A single pear

March 14, 2012

I wasn’t going to write my blog today because I’ve got no photos of food, I didn’t cook dinner and I didn’t even eat any interesting snacks which tempted me into photographing them.  I was at another meeting (which straddled lunch time today) and this time the fare was tired sandwiches and mouth puckering salt and vinegar mini rice cakes (honest) – though I think it was called a buffet lunch. (Salt and vinegar rice cakes are an abomination – absolutely nothing about this flavour combination is right.)

So I thought I’d cut my losses and go to bed before midnight for a change.

The beloved was aghast at my decision. “Postaday!” he said “There’s a clue there”.  He has a point.

So while this offering isn’t a photo, and I haven’t cooked it (though Poppy ate it)  it is a watercolour painting of a pear which I finished earlier this week. What’s more,  its brothers and sisters are  languishing in the fruit bowl, going slowly yellower and blotchier meaning that soon they too could feature on this blog in an enticing recipe. Post done. Beloved satisfied.
