Addiction LXXVIII

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

A big storm came through on Friday and blew down a part of the back fence. Landlord had better not try to say it's our problem.

Just made a sour mix of pineapple, lemon, and lime juices and sugar. Because a pineapple margarita will hit the spot with that steak, I think.

WhyFi made homemade Orgeat on Friday and it seemed a shame to waste the ground almonds that I made the syrup from. So. Found the last of the peaches I froze last year after I went peach picking. To make a peach and almond galette. I’ll have to kind of wing it, since I don’t have a recipe.
Ate at my in laws tonight. We had traditional Neapolitan Ragu ziti followed by homemade meat balls, and chunks of beef that cook in the tomato sauce over night. All of the was followed by parmigiana. I’m stuffed.

Yes, that is a thing.
I had a smoothie and two hard boiled eggs for dinner. Exciting!! And peanut butter crackers for dessert.

The peach galette came out good

I layered it thusly: crust- sweetened ground almonds leftover from making the orgeat- then peaches.

I used peaches, sugar, almond extract and a dash of cloves in the filling. Meant to add some apricot liqueur but I forgot.

Cooked the extra sweetened ground almonds on the baking sheet alongside the galette.

Topped it with whipped cream and baked almond crumbles.

I could probably build it in 20 minutes, but I suspect it'll take me a little longer for this one.

I rarely eat desserts, but that looks fabulous.

But not nearly as much as 11 . . . I keep waiting for that number to pay off.
