I’m Baaaack

Okay….it’s time to be back.  Plenty of excuses…..spring cleaning..inside and out …translates to OMG, my honey is home in two weeks.  Homecoming and catching up with friends.  Family reunion….who knew when we got together our family would have gotten this big and its still growing.  Normal summer stuff.  Change heating stove from propane to wood and then ya gotta go get wood.  A couple of trips to the emergency room with FIL and then helping take care of him. Nine more goats.   Different Motorcycle group and getting to know new people. Gkids in school and the normal school stuff with them.   I tried really hard to break my ankle, but didn’t succeed….sure is still sore though.  Learning to sharpen a chainsaw chain.  Getting ready for winter and then Halloween.  I know excuses are like……..

At any rate……we had some pears ripen from our trees.  They have been keeping rather well in the garage.  Here is a very yummy recipe to use some of your fresh pears (next year).

Pear Pie

6 cups fresh pears pealed and slices

juice of 1 lemon

2/3 cup sugar

1 tbsp cornstarch

1/2 tsp ground giner

Sprinkle pears with lemon juice. combine dry ingredients and mix into pears to coat.  Pour pears into unbaked pie shell.


1/2 cup shortening

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 cup flour

Cream together and sprinkle over pears.  Bake at 450 for 10 minutes then for another 20 minutes at 350 or until pears are tender and topping is browned.
