It was my turn to bring dessert to Bible study! Again.
The email reminder came in my inbox and I couldn't pretend like I didn't see it because I was the one who signed up to bring the "sweet". So, I started racking my brain for an easy idea and I remembered that one day last year, I made a super easy peach cobbler from a recipe that Becky gave me. I couldn't find the written recipe so I made an emergency phone call to Becky to confirm the ingredients. She confirmed ingredients, reviewed the directions and gave me a sweet "don't forget to add the butter" reminder. Becky has what some might call the cooking anointing and I'm quite sure she prayed up a word for me as soon as she hung up the phone.
Anyhoo, I stopped by the Kroger's on my way home and purchased my ingredients...
One large can of peaches
One small can of peaches (drained)
One yellow cake mix
One stick of butter ( Can I get an Amen!)
And I proceeded to follow these directions:
Preheat oven 350 degrees
Dump peaches in 9x13 pan
Dump cake mix over peaches
Melt butter and pour over cake mix
Insert into oven for 30-40 minutes or until bubbly.
Please now allow me to recreate the moment...
I walked into Heather's kitchen with my 9x13 dish as the smell of hot peaches and butter permeated throughout the house. The foil was removed from the dish and a hush fell over the room because it looked exactly like peach cobbler should...hot, peachy and bubbly. You see, I passed the first test...sight and smell. Yeah me!!! The second test would be the test that always makes me a little nervous...the taste test. My chiastic structure lovin' Bible study peeps began scooping out the peach goodness into their styrofoam bowls, along with a dollop of vanilla ice cream. There were lots of mmmm's & ohhhhhs and this is really good. I explained that it was Becky's recipe but that made someone assume that I actually had Becky make the recipe for me. I quickly straightened out that misunderstanding because I wanted the credit for this delicous fruit masterpiece. And then one of my very bestest friends walked into the living room to make this announcement..
There is peach cobbler in here if anyone wants some...
It's shockingly good!
Some might call it shockingly good, but I prefer to call it anointed. Thanks Becky!
