balsamic peaches and strawberries

I made dessert yesterday and it was yummy! It was a variation on my summer standard of grilled balsamic glazed peaches.

I halved 6 peaches and placed in a bag with 12 whole fresh strawberries. To that I added a 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar and 1/4 cup honey. This sat for around 2 hours. After that I fried the peaches cut side down in a little butter and brown sugar until they got nice and brown. I put them in a baking dish cut side up wih a strawberry in the hollow. I deglazed the pan with a little port and poured over the peaches. The rest of the marinade went into the baking dish along with some almonds and cranberries.

When I was ready to finish the dish I baked it uncovered until the marinade started to thicken. Every once in a while I spooned some over the top. For the last ten minutes or so I sprinkled some granola over the top for texture.

I served them warm over a couple of spoons of vanilla yogurt.

I still have 4 peach halves in the fridge *wink*

Stitch -n- Bitch

I was thinking of doing an open drop in sewing day on Sundays at my place. Is anyone interested? We can work on existing projects or try and do something collaborative. I currently have a lot of corset realated sewing to work on as well as a lot of pattern drafting to do. I need to get stuff done so I can't spend all of my time working on other's projects but I can consult if needed :)

I have quite a few machines as well as a full sized cutting table.
