To make this dessert or appetizer takes less than 15 minutes and is so easy. Preheat oven to 400 F. Slice a just-ripe pear in half and place in baking dish. (Oh I rubbed the bottom of the dish with olive oil so the pear wouldn't stick) Drizzle with honey and sprinkle with balsamic vinegar and salt and pepper. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and crumble blue cheese in center of pear and serve. You could use gorgonzola or stilton cheese or sprinkle a few chopped walnuts on top or some fresh thyme. Enjoy.
It was 5 F last night. I blocked the cat door. Barney discovered how to slip out this morning but a few minutes later he was trying to get back in. We thought it was a ghost trying to get in and couldn't figure out how he got out. Barney had slipped between the box I had blocking the door but couldn't push it in to get back in. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
