If you haven’t realized it yet, we are CRAZY for peaches!! They are Ludmilla’s favorite fruit so….the first time we saw them she wanted to get some and get busy with cooking them!! For me especially, (Marilyn), I’m not used to having fruit all year ’round like they have in Brazil, so I’m as crazy as Ludmilla is when summer arrives and we have all of these amazing fruits available to us! Well, now they are in full season here in Washington so we are going even crazier with what we have!!! So….since it’s been so hot here in Seattle we decided to make another peach soup. If you’ve been following our blog (if not, you should! :)), we did a peach soup last year which was delicious, but a little time consuming. This recipe is super easy, fast and no cooking involved! Perfect for this summer heat!! We topped this soup with goat cheese and prosciutto wrapped peaches…OMG…it was sooooo good! Hope you enjoy it as much as we did! Happy Summer everyone!!!
