Thoughts on a Friday Night

Tomorrow is the half marathon which Doug decided 2 days ago to run the half instead of the 5K!! How dumb awesome is that!?

So because we're getting up super early it just seemed like a good night to stay in. We made homemade pizza and I baked peaches with amaretti stuffing for dessert. It was a great way to finish up the peaches I bought last week from the Farmer's Market.

Sound good to you? It was delicious. Here's the super easy recipe, I found it from

4 ripe peaches
juice 1/2 lemon
2/3 cup crushed amaretti cookies (I used almond biscotti)
2 Tb marsala or brandy
2 Tb butter at room temperature
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 Tb sugar
1 egg yolk

Preheat the oven to 350. Cut the peaches in half and remove pits. Do not peel the peaches. Take a small spoon and scoop out a bit of the flesh to enlarge the hollow. Place peaches in a shallow baking dish, cut sides up. Sprinkle with lemon juice.

Place crushed cookies into a bowl and stir in the brandy or marsala (I used brandy). Let this mix sit for a few minutes to soften slightly. Add the remaining ingredients and stir to combine.

Spoon the cookie mixture into each of the peach halves, mounding it up as needed. Yum!

While we ate, Doug and I caught up on our shows from the week. Modern Family was okay, and Glee was fabulous! I am sooo looking forward to this season! If you haven't seen it yet (or ever) watch this: (you might need to turn your speakers up a little):

Keep your fingers crossed that it doesn't rain on us in the morning!
