I'm not much of a breakfast eater. I generally make myself a cup of tea and then a while later I might have a piece of toast. And I only do that because all the nutritional pundits claim your metabolism will grind to a halt if you don't eat something for breakfast.
Since we had a houseguest this weekend I wanted to have something on hand so that when we got up in the morning I could wave my hand in the general direction of the kitchen and say "have at it."
Pears are tricky. They are like avocados in that you have to think ahead to when you want to use them and buy them a few days ahead of time. Otherwise they are rock hard and flavorless. I also don't know if Bartlett pears are the best baking pears. They were okay but the bread wasn't as peary tasting as I wanted it to be. It did smell heavenly while baking but it could have been zucchini bread or persimmon bread for all the pear flavor it had.
I understand that the flavors of the bread develop over a couple of days so I'm hoping that in a day or two it wil be the pear bread that I was envisioning.
Now if we only had a coffee maker I would be the perfect hostess.
