Tuesday Turn About #162 Peachy Keen
We are all warm (and cold) and fuzzy at today’s party! It’s Tuesday Turn About #162 Peachy Keen.
TUESDAY TURN ABOUT #162 PEACHY KEEN
Last week was the end of July, so we celebrated Christmas in July!
Happy August, y’all!
It’s hot, I tell ya… hot, Hot, HOT!
Well, it’s actually not THAT hot here in So Cal… it more humid. (Do I sound like a southerner?)
Well, today’s features are both hot and cold…
Did you get to peruse all the peach recipes from last Tuesday’s Pinterest Challenge? Well, if not, you just might want to go and see all the easy peach recipes that were shared! Seriously easy, and yummy!
But, if that’s not enough for you, today I’m featuring three peach recipes that you are going to love!
Be sure to hop on over to My Family Thyme and Reinvented Delaware to check out SIX additional features from TTA!
If you haven’t been featured at MWA this week, you just may be featured there!
Weekly Household Tip
This past weekend, I cleaned my box fans. They are life-savers (not to mention electricity cost-savers) here in My Wee Abode.
Take a look at your fans and see if they are in need of a quick cleaning. Box fans are easy to clean. Simply unscrew the grates off both sides, place in the shower, spray them down with hot water, then spray them with cleaner, and give them a final rinse. Next, while you are letting the grates dry, take some paper towel and spray cleaner and clean the blades. Be sure to vacuum inside the fan, too!
Screw the grates back on, and you are all set until next summer!
Weekly Blogging Tip
At least week’s party, I suggested you do a brain-dump on your highest ranking post.
After you finish your brain-dump, take 2-5 of your favorite ideas and SEO those topics to death.
For starters, plug-in your topic to Pinterest and see if people are looking for that solution; type the subject into Google and see what auto populates (and don’t forget to scroll down a bit and look at the Google questions). Then use additional SEO tools that are available to you.
After you’ve done some research, take 1-3 of those topics and write posts for them. Remember to link to your original post in all your new ones, as well as link between all the new related subject posts.

Check out our Tuesday Turn About Link Party Pinterest board! All NINE featured posts are pinned to this board each week!
Let’s start sharing! Because this is a party, we encourage all who link up to visit several other bloggers who have linked as well – comments and pins are a great way to spread the love!
Before you get started, take a look at our guidelines:
- This party is for home decor and home-related posts only (recipes, organizing, DIY, crafts, etc.). Link up to 3 related posts. Please do not link up informational posts that do not relate to the topic.
- If you would please not link up shops, advertising, round-ups, other link parties, or any posts promoting sales, we would appreciate it.
- DO NOT PIN FROM IMAGES ON THIS PAGE (it just won’t work right on Pinterest). However, please visit the original post/source and pin from there. That works perfectly!
- Please make sure that your images are in a jpeg or png format. If we can’t save your image, we may not be able to feature you. So sad!

Well, y’all… Fall is in the stores, online and in the emails we are getting from all the decor stores. We are still open to summer posts (I’m trying to get the supplies for a late summer door ‘wreath’), but let’s start bringing on the autumnal love! 😉

Hi Julie! Thank you for hosting the party! Great recipe ideas you have shared! YUM! Have a great week!
Thanks so much, Karin! Hugs!
Your peach desserts look amazing! Thanks so much for having us over, Julie. Stay cool!
Always delighted to see you here, Debra!
Thanks so much Julie! Wow that peach sherbet looks so good, perfect for keeping cool!
Yep… I need me some!
Fruits and berries say ‘summer’ like nothing else! Thanks for hosting!
I couldn’t agree more! Summer fruits are the best part of summer, IMHO!
I’m so happy to know another person who uses box fans for cooling instead of air conditioning. We have them in almost every room of the house. We can use them to bring in the cool night and morning air…better than air conditioning. Thanks for the party.
And SO much less expensive, right? This last week, I left the slider open to the balcony and kept the box fan on all night. I did it for a couple of night, but we are still having a rat issue on our balcony, and there were dropping RIGHT next to the screen… so poison has been ordered, and slider will stay shut until the dropping disappear. >.<
Thanks for hosting Julie! Love these peachy keen recipes! Sorry I didn’t make it to the party last week. I was in bed with a fever after taking care of a sick grand little. Happy to report we’re all better now.
Oh no!!! Are you feeling better? (BTW, grand #6 is making an appearance in March, Lord-willing!)
I don’t know how y’all do it without a/c there. I’d be extremely grouchy and probably buy all the ice for a bath I could get my hands on.
And I am honored to be among the peach recipes today! Thank you for featuring the yumminess. I’m about to make one with Strawberries!
It’s actually comfortable. It’s kind of weird. But, we DO use it when we aren’t comfortable. LOL!
Hi, Julie, Thanks so much for featuring my Peach Clafouiti recipe. It is so good and so easy.
You are so welcome! I had never heard of a clafoutis before, and then I saw one on a food show this week! LOL!(Did you know is was spelled with an ‘s’ on the end??? I just learned that now!)
OOOh – LOVE peaches, so this is perfect! Thanks so much for hosting Julie, and for the tips. Our fans have been getting a workout this year! 🙂 Hope you stay cool down there – Take care!
Yes, our fans, too. I wonder how long my box fans will keep running?
She’s been hot here too. Not southern USA hot, more SoCal hot but for she’s HOT. Thank goodness for our poor man’s air conditioning, a.k.a. ceiling fans, because every single one of them has been going 24/7. I hope the first week of August has been a good one, Julie!
IT was much cooler this last week… like 77… but SO humid! The last couple days we are hitting the low 80s. Still so ‘cool’ for So Cal. And our fans are going all the time, as well! We only turn the AC on when it gets crazy because the fans usually are sufficient for me and my mom. Now my sister, she’s another story. She turns the AC on while she is here with Mom, but that doesn’t bother me. I want her to be comfortable while she is here. 🙂
Thanks for hosting! I was just telling my son that peach ice cream is my favorite in the summer!
Yes… my sister would probably agree with you, Tanya!
Hi Julie! These peach recipes are so tempting. Glad we just stocked up on peaches! Thanks for hosting! Pinned
Ooooo, let me know which ones you try, Sue!
Hi Julie! Great blog tip. I need to do that! Have a great rest of your week!
Thanks, Pam… Love the new profile pic!
