Last night I finished making this stuff here
Into this stuff.
And I even got this item done, and am almost done with the pattern write out for it.
And speaking of things I said I'd post to my blog..
Blueberry Pear Pie
One bag cascade organic frozen blueberries
A splash of vanilla (size of splash is up to your personal tastes)
3 medium sized ripe pears of your choice
a dash of cardamom (again, up to you on amount)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine blueberries with sugar and vanilla and allow to thaw (I placed in refrigerator over night). Make pie crust of your choice, or just go buy yourself one. No, I make my own, so don't even ask it. I find most have their own preferred way of making crust but for this pie I do a full crust on both bottom and top. Place bottom in greased pie plate. Peel and slice pears thinly lengthwise. In medium pot dissolve cornstarch in water, add remaining spices and berries and pears. Heat to a simmer and when liquid starts to thicken cook for 3 minutes stirring frequently. Transfer fruit mixture to crust. Place top crust on, trim of any extra, turn up sides and pinch seal the edges. Place several vent slices in top of crust. Place in oven on middle rack and bake for one hour or longer if needed until crust is golden brown. At high altitudes such as Casper I add 10-15 minutes to my baking time then turn broiler on to high to brown crust.
Warm or cool, it's a delicious pie. Garnish as you wish and serve!
Got it? Good.
Now, on a side a note, I was heading into class tonight and as I entered the building and was walking down the hall, I sneezed. A woman who looked vaguely familiar blessed me and as I said Thank you, I thought I reckognized her and asked, "Did you cut off all your hair?"
She smiled and kinda plumped her curls as she said, "Yes I did."
"It looks great." I said as I walked past her and slowly realized that I didn't quite recognize her as much as I thought I did. As I continued down the hall I turned to look over my shoulder and saw her keep brushing at her hair and smiling. A few minutes later as I sat in class the person I had thought she was walked in with tresses intact. I just kinda nodded to myself and though, "Well, I made someone feel good tonight."
Back to work with me tomorrow, so I thought I better get another post up tonight. Hope you have a great week. Oh, and since Bob is back from his busy two weeks on the road, I figured I could post this little pic of Tucker moping when he was packing. The break in has made me nervous about letting many people know when one of us is out of town.
Tucker always mopes when Bob leaves. It's ridiculous. We'll go for a walk and he'll play and romp with everyone, then we come home and he mopes next to the bed. Pitiful, absolutely pitiful.
