Let's make Juice

I'm up to my elbows in pears. Besides making compote out of them, I found a couple of simple recipes on that I want to try, but for now let's just make juice.

I pulled out my trusty Juiceman last night to make some pear juice and it was delicious!

I used the pears I picked last week, so they had a chance to sit around and get a little tastier.

I also tried pear and fresh pineapple and this morning for breakfast, I made pear and blueberry juice.

Looks like a Frappuccino from on top, doesn't it?

All I can say, thanks Bill for giving me a Mr. Juiceman juicer for Christmas several years ago and I'm so glad I didn't leave it behind when I moved from CA to GA. I will use it a lot more from now on. I think I have found a new addiction (just what I need!) ... but at least it's a healthy one!

So, get juicing and drink up! Here's to your health!

I'll be back soon to let you know how my Pear Streusel Pie turned out!

"Whatever, ma!"

A note about Blogger: I've been having some issues with uploading photos to my side bar and today, my profile photo disappeared. When I tried uploading it, blogger tells me its usual blurb: "You've reached your photo uploading quota" and I should pay for more memory on Picasa's web album. I have deleted several photos on my side bar, but that didn't seem to make any difference, so I'm just going to have no profile photo (for now) as long as I can still upload on my posts, I'm just letting it go before I pay for something that may fix itself later after they're done working on blogger and Picasa, etc.

Today is the last day to enter my Christmas in July Giveaway!

We should drink some juice every day - have you seen Jack LaLane - he is still going strong!

I love pears and pie - does Gizzy partake in any?

I've never had pear juice but I used to buy it for my babies to drink. It looks delicious!

When I first blogging there were a few blogs that ran into that issue with their blogs. I think one paid but the other just started another blog. That's what I plan on doing when I run out of room! I've already reserved my new names! lol I'm holding onto those and then when the time comes I'll use them!

Have a Great Day!

Sounds yummy! I don't own a juicer, will have to see if Walmart has one. I love all things pear. Give a smooch to Gizzy from me.

Ich verehre alles über Birnen…. ihr Geruch, ihr Geschmack…. Birne Saft muß himmlisch sein, wo Sie sind….ein wirklich erneuerndes Sommergetränk! Hier in SF… es ist die zu Kälte, zum sich hinzugeben! Aber...oh dieser Birne Streusel….er klingt divine.....darf Ich das receipe haben?

Liebe Gruße,

♥ Robin ♥

p.s. Kuss Gizzy fur mich!!!

I wanna try that pie!

I've heard of others mentioning they had to buy extra photo uploading quota. I've asked before how you would know how close you are to your limit but no one has answered the question yet. I'm thinking no one else probably knows except for the blogger peoples.

Ginny said...

You will be the healthiest person around!! Blogger has also been taking followers off the sidebar, some blogs they do just a few and some they say that a person has no followers! Will Giz get to taste the pie?

Ann said...

pear pineapple juice sounds delicious. I should drink more healthy things than what I do. It's hard to switch though :)
Your profile picture is showing now. I've wondered how long before blogger starts telling me I've reached my quota

Mom isn't too keen on pears, but the grandkids love them. We usually get some good pears here around Christmas time, and Dad often gets some of those wonderful Harry and David ones from his work associates. We don't have a juicer here, but it sure looks like a very healthy option.

The juice does look yummy, did it taste as good as it looks. I have never owned a juicer but it would be fun to try new combinations.

Oh that juice looked so good I too love pears..I always put a 1/2 one in my oatmeal at breakfast. Blogger is always having "burps" Such is blogging I guess...Debb

Val said...

Oh I wish I had a juicer. I had to pay 5.00 about a year ago but it was for lots of pics. It will last me forever I hope.

The fresh juice looks refreshing, and I was thinking a little hot sauce too...mmmm mmmm..good..for a little kick. Hot up here in Ohio Doris, 93 today, all week in fact...great for my 'maters......
