Is your life Peachy? Try this out this Memorial Day!

What could be better to celebrate a long Memorial Day weekend then a delicious peach pie. Hopefully you all are having better weather than we are here in Northwest Montana. I have got cloudy skies with lots of rain, but I'm not worried. Rain just makes for more opportunities for rainbows and nourishing the plants that we just put in the ground.

I am sort of a glass half full kind of chick in case you all haven't noticed. Today, we decided Just Peachy Pie would be the ticket to success here in the west. This is a tremendously easy recipe and is absolutely delicious paired with some vanilla ice cream, or if you live in my house, whipped cream. It was so delicious that my boyfriend ended up each 2 slices and we didn't feel bad about it because it is fruit and is virtually sugar free! You can't go wrong. This is the perfect dessert to bring to a picnic this weekend or enjoy with your family at home.

I hope you all have a wonderful long holiday weekend and please enjoy yourselves and as my mom always says. Be safe, be smart, and have fun!

Just Peachy Pie

2 pounds sliced peaches (they can be frozen)
1/4 cup splenda
1 tablespoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons all spice
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
2 tablespoons whole wheat flour
1 prepared pie crust

Mix the first 6 ingredients in a large bowl and stir to combine and coat the peach slices with the flour and sugar.

Place the prepared pie crust in a pie plate and pour the peach mixture inside.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for 50 minutes.

Mental Health Benefit: Is your life peachy? If it isn't, why not? I think you deserve to be happy and peachy just like the rest of us. You get to decide how happy you are in each moment. Don't you want to choose joy? I know I am choosing joy, love, and a life filled with rainbows. Why don't you join me? The view is pretty beautiful from here! And the peach pie is out of this world! So come on and meet me at the end of the rainbow. I think I may have even found the pot of gold and I'm willing to share!

Here's wishing you rainbows in your kitchen and outside your homes!

This sounds SO good! I haven't made a pie in years...because, well, then I'd have a whole pie sitting around my apartment.

I'm having friends over tomorrow night so maybe that is my opportunity to try!
