We’ve had a fun week at the Jordan house, filled with warmth and fuzzy cuddles. Why? because we have been fostering these little rascals…
Top left: Fluffy, Right: Sparkle, Bottom left: Chip.
These little kittens have been so much fun and we are trying to give them plenty of love so they’ll be ready for their next home, which will be around November 9th if everyone gets adopted. You can turn in applications for them now if you live in the Huntsville, Alabama area by going here.
Lots of applications have gone in for Fluffy, but Chip and Sparkle don’t have any on them yet (that I know of) and oh my goodness, what precious babies they are!! Chip is just a little purr monster. He loves to curl up on my husband’s chest and go to sleep, purring the entire time. He charms everyone who picks him up. Sparkle is a striking silver beauty and the only girl of the litter. She is also very affectionate and not nearly as rambunctious as her brothers, a true lady for anyone looking for a sweetheart of a kitten.
Everyone keeps telling us we’ll end up keeping them but actually, we’ve already decided on this little guy (above), who we’ve named Nosey. He’s so funny because these are tee-niney kittens and he stays right in the middle of our dogs like he is one of them. He knows no fear. When he is not pretending he is a puppy, he is up on my desk. Like, all the time. He can’t resist messing around on my keyboard while I’m trying to type.
Anyway, so we are an official foster family and we are loving it!
Note: All kittens have been adopted and we are still enjoying being a foster family to more when the need arises! So now that we have our warm, fuzzy, kitten comfort, lets make some peach cobbler to warm our stomachs as well.
You’ll need: Self Rising Flour, Sugar, Milk, Butter, Peaches, and Cinnamon. Oh mercy, these ingredients look simple but let me tell you, when combined as they are in this recipe they make comfort and happiness!
So seriously, this recipe is so easy that if you make it a few times you probably won’t even need to look at it anymore. So if you want to be a really good student here, I suggest making this cobbler at least once a week until you get the hang of it! Hey, studying is important ;).
- First, we need to melt our butter.
- Since there is no need in dirtying up an extra dish, I just put it in my 8×8 baking dish and place it in the oven while it preheats (to 350).
- Now, place all of your other ingredients (except for the peaches) into a bowl and stir them together real good in the middle row of pictures.
- You want to stir this until smooth or until you get tired of fooling with it. This is one of those old sturdy recipes that my grandmothers used so you don’t have to be finicky. They didn’t abide that kind of nonsense in their kitchens.
- Now that your butter is melted, remove it from the oven and pour your batter on top of it like in the last row of pictures. DON’T STIR. Arrange your peaches on top of that.
- Bake this at 350 of 50-60 minutes or until it is nice and golden brown on top.
That’s it. Just a few steps and some simple ingredients and you have a peach cobbler worthy of Granny’s dinner table – classic comfort in a bowl.
Enjoy! And remember, this is your daily serving of fruit! ~winks~
- Old Fashioned Peach Cobbler
- 29 ounce can peaches in light syrup drained (the big can, it may be 28 oz)
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup self rising flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 stick butter
- teaspoon or two of cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 350. Drain peaches and set aside.
- Melt stick of butter in 8x8 pan (I just stick it in the oven while it is preheating)
- Mix together flour, sugar, and teaspoon cinnamon until blended. Pour in milk and stir until blended again. After butter is melted, take out of oven and pour batter on top of butter, DON'T STIR.
- Use a big spoon and kinda set your peaches down all over the top of the batter, DON'T STIR. They will sink down and it will all be fine. Just distribute them as best you can but don't move them around once you set them down.
- If you want, sprinkle about a tablespoon of sugar and another teaspoon of cinnamon over the top of everything. Sometimes I do this, sometimes I don't.
- Bake for 45-55 minutes, or until it's set in the center and golden.
