Farewell to the summer intern with chocolate not peaches!

Our one month summer intern was departing so to honor his short but fun time here we got him a confection from, where else, Wegmann's! It was not going to have peaches in it for sure so given his liking of chocolate we went with a chocolate cream pie!   This is something Wegmann's does very well.  The chocolate cream is great the crust is good and it is topped with a generous amount of whipped cream - the real thing.  None of that fake vegetable based whipped topping.  Stick with the basics!

Always a good choice!

Happy it is not peaches!

As much whipped cream as chocolate cream!

Everyone loved it and our honoree had two pieces.  We hope with this he can get by his unpeachy experience and enjoy his vacation in London and Paris for where we await the baguette picture!

For reference!

Too Peachy Peach Crostata

Today, it being summer and peach season, we picked up a peach crostata from Wegmann's market since that is the featured fruit.  They make a number of good ones and so why not got with this one. As in the past the pastry was great, the slivered almonds were a nice touch, the glaze was not too sweet and there was plenty of fruit.

Looks good in the box

Looks better on the plate

Look at all the fruit!

On balance it was enjoyed by all. However we did notice some peaches left on a plate. We asked the person if they were going to finish it but he said no, it was "too peachy"! How could anything be too peachy one might think.  But we attributed it to peachophobia!

Terrified of peaches!
