    jdouglas - here's a funky Watermelon Gazpacho recipe that I double dare you to try since you have so much watermelon to eat! :-)

    Pork tenderloin with herbes de provence on the grill, smashed red potatoes, and a bit of leftover baked cauliflower with breadcrumbs and parm supplemented with a few wedges of yellow squash.

    Watermelon for dessert, again, for the foreseeable future. ;)

    Carrot & Leek Soup that I made from leftover carrots and froze back in March and farm stand tomato & cheese bread.

    Another great way to do peaches for dessert is grilled peaches. I tried it a few weeks ago and they were delicious! Cut the peach in half, remove the pit, heat the grill, lay peach halves cut side down for 5 minutes then flip for another 5 minutes. We drizzled a little honey on them while they were still warm and it tasted great!

    Yes to whipped cream on baked peaches!

    Thanks for the pot pie info. I know my husband would love it. Must put that on the menu very soon.

    Oh and you could put a little whipped cream on it, but I like it without.

  • scoutmomof2 Aug 8, 2013

    350 for about 20 minutes and they are really good.

    Scout, what temperature do you bake the peaches? They sound delicious.

  • scoutmomof2 Aug 8, 2013

    Should be bake until tender.
