The one question that seems to pop up  a lot this year is “I have SO many of _____ growing in my garden! What do I do with it all?”

If you have too many peaches, you opt for this peaches and cream recipe. It’s delicious! This time of year peaches are plentiful and oatmeal is not a meal that you would think of to make when the weather is over ninety degrees. If you’re like me, you’ve probably also got an abundance of oats left over from those early cold spring days. Pull them out and make up this fabulous recipe for oatmeal! The great thing about this recipe is it is sweet enough to enjoy a bowl for dessert or as a rich and sweet breakfast.

You can make it up the night before in less than ten minutes and stick it in the fridge. It’s the easiest bowl of dinner (or dessert) you will enjoy!

This recipe is part of the Lady Behind the Curtain Dessert Challenge. Each month we are given a few ingredients and are told to come up with a dessert. You can see last month’s challenge here.
