It is the quintessential representation of all that late summertime is to me served up, neatly captured on one plate:
seasonal fresh peach pie from Bannings, Tigard, OR
When a peach is perfect, NOTHING is better in the summer. The challenge is that many peaches usually must be eaten before that perfection is ever found. Standing at the garden hose, bending over with juice trailing down to ones elbow while being enjoyed, connects me to the air that permeates summertime as closely as almost anything else can.
I wish a big slice of amazing fresh peach pie in the flow of the last days of summer for all of you.
