a pair of pear eaters

Tonight before I came to bed I ate a pear. It was juicy and tasty. I was very happy. It didn't stop me from wanting an entire pan of Gooey Butter Cake Bars, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.

When I finished the pear I started to throw it away. I had eaten it to the center. Not through the center. My husband and I started to have a conversation about pears. He says you should eat a pear like a banana. All the way through. I leave the very center. It has a hard line through it. Of course neither of us eats the very ends (the stem end and the booty end).
Okay, I want everyone to tell me how you eat a pear.

Well I don't eat the center. I eat it like I would an apple.

Logan, however, eats it ALL. Of course, what else would you expect from him!

I take the fuzzy end off the bottom, and eat it from there to the stem, seed centre and all. I don't leave anything, it is good ruffage. I just bought a bunch of different types today when grocery shopping.

Thanks for visiting my non fun Monday today.

I use an apple slicer, which cores the middle. and then I eat it slice by slice. (:

I suppose I eat a pear like an apple. If it is ripe to perfection, I may delve closer to the core. My most favorite way to eat a pear is poached!

I also eat my pears like apples and leave the center. But I might have to use Pamela's idea and use my apple wedger.

I leave the center too - there are seeds in there. p.s. come on over to my blog... I have a surprise for you.

I only leave the stem end and the booty end (I like that term). I eat the middle.

With something so important you have to ask yourself- What would Jesus Do?

gretchen said...

I don't know cuz I don't eat pears. Remember I am the picky one!

Cynthia said...

Ben, I believe that Jesus is very smart and would agree with his wife!

I guess it depends on how hungry I am, as to whether or not I will adventure into the middle iffy area.

I normally leave the core, my girls don't normally though (they love there pears to much to leave anything behind)
