Hello friends. I hope your week is going well. Can you believe that July is almost over? Summer is going extremely fast and I feel like I haven’t done much this year. Partly because the weather has been awful this summer. The heat is unbearable and the extreme amounts of rainfall in the Northeast have put a damper on outdoor activities. I am hoping that August brings back sunny days!
Today, I am happy to share this tasty and pretty summery Grilled Peach Bruschetta with goat cheese, fresh basil and honey…a delicious and sweet appetizer that is perfect for summer entertaining and can be made in minutes!
