The peaches are still in season here in NYC. dievca bought 5 lbs of Organic Yellow Peaches and 3 lbs of local NJ Yellow Peaches. she knows they are good because they were a staple of her diet, last week, and they still looked good/smelled good at Whole Foods this morning.
A crumble is a baked dish of fresh fruit (apples, berries, plums, etc.) that is topped with an oat-based streusel.
To celebrate her birthday, dievca is going to bake a Peach Crumble with her wonderful peaches.
She will be sharing with Master and friends.
dievca would love to share her crumble with you in person, but has to offer the recipe instead. she would like to make the suggestion that you visit your favorite grocer and see if your area has the fabulous peaches, available. Crumble or no crumble – they are worth it.
Peach Crumble Recipe
Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 45 minutes Total Time: 55 minutes
Ingredients for the Filling:
2 1/2 lbs peaches (8 medium), fresh or frozen*
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice, (omit if using frozen fruit)
¼ cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
Ingredients for the Topping:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
1/8 tsp sea salt
8 Tbsp 1 stick cold, unsalted butter, diced
½ cup old fashioned rolled oats or quick-cooking oats
1 cup sliced almonds, divided
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a 9×12 casserole baking dish.
To Blanch Peaches: Place peaches in boiling hot water for one minute or just until skins come off easily then transfer immediately to cold water. Peel, pit and slice into 1/2″ thick pieces. Transfer to a large bowl and toss peaches with 2 Tbsp lemon juice.
In a small bowl, whisk together 1/4 cup sugar, 1/4 cup flour and toss with the sliced fruit just until evenly coated. Pour into buttered baking dish.
Combine 1 cup flour, 1/4 cup granulated sugar, 1/3 cup brown sugar, and 1/8 tsp (pinch) of salt. Add the diced cold butter about the size of peas.
Transfer mixture to a bowl, add 1/2 cup oatmeal and use your hands to make large crumbles. Add ½ cup of the sliced almonds and mix to combine.
Spread the topping evenly over the fruit and sprinkle the top with ½ cup of almonds. Bake 45 minutes at 350˚F or until top is golden and the fruit is bubbling at the edges.
*If using frozen fruit, fully thaw, drain and dab with paper towels to remove excess juice.
**If you don’t have a food processor, you can use a whisk for the dry ingredients and a pastry blender/cutter to cut the butter into the dry ingredients.

Master has a check-up scheduled,
do you think this is how the conversation will go?

“People who believe prettiness equals beauty do not understand beauty,” she continued. “Pretty is easy on the eyes, partly because it’s a little bland, inoffensive. It’s easy to take in and easy to forget. Not so beauty. Beauty can be sharp. It can wound you and leave a scar. To perceive beauty you have to be able to SEE.”
“This is why I believe we get more beautiful with age,” she added. “We have earned our beauty, we understand what it is, and we can see it so much better. There is no such thing as ugly and old. Only shortsighted and ignorant.” — Paulina Porizkova
dievca’s WaterWorks class is leaning towards geriatric… she looks at the participants and sees her future. The Ladies? Amazing. Some in their 60’s and 70’s, a couple in their 80’s — they are moving and absolutely beautiful, plus (even better) kind. They ask about dievca’s knee, her work, talk to her about their lives. They are engaged in the World. All in Swimsuits.
And none of the class looks like this:
RickARoo777 is a moron. Paulina is looking amazing and, yes, better than her younger self because she has lived.
Customer Service – a dievca’s unreasonable expectations….
dievca has been in PT for the past 2 months for her knee. It has been going well. She has been “on time”, has not missed an appointment, has not rescheduled an appointment and does her prescribed work.
The Physical Therapist schedules out the Month and this month dievca’s appointments shifted from M and Th to M and F. No problem.
dievca arrived yesterday did her session with the Physical Therapist then had to stop at the front desk because there was a problem with her credit card for the co-pay. Throughout the 1.25 hours no one mentioned that they were canceling her scheduled Friday appointments. She had a Voicemail to that effect that she received in the taxi after the session. So, she called back in to determine what the problem was:
- The Physical Therapist is no longer coming in on Fridays
- The Thursday timeframe where dievca was normally scheduled is blocked out
- The only open time is on Weds Noon which dievca cannot make
- The scheduler made it seem like it was dievca’s fault she had to be put on a “waitlist”
dievca may be wrong but she feels:
- These are things that should have been dealt with Face-to- Face. dievca was there at the office.
- The larger schedule change (losing Fridays) should have started in October, not the middle of the current month.
- If that couldn’t happen all appointments should have been rescheduled immediately when the changes occurred – not as a last minute reaction.
- The customer (dievca) should not be made to feel that it was her fault that the schedule changed and then be told “well, you just have to go on the waitlist”.
Yes, dievca understands that schedules change. Yes, dievca understands that she is just another “number” and they obviously have enough “numbers’ to be flippant.
An “I’m Sorry” or an acknowledgement of poor scheduling would go a long way to making the irritation more palatable. If you expect your clients to show up and be on time, you have to be consistent in return.
dievca suspects this will bite them in the a** at some point because she cannot be the only person who is irritated and she is sure that this has happened a number of times.
You know – customer service is really important.
An aside: other places with terrible customer service Adidas, the RealReal and 1stDibs. Places with GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE – PayPal, Discover, Garnet Hill, MyTheresa

So Master dropped His dievca a note:
Master laughs at His dievca’s music – she’s mentioned this previously.
she doesn’t understand why…
Who doesn’t like Cheesy Love Songs, 70’s Suave Grooves, 80’s Electronica, Classic Rock, Eurotrash?
Music should be — uhhh — accessible.
It’s the First Day of School here in NYC.
