Crumb Topped Peach Pie

Crumb Topped Peach Pie

Yummie simple pie to make use of this Summer's abundance of fresh peaches. Got this recipe from an issue of "Taste of Home's Home-Style Recipes".
Thought I would pass it along

1 egg white
1 unbaked pastry shell (9 inches)
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup cold butter or margarine, cut into 6 piecs
6 cups sliced peeled fresh peaches

In a mixing bowl, beat egg white until foamy; brush over the bottom and sides of the pastry shell. In a small bowl, combine flour and sugars; cut in butter until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Sprinkle two-thirds into the bottom of the pastry shell; top with peaches. Sprinkle with remaining crumb mixture. Bake at 375 degrees for 40-45 minutes or until filling is bubbly and peaches are tender.

Summer is Flying By

Well I have not been blogging much lately or been on any of those social networks much either. Lots of things going on this Summer and just keeping busy with life.
My oldest son started band camp and has been real busy with that and my youngest son has been busy being a little boy......fishing and always playing hard as little boys will do!!!
We have been doing really well at our booth at the Craft Mall and very happy about that. The weather has been really nice here and very hot like a lot of this great nation. Been making a lot of trips up to Holmes county in the Amish country which is always a fun time!!!

Some Amish Photos taken along the way!

The Berlin Craft Mall Picnic at Schrocks Amish Farm and Village

The Picnic-lots of good food-Grilled chicken, potatoes, fresh green beans with ham, an awesome salad, home baked pies and fellowship..........and Johnny Schrock playing some bluegrass!

The Goat that I thought liked me???

He really liked my kids better!!!
The very homely llama-That is his 2 bottom teeth sticking up!!! One ear up and one ear down--Poor Guy!!!

The New Booth and the Rotten Weekend :(

Hope you all had a wonderful 4th. I worked the weekend (Fri, Sat and Sun.) and it was far from perfect and it could be erased for all I care. While I was working, my husband and boys moved some of his wooden goods and my old goods to the Berlin Craft Mall on Friday.
I pulled all my old goods out of my booth at the local Antique Mall and now they are here mingled in with his wooden wares.
They did an awesome job decorating it on Friday!

We headed up there again today to bring a few more goods.
We ended up going to Spies Farms Antiques  which is a cool barn filled with antiques, primitives and old furniture. The folks that own it were very nice and they told us that they get most of their items from auctions.  I found out they even have a blogspot..........cool!!!

We ended up buying an old enamel top table for only $37 to use in our booth. 
It is the white one in the pictures below.
Usually when we head to Amish Country, no day is complete without stopping at a local eatery. We had lunch at Dutch Valley Restaurant in Sugarcreek, OH and it was really yummie as usual!

Despite the rotten weekend at work, I did get to enjoy some Fireworks Sunday night with the family and got a few funky pictures! 
It was very nice to spend Sunday night and Monday with my family!
After long days at work it really makes you appreciate coming home to your family !

Have a Nice Week
