My posts seem to be about food and life, but you really can’t have one without the other. The people that come in and out of our lives can invoke or inspire a song, food, or whatever you are into. I had one of the best Saturday nights I have had in a long time. It was chill, fun, got to know people from kickboxing on another level. I let go of my normal reserve and sang, and yelled, and just laughed.
Today I said no baking, with my few hours of sleep and raspy voice. In the end there was pear bread. Smitten Kitchen, one of my favorite blogs and bloggers has this great recipe and I decided to go for it. My additions were to add more pear, which happened to be quite juicy, and to add my signature sprinkle of raw sugar to what is now the bottom of the cake. If you have never been I’m smitten kitchen, I urge you to run, not walk. Pictures are awesome, recipes and writing always great. Plus there is usually a new picture of Jacob up, so that works for me!
