It's raining Apples and Pears!

The weather has been a bit erratic.
It hails...mostly it rains.
This was the scene at the Hood River, Oregon Harvest Fest. Not too festive, but we did come home with 65 pounds of apples and pears!

This is my personal stash.

I'm starting with a nice ripe Bartlett Pear. 

Mom wants to make these mini Caramel Apples, that she saw in a magazine. You scoop an apple with a melon baller, put a twig in it, dip it in caramel and roll it in nuts and chocolate. 
Bite Sized Heaven!!

Stanzie says, "Thanks for saving the red pear for me!"

Happy Harvest!
Wyatt and Stanzie

  19. Well Wyatt, who is going to walk you while your p's are making deliciousness in the kitchen with all those pears and apples?


  20. We don't think we have ever tasted pear, Wyatt. You make it look delicious. Mom says she gets so mad when she buys pears at the store, just like peaches. - they always look good, but take a bite, and blech:(

    Enjoy those caramel apple treats, they look great.
