The kids are at home so much more during the summer, and that means I visit the grocery store twice as often trying to keep up with their growing appetites.  Their food of choice at the moment is all of the stone fruits that are in season;  my daughter loves the peaches and nectarines, and my son prefers the plums.  We made this sweet treat with nectarines this week, and it was a big hit.
