pair of pears

I purchased a local oregon pear while we were on our travels up north.  And I thought it would be fun to mingle prickly pear with pear to see how the flavors combined.  It’s delicious!


1 C cooked oatmeal
1 pear
1 T prickly pear syrup
1T water


Peel and chop pear.  Add prickly pear syrup and water to a saucepan, mix in pear.  Simmer on medium heat for 5-10 minutes or until the pear becomes soft and infused with the sauce.  Add to your oatmeal and enjoy!

mOMent: Do you have a favorite pair of anything?  A favorite pair of jeans, coffee mugs, dice?  What makes them your favorite pair?

mOMent: Making someone else’s day special can be very fulfilling.  How can you create a special day for someone else?  What can you give back to those around you in order to make their lives just a skosh?
