Busy Susie B.: It's 4:00 and I've finished everything I wanted to do in the past four hours (my free four hours off work!). At work I had to clean the whole office, because the Board of Directors is coming next week. Then I ran some errands to Target, the mall and the library; made two more batches of peach cobbler filling (recipe later) to add to the four I made last night; did two loads of laundy; wrapped Ember's present (two Dr. Seuss board books and some Skittles); and reconciled my credit card. I guess I do still need to pack for the weekend.

John, by the way, is adorable. He looked in my closet to get my pantsize to surprise me with a nice pair of khakis for my birthday. I had one pair of size 6 and a pair of size 9, which he assumed was a 6 since the other one was, and why would I have pants of two different sizes. I guess guys buy pants between 32-34 or whatever, so it's weird for me to have pants between 6-11. I also exchanged this cute pair of jeans Leonard, Sumana and Rachel picked out for me, for a smaller size that is not as tight! Weird. Now I have two new pairs of pants, and it's not even my birthday yet! Thanks everyone!

Famous Peach Cobbler: This is another recipe from the super-cool recipe collection Mom made all of us for Christmas last year.

For biscuit topper, sift together 1 c. sifted flour, 2 T sugar, 1 1/2 t. baking powder and 1/4 t. salt. cut in 1/4 cup butter till mixture resembles coarse crumbs. combine 1/4 c. milke and 1 slightly beaten egg. Add all at once to dry ingredients, stirring just to moisten. Set aside. Prepare filling. Pour filling into baking dish. Immediately spoon on biscuit topper in 6 mounds. Bake at 400 for 20-25 minutes. Serve warm with cream or ice cream. Makes six servings.

Peach filling: Combine 1 1/2 T. cornstarch, 1/4 t, ground mace, 1/2 c. brown sugar and 1/2 c. water in sauce pan. cook and stir till thickened. Add 4 c. sliced peaches, 1 T. lemon juice, and 1 T. butter. cook till peaches are hot, about 5 minutes.

I just realized I forgot to add the lemon juice and butter to the last two batches. Oh well! I am putting them all in the freezer and giving four to my in-laws with the biscuit instructions written on the bag.
