I've been extremely blessed this year to have friends and family offer me free produce. One of my friends used Facebook to invite people over to take pears off her hands. Well a tightwad never turns her back on free food. But what do you do when you get pounds upon pounds of free pears? I used them to create pie filling and pear butter - good for gifting to neighbors. Not to mention free food, I also like to think the pears provided an afternoon of family bonding as I had my husband do the peeling and I did the slicing. A good date is one where you can talk and really become closer, so I like to believe that working together qualifies as a good date. I'm not sure how he felt about it, but since he's not into movies anyway, and he's probably cheaper than I am, I think he would have agreed!
And just so you know, as I was looking through allrecipes' site I found a ton of other pear related baked goods I wanted to try. I did freeze some plain sliced pears in their own bag, and maybe someday soon, when I'm not feeling so peared-out I'll bust it open and make some pear bread.
