Pear sandwich

The Holiday season is going on well. We are doing some little fun thing everyday. One day we went to the Christmas lighting event in our town. Then, one day we went around the neighborhood to see the Christmas lighting on the houses. In the mean time all of us were down with bad cold. While father and son has almost recovered, I’m still down with cold.


We also made some Christmas crafts. First my son demanded a Christmas train from boxes. Actually two years ago I made one Christmas train from boxes. Somehow, that didn’t turn out good. Last year I tried to alter it, but the result was not satisfactory. This year I had been thinking  of making one train. So, when my son put a little pressure on me to make another train, I readily agreed. However, the problem was, to finding right size of boxes. I rummaged over my stored cartons, but I didn’t find any right sized box. Then, suddenly I remembered some same sized tea leaves boxes in my pantry. I took out the tea pouches, and used them to make the cars of the train, and an empty toilet paper served as the engine. And here is my train.

Then my son wanted to make a Santa’s sleigh with me.  In making of the train he couldn’t take part much, as it was not so easy to make. So, in making of sleigh, he was determined to take active part. So, I found out some soft cardboards, which he could cut. He cut out the side of the sleigh, then to make them sturdy I used Modge Podge and old new paper. I cut the news papers into small pieces and stuck on the cardboard cut outs. Anyway, the whole process became a little lengthy, and he lost interest in making it. However, he found a foam-Santa from his treasures, and we put that in front of the sleigh, which solved the problem of unavailability of Santa. Here is our Santa Sleigh. 

Anyway, apart from making crafts , I’m trying feed my family some different dishes during the holiday season. Here is one recipe from our breakfast table.
One ripe pear
Six slices of sandwich bread
Apple butter (you can use maple syrup also)
Butter to fry the bread
Heat a shallow frying pan in low-medium. Take a butter stick and rub on the pan. Butter usually get burned very quickly. So, you need to be fast. Put one slice, put in the pan. Swirl it with hand pressing in the pan. So that, one side can get fried. Then flip the beard, and fry in the same manner pressing down it into the pan.  In same way fry all the bread slices. If you think that you cannot be fast. Then, first rub butter in pan, then heat the pan in low-medium. Meanwhile cut the pear into halves. Core it. Then thinly slice the pear. Take one slice of bread, arrange 4-5 pear slices on it. Spread one tbsp. of apple butter over the pear slices. Cover with another slice of bread. Cut the sandwich diagonally, and serve.
