Spoke Too Soon

By on May 26, 2017

I mentioned the reasons why I’ve been missing in action in my last post,  but it seems like I’ve spoken (or posted) too soon. I’ve been hit hard with morning sickness and it’s the sort that lasts all day. Couldn’t keep anything except a can of Sprite down yesterday. Is facing the toilet seven times in a day normal? 

Fiesta Friday

Unfortunately,  morning sickness has kept me far from the kitchen and it sucks because this week I am cohosting Fiesta Friday with Lindy from Love in the Kitchen.  Fiesta Friday is a fun and welcoming linky to join and while it has taken on a focus on food posts, it’s actually open to all posts that share how you are getting your fiesta on for the weekend. I’ll be visiting and commenting on posts,  so look for me when you’ve joined the linky!

If you dropped by looking for some food posts,  check out my Eats category for some fun and easy ideas.  

If you want to be chosen as a feature post, be sure to follow the guidelines found on the site (mainly about linking back to the correct Fiesta Friday and the co-hosts).  Don’t forget to tag Fiesta Friday on your post so it’s easy to find. Drop by Fiesta Friday #173 to join when you’re ready!

Leave a comment if you join Fiesta Friday so I can keep a special eye out for your post! Also, any ideas to combat morning sickness? I’m dying here.

I shared with you an easy recipe to make over the weekend.  Here is another one for you!  This is a little recipe I made and I’m so bad at coming up with names so…here is Peanut Chocolate Pear.  It’s a nice way to dress up Asian pears for a quick snack.  My daughter loves it and I enjoy eating it, too.  I’m sharing this with you in hopes that you will also enjoy this dish with your loved ones.

Peanut Chocolate Pear Recipe

Ingredients

  • One spoonful of peanut butter
  • One spoonful of milk chocolate chips
  • One Asian pear
  • Dried blueberries
  • Dried cranberries
  • Assorted nuts
  1. Wash, cut, and peel one Asian pear into slices.  This time around, I used the Chinese Yali pear, but you can use any variety of Asian pear, like the round Korean pear.  Place on a plate.
  2. Put one spoonful of peanut butter and one spoonful of milk chocolate chips into a microwave-safe measuring cup.  Microwave for one minute so everything melts and pours easily.  Drizzle over cut pears.
  3. Top with some dried blueberries, dried cranberries, and assorted nuts.  Don’t feed nuts to your toddler if she is unable to chew and swallow them safely.  Otherwise, enjoy!

Allergy Note:  Be aware that this recipe uses peanut butter and nuts.  If you or your child has a nut allergy, you could replace peanut butter with nut-free butter and do not top with additional nuts.
