Gourmet Cuisine with Meryl Ann

LA COUNTY, CA. July 4th, 2008.


After writing and posting an article about Jefferson, I set about to make myself a solitary celebration of Impeach Cobbler. I was inspired last year by Swami Beyondananda’s recipe for “Impeach Pie,” which looked delicious, but, sheesh, a pie crust? Who has that kind of time? So here’s my easy recipe. It took me 7 minutes, and that includes inventing the recipe, and throwing the dirty dishes in the dishwasher.

 Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

What you need:

A couple cups of oats (not that instant crap, unless you have no other choice. Can I say "crap"?)
Frozen, concentrated, apple or white grape juice. (Optional)
Walnuts, almonds, pecans, other nuts and/or sunflower seeds (Optional)
Cinnamon (Optional. Come to think of it, most of these ingredients are optional.)
Honey or maple syrup
Butter or oil

First I cut up the peaches, into eight wedges, each. You really can’t get away with making them any bigger, and it takes too long to cut them any smaller. So I cut eight.


As I cut them, I toss them into a Corningware casserole dish (whichever one is clean at the moment, I’m not picky. You can grease it first, if you want to.) I don’t peel the skins off, geez, who has time for that? Gone are my days of whipping up six-course gourmet meals for casts of thousands, I just want something yummy to eat while I type.
