Pears, pears and more pears, a classic casual fall outfit, J. Crew home and more on Weekend Meanderings.
Good morning friends! Happy weekend meanderings to you, I am excited to be joining Kim and Juliet this weekend for our weekly series.
It has been heartbreaking to watch hurricane Ian completely decimate parts of Florida and with it, homes and lives. Millions of people have been affected by this devastating storm. If you would like to help you can make donations to the the organization of your choice. Here are a few that I donate to:
Here in NC, we only experienced a tropical storm with a day of winds, lots of rain and intermittent power outages. We woke up this morning to a yard littered with what seems like 5000 pinecones and tons of fallen branches. Thank God that is all we have to deal with.
I have lots of things to share today on weekend meanderings, so let’s get to it.
Pears, pears and more pears
Autumn brings with it a host of seasonal fruits and vegetables, some of my favorites are apples, cranberries, pomegranates, figs and pears. I frequently bake with apples and cranberries but this years I am trying to branch out( no pun intended) and use more pears. After sharing a delicious pear salad on the blog yesterday I decided to see if I could find some more recipes using pears that we all might enjoy. Here is what I found.
Move over caramel apples and welcome caramel dipped pears!
How sweet are these little pear tarts?
I cannot wait to make this grilled cheese bagel breakfast sandwich with sliced apple, pear, cheddar cheese, caramelized onions, arugula, and sunny-side up egg. I think my guests will love this over Thanksgiving and Christmas.
This Pear Leek Galette with Goat Cheese and Walnuts is a simple, savory tart that would make a delicious dinner or appetizer.
Did you know there were 500 varieties of pears? You can learn all about that and more in The Book of Pears!
