Pear Pie

I baked just two pies yesterday (I wanted to bake four), so I'll bake the other two today. As most of you know, I have been blessed with an abundance of pears this year and am finding different ways to cook and preserve them.

Here are the pies going into the oven:

(You can find the recipe here on

And here is the pie going into the tummies:

(Yes...doggies like'ems the pears too!)

...except Gizzy, he doesn't like much! Sometimes I think he barely likes me;-)

Sandi, I and our dogs had a little breakfast with Pear Streusel Pie and coffee at the lake this morning. Gizzy was whining the whole time because he wasn't allowed on the table for once, since we had it set with table cloth and food for a change.

After we were done eating and everything was put away, I put him up on the picnic table and then he was satisfied, look! Isn't he just rotten? (I wonder how that happened?) In the buggy behind him is his pal Tuffy (r) and the young Miss Sophie (who LOVED the pie!)

Thanks for all your kind comments yesterday. I appreciate your tolerating my venting post - I try not to do that very often, but I have a soft spot for trees and flowers. I will stop by and see you little by little in between baking the other two pies. 

Enjoy your day everyone!

Well, poor little Gizz will just have to get over himself won't he, lol. Yes, he's spoiled but why not?

Good to see you enjoying your morning with Sandi and the kids!

Love You Dear Girl...
Enjoy your day!

You must be quite a cook! Tuffy and Sophie are just adorable! I Just read your post below, which I had missed on my day off yesterday. Unbelievable!!! Is this person the grounds keeper there? Why doesn't the manager fire him? No proof, I guess...I hope this guy isn't dangerous, it seems he has a lot of pent up anger!

I'm trying to remember having pear pie and I can't , what a shame, I love all things pear and I know pear pie has to be good.

I'm full from dinner a little earlier but I think I could squeeze enough room for a slice of that pie!
