Stone Fruit Salad with Custard Cream Sauce

Stone Fruit Salad with Custard Cream Sauce.  This fruit salad is loaded up with peaches, nectarines, plums, and cherries.  Drizzled with a creamy and easy to make custard sauce this fruit salad is completely dreamy!

Well hello there again.  I’m back in the kitchen this week after taking some time off for the baby and all.  And working with all this fresh fruit was such a fun, and tasty, way to get back into things.  I mean just look at it.  A huge tray of beautiful fruit.  And let’s face it, this really isn’t a recipe.  It’s basically a non recipe.  The custard sauce is pretty basic.  Basic but amazing.  All in all, this was the perfect way to get back to cooking, or non cooking..I guess..

Stone fruits are in full season right now.  The markets are bursting with cherries and peaches.  And I gotta say, I think it’s my most favorite season ever.  The colors are beautiful.

And I have to admit I always kind of dread the cherries.  Until I eat one.  Then I remember how good they are and I’m ok with the fact that they take a little work to pit and the fact that I always end up with stained fingers.

While a huge bowl of just the fruit is enough to make me happy, the custard sauce really puts this over the top and more into the decadent category.  And I just want to pour this sauce on all the things.  Seriously.  When I started eyeing the broccoli and thinking hmm..maybe..?? I knew I had a problem.

Now if you excuse me, I have some leftover fruit in the fridge that I’m about to go devour.
