a plethora of pears

Beloved made bisque last night because we have a plethora of pears. my daddy, who lives in california which is where adam and eve got kicked out of, to hear him tell it, sent us an annual basket of goodies and this year, the fruit that arrived was slightly - well, rather like the rest of us, i think - bruised.

Beloved used four pears last night to make the soup (and one large butternut squash - as well as olive oil, nutmeg, onion and chicken broth. cream, which makes it a bisque can be added at the end, or, as i discovered today, the soup is perfectly delicious with out it. i'd like to try different combinations of spices or herbs... i think thyme might be nice to try... Beloved served mine with garnished the minced chives.)

we still have four pears left. so tomorrow, i think pear-walnut muffins will be in our future...unless another idea occurs to us...

pear recipes, anyone?

Wow, your Beloved's soup sounds delish!! Hmm, I love toasted french bread with a nice pear slice covered with a melted piece of brie with a light, fruity chardonnay from yes, California aka little slice of heaven, but certainly not Eden.

Sorry not a pear person. Love to know what you come up with.

that pear bisque sounds heavenly!! Yum - & your giggling group of gal friends also . . . I think of a pear smoothie, or fresh pears in salad with blue cheese crumbles & spinach or dark lettuce, & almond or walnut slices . . . (better with un-bruised pears, of course) . . .

found the give away over at Crazed mind thru the post on Kim's blog (via her comment here :)

Sounds like you had a yummy dinner. I love pears. Pear walnut muffins sounds delicious.

I wandered over to your blog from SITS.
