Mommy Snack Time with Del Monte Diced Peaches with Cinnamon and Brown Sugar #delmonte #CBias

As a mom, a wife and a blogger free time for just me seems to be a fairy tale! But in the last few months I have made the time to have Mommy Time. I take an hour or so once a week to hang out by myself to enjoy a snack and read one of my favorite magazines. I used to laugh that my mom called the bathroom the library but she was not kidding. It really is the only time you can guilt free close the door and just read lol.

I have always loved to eat peaches. It feels summer like and the color of the fruit cheers me up. Since I am a busy mom having Fruit Cups makes enjoying peaches so much easier. Recently I tried the New Del Monte Diced Peaches with Cinnamon and Brown Sugar. When I went shopping for these it was my day to relax for an hour (sometimes it does not last even that long if my son is cranky) so I decided to make the Peaches my topping for one of my favorite snack treats, ice cream.

 When I got home with the items I needed from my local Walmart and my ingredients for my Mommy Snack I had my husband take my son to the other room for them to play trucks and super heroes. For me part of my Mommy Time is being able to enjoy cooking something for myself without a little one under my feet. 

I first put two cups of my #DelMonte Diced Peaches with Cinnamon and Brown Sugar in my pan along with the light syrup that comes in the cup. I put it on a med-high heat to reduce the syrup and make the peaches golden. Then I scooped up some Vanilla Bean ice cream added my warm sweet peaches, then topped with cool whip and more cinnamon. It smelled so good in the house from warming up the peaches it felt like a perfect fall day!

 One of my favorite activities to enjoy when I am taking Mommy Time is to read my magazine Martha Stewart Living. It my one indulgence for me to have a monthly subscription to the magazine. I love reading it from cover to cover. I even love the ads in it! I find all sorts of recipes, crafts, ideas and products I would like to try. I have enjoyed Martha Stewart since I was a kid reading my moms Martha books. Its even my dogs middle name lol crazy I know right!

Its the little things like reading your favorite magazine while you eat a delicious treat that help re-energize you for the next week of being a mom, wife and blogger.


 And as most Mommy Snack Time I have before I am done eating and reading my magazine I see a sweet little guy in front of me looking up at my treat asking for a bite! He loved the Peaches with Cinnamon and Brown Sugar so I made him a bowl with ice cream, cool whip and a dash of cinnamon, just like mommy had.

I loved the New Diced Peaches with Cinnamon and Brown Sugar I now follow Del Monte Foods on Twitter and liked Del Monte Foods on Facebook. That way I can hear about other new products they come out with and I am hoping great recipe ideas!

Sounds yummy! I planned to make a peach cobbler with the peaches as well but haven't gotten to it yet. Bathroom time isn't even alone time for me. If I do lock the door I get pounding, yelling and crying on the other side. Sigh...
