take 500 million pics with Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck, or girls with far too many tattoos. I (without dignity) cautiously walked into the wilderness--um, building foliage--where they just came from. Sure enough, there was a peach tree.
Plucking one ripe, fuzzy fruit, I eagerly smelled it to see if it smelled as good as it looked--and I tell you, visions of peach cobbler were dancing in my head. The possibilities were endless.
After going home, I settled for something a little simpler and a heck of a lot quicker--a crunchy Greek yogurt recipe, drizzled with brown sugar with peaches on top. It was a perfect 9 p.m. dinner.
