Grilled Peach Shortcakes

peaches

When life gives you peaches, you grill ‘em. With some brown sugar on top.

When life gives you unannounced guests, you grill the peaches and stuff ‘em inside a biscuit. With some whipped cream on top.

And as you’re making those peaches, you have to sing, “Last minute guests, what ‘cha gonna do, what ‘cha gonna do when they come for you…”.

I swear on my spatulas, I sang that song the entire time that I was making these.

Why peaches, you ask? ‘Cause I didn’t have any strawberries.

Well, I had some, but that’s baby girl’s snack – can’t go there.

And the grill was already fired up.

I am just glad that I made a couple extras because without them I wouldn’t have a post today.

Or, I would have a post, but without these shortcakes. Not good. These shortcakes really deserve their own post.

ENJOY!
