Pears, Lots of Pears

babypearsWell, I should have known that things always take longer than expected with four little ones under foot. The kitchen is still in chaos, which unfortunately is seeping into the living room. Oh the joys of demolition and painting. It is so worth it though. It’s not by any means a full makeover, there are still plenty of things left to do, but two major things were taken care of and it has made a huge difference. I’m really hoping to have some decent pictures tomorrow, unless of course, life gets in the way. Onto the pears, there was a slight miscommunication the other day when Hubby went to the store. When I write out grocery lists, I usually write the sale price next to the item so that I can make sure they’re charging the right price (which all too often doesn’t happen). Anyway, next to pears, I had written $10 for 10lbs, which is a good price around here. Hubby thought I meant to get 10 pounds. Oops. Not really a problem though as my kiddos descend on fruit like locusts. As soon as they ripen up a tad, I have the most delicious pear custard pie recipe to share with you. I can hardly wait myself, as it is a favourite around here. Back to the grindstone, hope everyone is having a great day.

    I like the sound of a pear custard pie very much indeed!

  2. First — you’re so good to write the sale price on your grocery list — how organized are you!?

    Second — 10 pounds of pears! Wow and good for your kids for eating so much fruit. Quite envious as I have to bribe my 3 yo to eat anything that resembles a fruit or vegetable.

    I swear husbands will read our shopping list and then go rogue when they get to the store. They venture off the list and what comes home in that bag is anyone’s guess. But hey your right, it’s not exactly a problem to have 10lb of pears. There could be worse things to have 10 lbs of right?

    Cornflower, as soon as these babies ripen up I will be sure to make one and post the recipe.

    Suann, organized is one thing I am not, though I am working on it.

    Selena, yes 10lbs of pears is a good thing.

    So glad you guys stopped by.

  5. ooh such a lovely photograph! Are you going to can some pears, they are delicious that way!

  6. Pear and custard pie, yum-yum cant wait, what time do you want me?

    They look so very beautiful in a row – will you keep some just for decoration?! x

  8. Jennifer says:

    Frugal Trenches, I don’t think there will be that many left by the time we eat some plain and bake some into a pie, but maybe next time we get a bunch.

    Sarah, any time you want šŸ™‚

    Emily, the pears I photographed have been deemed baby pears. The bigger kids thought they would be perfect for her as they are so small they can fit in the palm of my hand. They are beautiful to look at though.

    Laura and Ashley- I use a regular blneedr, can’t quite bite the bullet and buy a Vitamix, although I hear they are awesome. I prefer Designer Whey protein powders- great flavors and natural ingredients, love!
