No Carrots Tonight

Yep, had those carrots in my lunch bag.  Three big bright Juicy Orange ones!

But as luck would have it the sun was setting as I walked out from work!  I really didn't feel like driving all the way out to feed Nevel some carrots for 5 minutes.
Instead I drove on home and found that the pears I had purchased at Machados were perfectly ripe.

AGGGGGHA!!!!

When Nature beckons I must listen!  

So I found myself 9:30 at night canning pears.  I decided to spice them up with a stick of cinnamon in each jar along with cloves and vanilla and light syrup.  They smelled great-but EVERY jar sealed...so..."no opening until Christmas!"
Other Fall Delytes from the weekend included some very healthy (though slightly over-baked) 
Pear Spice Muffins
and
Fresh Fruit

Maybe tomorrow will entail some horsey tails/tales!  : P
Happy Fall Everyone!

Love this post, fall is my favorite season and all the colors and canning reminded me of fall at home. I haven't done the canning thing on my own but it was a big part of life growing up.

I see our forecast finally falling out of the 90s for the foreseeable future, huzzah for fall!

Thanks for the comment! I love fall too.
There is something that MAKES me can fruit even though it is tiresome to do. Guess my mother instilled it in me during childhood and I just can't shake it! : )
But the food sure is tasty later on!
