Cooking ideas

Night 1: Vietnamese sweet potato and shrimp cakes would be delicious with this peach relish
Night 2: Tomato pie
Night 3: Summer peach cake
Night 4: Watermelon wedge salad with feta, mint and almonds
Night 5: Sweet potato home fries with eggs
Night 6: I’d like to try this recipe for stuffed chicken breasts with smashed fresh raspberries instead of the jam the recipe calls for.
Night 7: Make this peach-berry sangria with raspberries instead of strawberries. Serve with Peach, prosciutto and ricotta crostini and you’ve got a pretty sophisticated happy hour!
