Can you tell I have been obsessed with grilling lately. I will pretty much put anything on the grill at this point of the summer, including these peaches!
Growing up, I barely ate any vegetables, have I mentioned that before? It was pretty much carrots or bust. So, I never knew how delicious grilled vegetables could be (I am current imagining baby carrots on the grill, probably wouldn’t work too well). So I am making up for it this summer and eating grilled zucchini, asparagus, and mushrooms pretty much any chance I can get. Also grilled salmon. Not a vegetable, but I would like to eat grilled salmon with veggies every day for the rest of the summer!
But today, I am grilling more than just veggies, I am grilling fruit! Have you had grilled peaches before? They are absolutely delicious, especially topped with ice cream! My mouth is watering just thinking about these warm peaches with vanilla ice cream melting down the sides. What do you think about grilled fruit? Are you a fan? I love grilled peaches, grilled watermelon and grilled pineapple? What’s your favorite fruit to grill? Or are you totally against all of it!
