After a long week of travel, relaxation, eating too much, not running, and chasing a certain 4 year old around an inflatable pool, this Sunday Sweet HAD to be a sort of healthy one. My body craved it. I suppose I could have made a pile of chocolate chip cookie covered rolos with snickers on top, but A: Pinterest already has 043973945687 variations on that recipe, and B: I value my digestive system.
Moving along…(catch my pun?) I decided to make something that tastes delicious, but has a multitude of other benefits as well, but my brain kept screaming “PEACH MELBA”, which is weird, because I don’t think I have ever had peach melba. I knew a drag queen called “Peaches Melba”, but I don’t think she was edible.
After googling recipes for peach melba, I realized it’s just peaches boiled in sugar syrup. WHO NEEDS TO BOIL PEACHES IN SUGAR DURING PEACH SEASON??? No one; that’s who. It’s also served with vanilla ice cream. I get the desire, but that’s a whole lotta sweet, right? I know I mentioned I value my colon, but I also value my teeth, and I already effed those up with gastric bypass surgery and my sleep grinding. (I could grind wheat to flour at night) I do NOT need to add insult to injury.
I scrapped Melba. I turned on my grill. I got out my Chobani. I made my daughter squee with delight, it was that good.
Grilled Peaches Supreme. Millions of Peaches. Peaches for Me.

I halved the peaches. I grilled the peaches. I served them with Chobani 0% plain, mixed with a drop of almond extract, a drizzle of honey, and a sprinkle of cinnamon. I pronounced it awesome. You’re welcome, America. Eat 10,000 grilled peaches. I am already past that, I think. I can’t get enough.
