Before I share this Strawberry Nectarine Crumble with you I want to share about my weekend. I went to the most amazing conference this week. She Speaks is put on by Proverbs 31 ministries and equips writers, speakers and women in ministry. Ann Voskamp was the keynote speaker on Saturday night and talked about One Thousand Gifts, her New York Times bestseller. Both her writing and speaking are beautiful. It was a reminder to stop and be thankful no matter what are circumstances are; to find the beauty in the simplicity of our days. She dares us to live our one life well.
In the midst of hot summer days we have a bounty of fruit to be thankful for and share with those we love. A few weeks back I was house sitting for my brother and invited a few friends to join me for a barbecue. It was a beautiful night so we ate outside, lingering in the warmth of the summer evening. These are some of my dearest friends and I am always so thankful for friends to share life with. We ended the evening with a Strawberry Nectarine Crumble made with fruit from the local farmers market. I served it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Don’t forget that this Sunday Adventures In The Kitchen makes its radio debut on KKLA at 4 pm. If you are in the Southern California area I hope you will tune in and share with your friends. Tuesday I am launching a giveaway to celebrate. See you then!
