I visited a local farm last week, picking up fresh produce, as well as Apple Raspberry cider, apple cider vinegar, and fresh honeycomb! I fed the bounteous chickens grass, and they fell over one another to reach my hand first! One of the fruits I bought was peaches-the juiciest peaches you’ll ever taste. Freshly picked, they sat in that wooden basket, spilling out of the top. They were effulgent, glowing a bright, “peachy” color.
I ran to the basket, examining each peach in all its perfection, and declared my love. “I’ll buy it,” I said defiantly, as I juggled that, and ten other bags of vegetables. The sunlight glowed that day, as I pranced to my house with my bag of fresh produce. I needed to use one of the many items I bought to make a new recipe-a sandwich, as I hadn’t had lunch yet, and was not willing to compromise with the regular bread-slapped-between-two-pieces-of-lettuce sandwich. Out came the bread. Pineapple emerged from the freezer. The world’s best peaches were sliced up. Lastly, cheese to hold it together. Grill it, bake it, broil it-whatever you do, it tasted like I was shipwrecked on a desert island. Which I wouldn’t mind being, if I had these sandwiches wrapped in a picnic basket!

Word of the Day
Ebullient (adj.): extremely lively, enthusiastic (She became ebullient upon receiving an acceptance letter from the college of her choice)
-2 slices whole grain bread
-1/3 cup dairy free mozzarella cheese (non vegans can use regular cheese)
-1/3 cup pineapple, sliced thinly
-1/2 peach, sliced thinly
-2 teaspoons olive oil (or any oil)
-salt, to taste
Heat a skillet on medium heat. When it’s heated, put one teaspoon of oil on the pan. To make the sandwich, sprinkle the cheese on one slice of bread. Layer the pineapples and peaches, overlapping them. Add salt, to taste. Put the other slice of bread on top. Put the sandwich on the skillet, toasting the one side until it”s brown. Put another teaspoon of oil on the pan, and then flip the sandwich so the other slice gets toasted as well. Make sure the cheese is all melted, and take off the skillet. You could bake it in an oven at 400 degrees for a couple minutes, to make it crunchier and more toasted, or eat it warm off the skillet.
