Simple, delicious Peaches & Cream Kabobs! This fun dessert combines fresh peaches, pound cake, whipped cream, and a drizzle of honey for a sweet treat that screams summer!
There's a church festival going on this weekend, and guess who's NOT going to be there? That's right....us!! It's not nearly as rebellious as it sounds....it's not even our church, for goodness sake. But from the moans and groans of my children, you'd think we were skipping their birthdays!
According to them, everyone is going to be there. As in ALL their classmates and ALL their friends. I have my doubts, for sure.....but the truth is, even if all their friends and all their classmates are going to be there, we won't! I have zero interest in this church festival, or any church festival, for that matter.....
I don't mean to sound like a grinch. And I really have nothing against church festivals. It's more that I'm anti-festival in general. They're crowded, they're noisy, and they're expensive! $3.00 per kid per ride? Maybe more? No, thank you. $4.00 for something to drink? No, thank you! $8.00 for a plate of cheese fries? I'm sounding super cheap, aren't I.....??
Anyway, my kids are disappointed and I'm feeling kinda guilty. Little do they know this is the start of a whole summer of me saying no to festivals! I like to think all they're really interested in is the chance to eat food on a stick. (That's one thing festivals are good for, no doubt.) So I decided to make my own food on a stick. To make them feel better about what they're missing....the festival....which is clearly nowhere near as fun as these yummy Peaches & Cream Kabobs! And definitely not as delicious. Sorry about the festival(s), girls. Not at all sorry about these kabobs, though!
