4. movie popcorn
5. poppy seed dressing
6. parasol tables
7. stamps from a machine at the post office
8. dates with your spouse
9. spelling sherbet correctly
10. warm peach crisp

So Slick made Peach Crisp this week and it was SOOOOO good. I love hot peaches with vanilla ice cream. Here's the recipe form Food and Wine July 2008

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
1/2 cup rolled oats
7 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 pounds peaches
1/4 cup cornstarch
Ice cream, for serving (optional)
make the topping: In a food processor, combine the flour, sugars, oats, butter and salt and process until the mixture resembles coarse meal.

make the filling: Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the peaches and blanch for 1 minute to loosen their skins. Transfer the peaches to a large rimmed baking sheet. When cool enough to handle, peel off the skins and cut the peaches into 1/2-inch dice.

Transfer the peaches to a large bowl and sprinkle with the cornstarch. Toss well to coat and let stand for a few minutes.

Preheat the oven to 325°.

Butter and sugar twelve 5-ounce ramekins and arrange them on a large, rimmed baking sheet. Spoon the peaches into the ramekins and sprinkle with the topping.

Bake the crisps for about 1 hour, until the filling is bubbling. Remove the ramekins from the oven and increase the temperature to 400°. Bake the crisps on the upper rack for about 8 minutes, until the topping is browned. Serve warm or at room temperature with ice cream, if desired.

Right- like you won't add ice cream if given the option... seriously...
