Delicious Mommy Time for the Busy Mommy! #CBias #delmonte

It's safe to say I don't have nearly enough me time.  Between working full time and the other chores of life - I frequently get so busy taking care of everything else that I forget to take a few minutes for me.   I get up early every morning.  Very early.  4:15 am to be exact so that I can get a full work day in before picking the kids up at school.

Recently I took a few moments to take some me time and create a delicious snack using the new Del Monte Peaches with Cinnamon & Brown Sugar.  The snack sized Del Monte fruit cups are a staple in our house because they work as a great addition to the kids lunches.  I frequently use the mandarin cups to add to salads when I'm looking to add pizazz and color.  Honestly I hadn't really thought about going beyond that but jumped at the chance to create something new and fun for me.  The Del Monte with Cinnamon & and Brown Sugar sounded like a fantastic combo.  I went back and forth with warming the fruit cup and drizzling over vanilla bean ice cream or creating a pastry.

Not having much fee time in my schedule I knew I wanted to create something I would love but would also be something I could pack up a scaled down version in a small container and send with the boys to school. 

I wasn't really sure what I wanted to do when I headed to Walmart.  Follow along on the trip and baking with pictures and cooking instructions on the Google+ story here. I'd thought about baking them inside croissants for a yummy fruit pocket, warming and drizzling the peaches over vanilla ice cream.  But I found these fantastic puff pastry shells in the freezer section and knew that was perfect.  I filled the puff pasties once they were done cooking with the Del Monte Peaches with Cinnamon and Brown Sugar and re baked for a couple of minutes to warm the peaches. Add a little whipped topping another dash of cinnamon and I felt like I had channeled the inner pastry chef.

After the kids is when I have my "me" time these days.  I've always loved baking and taking time to create a delicious treat is in itself a treat to me!

Once my treat was done I sat down to catch up on some of my favorite tv shows that I don't get to watch when the kids are up.  And the next day I had several left over to warm up and enjoy after sending one in each of the boys lunches.

What do you do for "me" time?

That looks good and so easy. I tried the peaches and thought they were really good too.
