Last night, as I was strolling through the grocery store, I came across some pears. I’m not normally a pear person – they’re a little too gritty for me – but for some reason, I bought four.
At home, I put the pears in a bowl and stared at them. I kept asking myself, why did I just buy four pears. I don’t even like pears. After a good five minutes I stopped staring at the pears and started to get things ready for dinner.
Later, my Mom called to tell me about a recipe she had just made. And guess what? It called for pears. Four medium pears. It was fate. She quickly emailed me the recipe for Spiced Pear Crumble. I looked it over. Pears, cranberries, and maple syrup … it sounded like delightful.
An hour later, my apartment was filled with the sweet aroma of vanilla, cinnamon, and pears. I pulled the crumble out of the oven and added a giant scoop of vanilla ice cream. The first bite was heavenly – a perfect blend of sweetness and spice.
Hmm…I guess this means I’m going to have to buy pears more often.
