Thinking Out Loud

I found a recipe for peach short bread a few days back while dropping EC. The picture look enticing and I told DH about it. Then over the weekend we passed a farmers market who sells peaches and DH asked if I wanted some. I told him, "if you will eat some peach short bread sure we can buy some."

He said, "yuck! I can't believe people actually eat it, why ruined a perfectly bad for you short bread and add something good, it ruins the whole purpose of bad food (or the other way around)." Well, he got a point you know. In my case why add something bad for perfectly good food? What exactly the point of all of this? To keep it balance? I don't know, but I like to try something different once in a while, and only once.

I don not understand it either cooking meat you with fruit. With vegetables I don't have any problem, but fruit...why? Maybe someone can explain it to me...:))

I think most of the time, for me, it's adding natural sweetness to the dish. If your taste buds love sugar and you just can not have it, adding a fruit can give the flavor with out the refine sugars.
Also I think in added the fruit to shortbread as you stated, that might give one the excuse to eat it,lol. Although I agree... why add it to the short bread, just add it to the top with whipped cream and enjoy a dessert worth the calories and Fat. After all it isn't like I would do that every day or month, just once in a while,lol.
