Forelle Pears

"Forelle Pears", 5 x 7", oil on Amersand gessobord

“Why, sometimes I eat six impossible things before breakfast.”
-Pat Coakley, Podsnacks Art of the Diet podcast.

I have found a soul sister! Pat Coakley’s views on diet, politics and art are right up my alley. Pat celebrates vegetables by gorgeously photographing them.  Sometimes one needs a new reason to buy another cabbage.

A trip to my produce market netted these lovely Forelle pears.  Small and speckled, crisp and sweet, these high fiber beauties are a perfectly healthy holiday dessert as is or baked with a teaspoon of butter, ginger, cloves and nutmeg and raspberries.
