Creamy Pear Vinaigrette

Creamy Pear Vinaigrette | Faith, Hope, Love, and Luck Survive Despite a Whiskered Accomplice

Spring is almost here. Almost. I can’t believe that mulching time is just around the corner, which is always a day full of fun here at The Delawder Matthews House. By the end of the day neither of us feels like moving, our hands are ripped apart, and my feet are usually black from insisting on wearing flip-flops for the entire day. On the upside, the yard always looks so beautiful afterwards, and is ready for our guests to enjoy at our Annual Easter Egg Hunt for Money. I’m already beginning to consider what the menu will be this year. As of right now, I’m leaning towards B.O.B. Bob smoking a ham or two to make sandwiches out of. I think I would like to go with a lighter meal plan this year, with perhaps a few desserts thrown in to satisfy everyone’s sweet tooth. Don’t worry; I’ll serve a salad as well, for those who have special diets. Perhaps a salad with this dressing alongside of it, because it is easy to make, and extremely creamy, without any dairy involved in the ingredients. See, I’m already halfway done with my menu; all I need is to come up with the perfect deviled egg for the occasion.

    This may change my whole dreary outlook on the pear….

      I’m kind of love/hate with pears. They are only good when they are perfect, which is almost never!
