So, we have a peach issue around here. Not only do we like to eat them. We like to throw them. (And by ‘we,’ I mean Cuatro.)

(See video evidence here.)

It’s not my fault that they look exactly like tennis balls…and that they beg to be thrown, when you are an 18 month old.

A few weeks ago, I kept hearing thud. Thud. THUD. {giggle from an older kid} More thuds. Thuds. THUDS. {full blown laughter}

I was in the kitchen working on something and came around the corner into the dining room (at that time, it was the staging area for our July 4th Ranch Weekend Getaway!)…video on Instagram.

Last summer I would get 1 case of peaches from Costco and it was the perfect amount for us to get through in a few days before they would go bad. This summer, my boys have declared that peaches are all of their favorite food and that they don’t want to eat any other fruit besides peaches. (We can go through 1 case/tray in 24 hours.) So now I buy 3 cases at a time…eat most of them, cook with some.

This is why you are getting 2 peach recipes in one week. Monday, I shared the Peaches & Cream Baked Oatmeal (which Tyler declared delicious and requested it for his birthday breakfast). And now this slow cooker oatmeal. And I’m happy to report that we have finished off the 3rd case/tray. And we all might have overdosed on Vitamin C & Potassium.

Now, if you’ll excuse me…I need to offer a few different fruits to the boys besides peaches…

P.S. This stuff is ridiculously delicious. It’s the brown sugar-ginger-peach combination, also known as a party on your taste buds.

I immediately noticed the brown sugar in the image, but ginger I did not. This sounds so great, I will definitely have to try.

1/2 Cup of brown sugar sounds like a lot with only 1 cup of Oatmeal. Are you sure it is not 1/4 C?

Helen – this makes 4 servings of oatmeal, so it would only be 1/8 of a cup per serving.
