This past weekend I celebrated my 50th birthday!

I know. I know.

As my dad use to say….


BTW-for those of you who aren’t familiar, that’s Norwegian for ‘HOLY COW you’re a half a century old!’

Of course, I’m not the only one in my family who reached a milestone birthday.

My niece and I share our date of birth-and she celebrated 13 years on Saturday!  And soon my nephew will be turning the grand old age of 16! (I still can’t believe this!)

Our family will all be getting together later this month to celebrate-but my sweet-thoughtful hubby(I LOVE you, honey) wasn’t about to wait that long!

He pulled out all the stops on Saturday, and filled the day with all my favorite things!

First, we had breakfast at a quaint cafe with the YUMMIEST ham and cheese omelets! Then it was off for a scenic drive to one of my favorite ‘hot spots’ for antiques! 

We also stopped at several estate sales and yard sales along the way, and although I didn’t find many treasures-we met so many kind folks along the way-and the afternoon was filled with much fun and laughter!

Later that evening, we got all dressed up and headed into the city for a romantic-candlelight dinner at our favorite restaurant! 

Afterwards, we were SO stuffed(their prime rib is to die for) that we decided to take a walk on the water front. It was glorious to see all the boats-big and small-all lit up for an evening cruise on the river.

So how did we end this absolutely PERFECT day?

Well, we sat on our front porch-with coffee and a piece of this SCRUMPTIOUS peach cobbler that I made the day before!

It really doesn’t get any better than that, folks! 

And the recipe for this oh so yummy peach cobbler-couldn’t be more simple!

Everything you need is already in your pantry.  Well, except for the peaches.

I was lucky to find an entire crate of Alberta peaches at our local market last week!  They were a bit spendy ($17.99) but well worth it! I was able to make a batch of peach jam, three pies (I froze them) two cobblers (one for mom), and froze the rest for a special treat this winter!

 Of course, you can use canned peaches for this recipe too-but this is one of those desserts where fresh is SO much better.
