Easy Peach Cobbler

Preheat oven to 350

Step 1 Mix:
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter (room temp)
1 cup self rising flour
1 cup milk

Step 2:
Take 1 or 2 cans (15 oz) peaches strain or pour out most of the peach syrup.

**You can use some of this in your cobbler mix above if desired for a sweeter flavor.**

Step 3
Take a brownie pan, spray it with Pam, pour cobbler mix into the pan, then you can pour the strained peaches directly over your mixture in the baking pan.

**Don't worry about mixing in, as the self rising component should allow the peaches to become covered.**

Wait 30-35 minutes and enjoy! If it doesn't brown give it an extra two minutes on broil!

Not sure if anyone else watches Hoarders, but I love it. I am someone who gets attached to stuff. I collect things thinking solely about my first apartment and what I would want in it versus my first house. Knowing this, I often go through phases where I clean out the clutter (about every two months). I greatly enjoy seeing how other people deal with their addictions and organization strategies.

I will point fingers, I blame my mother. She keeps everything. She picks up brochures at rest stops and brings them home after vks as momentous. I am the same way. I am addicted to post cards from foreign places and love ticket stubs. Never want to forget a trip.

Yesterday, while shopping for an upcoming baby shower, I came across tons of great frames. I splurged on a shadow box frame. I hate spending money on items that are unnecessary. However, I have wanted a shadow box frame for three years! I decided it was time. Could not be happier as I finally can get rid of a shoe box, and can proudly hang my past experiences.

I might purchase a second shadow box for my race bibs/numbers. Getting Crazy!

This upcoming summer/fall I hopefully will collect an "I climbed Mt. Washington" and a 26.2 bumper sticker. All in the five year plan, all in the five yr plan.

jalapeño and pineapple infusion

1. tequila (pronounced: tah-kill-yah)
2. jalapeños (1 and a 1/2)
3. pineapple (1/4 of the porcupine)
4. Agave to sweeten
5. Bottle to infuse in

Cut up ingredients, mix together in bowl, put in bottle, add tequila, cover bottle.

Wait 1-2 weeks for results and a future post on drinks to make with this amazing concoction!
