yesterday (monday 15th sept) mel and i celebrated our two year civil partnership anniversary. even tho it was a work day i didnt want the day to go by without trying out a new recipe in order to celebrate. i had been wanting to try the pear and blue cheese combo for a while so i gave it a go. its fairly easy to do. peel, quarter and slice thinly two pears. melt a knob of butter in a pan and add the pears. add two tblsp of honey and cook on low heat till caramelised. meanwhile toast your bread of choice, sprinkle some oil on top and the slices of blue cheese, grill till cheese melted. add the pears on top and serve with rocket. as we had some smoked mackerel in the fridge i also threw together a pasta mackerel type salad to fill any gaps. all washed down with freixenet cava. mel surprised me with flowers and i surprised her with food and wine. what a team huh!!!
