    Since we seem to be in de peach mode (sorry. couldn't resist), here is a slightly modified Food Network peach ice cream.

    2 cups half-and-half
    1 cup whipping cream
    1/2 cup sugar
    1/2 cup peach preserves (not jelly)
    1 tsp vanilla
    1 tsp amaretto or 1/2 tsp almond extract
    Pinch kosher salt

    Put everything in a sauce pan and heat to 170° F/80°. Allow to cool, cover tightly, and refrigerate overnight. The next halve four peaches. Sear or grill until well browned, but do not char. Skin should slide off at this point. Chop and add to the chilled cream mix. Freeze in an ice cream freezer.

    An interesting variation is to use plums or even cherries instead of peaches. Avocado also works but you will need to adjust sugar. More if you want sweet. Less or omit sugar for an almost savory effect.

    Seared peach halves are a traditional European dessert. Add sugar if you want, but purists would use fresh herbs, eg thyme, and a dollop of cremé fraiche.

    Bacon-wrapped Filet Mignon with oven roasted Brussels sprouts and a Foster's beer. First time making it at home, was part of a gifted package from Omaha steaks.

    We had veggie burgers with Asian slaw. I made it extra spicy.

    ha! I'm partial to dark chocolate myself. Which the wife, how unfortunate, doesn't like. So, when we get it, I just have to bear the load on my own. I'm a saint, I tell ya, a saint.
