Oh yeah, I said it. ‘Simple’ baked peaches … and if that wasn’t enough … heck, toppin it off with some cashew cream.

There is a special guest visiting Monday for a ‘ladies lunch’ … and I thought I’d do a very lady-like salad with a wonderful end like a sweet fruit for dessert. We’ll see. This isn’t my normal way.

Usually, I’d skip the dessert. But hey, life is too damn short. So there you go.

This is what this week’s menu is looking like so far …
