You've Got Pears!
Early on Saturday morning as I shopped for our groceries I heard an ad for peas over the loudspeaker at our grocery store. You don't exactly have to convince me to buy pears. I am a fan.
Over the weekend, I made MR some bizarre pear dishes, both of which turned out well.
Sagacious Pears and Zucchini:
About three small or two large zukes, diced
3/4 a big green pear, diced
50 g Quorn of you could use chicken, turkey, or nothing
Lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, cider vinegar
About half a bunch of fresh sage, diced.
Coated the pears in lemon juice, stirred in the other ingredients, heated for two mins in the microwave. He liked it! Yes, it was weird, but it was good.
Curried Pears and Zukes:
a tiny dash of cider vinegar
Mix, steam for two mins. Really good.
You've got pears!

I recently made a pretty good pear thing...I roasted a pear (cut into chunks) and a sweet potato (peeled, also cut into chunks), roast in the oven at 400 degrees (the potato for 60 mins, the pear for 30)...then I pureed them together in the food processor! It comes to a mashed potato like consistency. I served it on a crostini with a layer of goat cheese, but you could eat it plain, or it might be good on tomato slices, or inside a pepper.
