Last week a friend shared a few pears with us from his family’s farm … and by a few, I actually mean millions of pears.
Okay, not millions, but a lot of pears. We’ve enjoyed peeling and dicing them and eating them for snacks, but I didn’t have many recipes on hand for pears. So Lee did some digging online and unearthed a few fun ones.
Tonight for dinner: Pear and Prosciutto Pizza. I wouldn’t have thought to put these ingredients together, but it was a good combination of salty and sweet. Even Camille enjoyed this non-traditional dish!
Dessert: Pear and Blueberry Cake. I really enjoyed making this one, partly because the batter was so pretty. Should I even care what the batter looks like? I mean, I’m the only one who even sees it. But it was a lovely almond color with cinnamon bits speckled throughout. The finished product was good, although Lee and I both agreed it could’ve been a little sweeter. If I make it again, I think I’ll toy with the ingredients a little. Camille liked it though, and didn’t even want to use her fork. It’s much easier to shovel it in by hand!
