Gluten Free Glazed Chicken and Peach Skewers Recipe Can someone please tell me when it was that children started going back to school before Labor Day? Is this some sort of government conspiracy to gyp parents out of what could be the better part of summer? As a child I never went to school until the Tuesday after Labor Day weekend. It was the perfect way to ease back into it – four days of school instead of five. Sometimes I wished they would start back even more gradually say one day the first week, two the second and so on. But I would take four over five any day. It was the same for my children when they were in school. We had Labor Day weekend to get all our back to school shopping done and have one last family day off together before the whole process of packing lunches and doing homework started again.The last couple weeks of summer are different than the rest. The frantic rush to have fun is over, the vacation suitcases have been unpacked, we have most likely recovered from (or at least sort of forgotten about) having to mortgage the house and stand in line for hours and hours to enjoy the theme parks and we survived the annual trip to (insert relative of you choice here)’s house. And the big chores are pretty much done as well – all those grand plans for projects have either been accomplished or shelved for the next year and finally, FINALLY we can just take it easy and relax! And then there is the beautiful abundance of late summer fruits and veggies – golden, sweet corn, juicy, red ripe tomatoes, and enough zucchini to feed armies. And peaches! I love, love, love peaches, in any way shape or form. Bring on the homemade peach ice cream, gluten free peach pies and cobblers and for a special treat, throw some on the grill. Something magical happens when you take a piece of that beautiful, iconic summer fruit and apply fire to it. This pretty little gluten-free recipe combines ripe peaches with chunks of chicken thighs and a spicy-sweet sauce made by combining hot pepper sauce with some San-J’s fabulous new Sweet & Tangy Polynesian Glazing & Dipping Sauce. The sauce is used as a marinade before throwing the chicken and peaches on the grill and as a base for a simple salad dressing. Toss with some arugula, toasted almond slices and more peaches and this makes the perfect light meal for these lazy, hazy last days of summer..
