fruit stand faves: seckle pears!

seckel pears

there's a little fruit stand not far our house that sells mostly local stuff, and every year they get some zany thing i never heard of. last year, i was severely obsessed with fresh cranberry beans. we ate them 2-3 times a week during their sadly short growing season.

this year, there were bushels of the tiniest pears i had ever seen! apparently, they're called "seckle pears" and they are super sweet and super cute. i don't really eat a lot of hand fruits because the size is too intimidating. a "premium-sized" apple could take me over an hour to finish. i'm not a sickly little waif, i just don't like to eat fruit quickly. that being said, the little bebes are the perfect size for a more timid fruitavore.

My favorite? Almost anything pumpkin. I even make pumpkin ice cream. But, this recipe sounds yummy. I might give it a try.

And where did you get that awesome table cloth!!!

the tablecloth is awesome! and the pears look good too... my boyfriend has a fruit phobia (really. we can't have fruit in the house) so now fruit is really exotic to me and i have to eat it in secret...
pumpkins for me too.x
