Aaah, that most capricious of fruits, with its three-minute period of perfect ripeness book-ended by weeks of rock hard-ness or headily perfumed squishiness. I can't be bothered with them, really.

I've given them to the baby a couple of times, and she thinks they are okay. I don't bother giving her chip-sized portions, i just slice the bum-cheek off one side and had it over. It is kinda messy but at least it's wet and clear so it's easy to wipe up.

Quick Tea

Tuesday, July 25th, 2006

We’ve all just returned from holiday and needed a quick dinner plus we had some pears looking a pit peaky.


Boomer took the pieces of toast and obviously the pear slices fell off but she just picked them up once she had finished with the toast.



Slices of wholemeal bread

Pesto (I used red pesto as that’s what we had in the fridge)

Slices of pear

Slices of cheese (whatever type you like we had a selection of whatsleftinthefridgeous variety)

Some fresh basil leaves (admittedly we didn’t have this tonight but I’ve used it before and it’s delicious)



Lightly toast the bread (either on one side under the grill or quickly in the toaster). Slice the toast half to create smaller pieces to create a couple of

Spread the toast with a slather of pesto, place a slice of pear and a leaf of basil on top and finish with a thin slice of cheese. Place under the grill until the cheese is nicely melted.
