Grilled Peaches

This summer has been hot. Hot Hot. And in hot weather, who doesn't like to enjoy some good summer fruit?  We all do. The only thing is, it's hot, and some summer fruits just can't stand the heat, especially in our kitchen (apparently). This last week it was the peaches. So into the fridge they went, hoping to keep them just a little bit longer.

Last week we also decided to grill up some pork chops one night. Using nothing more than a simple pork rub we bought in Hawaii, we had the chops on the BBQ in no time, but had no clue what to serve with them.  Bobby Brady, or was it Peter?, saying "porkchops and applesauce" always runs through my head when I think of what to serve. Not that I wanted to serve apple sauce but I know that something sweet with the savory of the chops always pairs well together.

PEACHES! There were peaches in the fridge turning wrinkly and in need of enjoying. So we cut them up and sprinkled them with just a dash of cinnamon and threw them on the grill. Just a few minutes on either side gives them the perfect taste. The sugar starts to caramelize a bit and the result is delicious, and a great pairing for pork chops!
