Grilled Peaches and Balsamic Syrup
I think we all love balsamic. Love it, love it, love it. Especially when it is reduced to a syrup. I swear I could lick the plate and moan when I eat this stuff, even in public, but I restrain myself because I am after all, a lady. Most of the time anyway.
Another item I recieved in my "Paying It Forward" gift from Dana at Vanilla Basil was Blaze Balsamic Syrup. I am still licking the stickiness off my lips as I write this. Just look at that photo above, thick, luscious, yummy, wonderful syrup. Mmm. I had ideas for it but decided to go online and see what was suggested. I am a genius. I wanted peaches. They suggested peaches. I wanted ice cream. They didn't mention it. Fools.
Peaches are just about done for the summer. Augh. Apples and pears and bananas are winter. I hate winter. I want strawberries in winter, and watermelon. And sunshine. And no clothes. Oh sorry, that is a different blog.
Back to peaches. I decided on vanilla ice cream to go with it, even though I hate vanilla anything unless it has a reason for existence, like chocolate and rasberry and coconut sundae or blackberry pie. Oh and Dana at Vanilla Basil I like her.
GRILLED PEACHES WITH VANILLA AND BALSAMIC

1 small scoop vanilla ice cream
1-2 T balsamic syrup (I actually went for 3)
Grill the peaches until carmelized.
1 scoop on top.
Drizzle, drizzle, drizzle.
Lick plate when done.
Also, Leslie at The Hungry Housewife won the Paying It Forward prize and will be passing it on. Check her blog out and watch for it, perhaps you will be next.
