Apples and Pears

When pregnant with my first child I had a relentless craving for pears. If only my craving had been in Autumn, when pears are in such abundance, what a wonderful feast I could have indulged in. These days I enjoy pears equally for both their taste and wonderful design. While making this apple and pear pie last night it occurred to me that so far we have done little to acknowledge the new season and its offerings. The making of this pie is then the first of hopefully many happy and familiar autumnal rituals and activities that will occur over the next few months.

I wish I liked pears. They smell so good. It's the texture I don't like. But, that pie. I could LOVE them in a pie like that.

I am so ready for Autumn after the summer we have just had in Victoria and up North. It is breakfast time here and seeing that pie is making me so very hungry.
