I've been screaming at nurses so much that they've taken to stuffing donuts in my mouth to get me to shut up. True story.

hm, maybe i should try that with the shums. added bonus, if i stuff them with enough doughnuts, with a little luck they might all go into sugar comas. of course, that outcome is dubious at best, and that many doughnuts would get expensive...

Why am I not surprised? You have this thing for giving, UncleDuke, not to mention doughnuts. Good on ya.

I was going to head to the grocer to pick up the Batletts (thanks, Master Wood), but I see my wife has a pile of rhubarb on the counter and I'm guessing that's not going to be for a casserole. So we might have a change of plans for today's "doughnut".

By the time I remembered that today is Donut Day, it was too late to get to a donut shop. (They all close at noon here in Texas.) I think it's probably better for my diet that I didn't get one.

So what happens when the dog goes in the kitchen to bake a pear tart? Well, I chose the simple recipe that has four ingredients: pie crust, pears, sugar, and lemon juice. I make the crust from scratch (piece of cake - ahem!). Then I peel, core, and slice the pears. Then I skim the next step and it says to throw the pear slices in a big bowl and there's something about 1/3 of a cup and lemon juice. The chemist in me is thinking this is good - the lemon juice will keep the pears from oxidizing and turning brown. So I do it. Man, this is a lot of lemon juice. Okay, now carefully arrange the slices in the pie crust to make it look pretty. I do that with a lot of effort. Now put it in the oven. Wait, where's the sugar?? I look back and I was supposed to put the pear slices in a bowl with 1/3 cup of sugar and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. Doh!!! Well, I'm not taking them out of the crust and starting again. So I sprinkle the sugar all over the pear slices in the crust. Hey, it'll cook through. Right? We'll see. My wife and daughter are just laughing at me. Typical. It's in the oven now and we'll see how it turns out in 40 minutes.

Okay, it's out of the oven and it looked - wet. Like soup in a pie crust with some pear slices everywhere. Duh!! So I poured out about half or more of the liquid and then I glazed it with the pear syrup and am letting it cool. I'll tell you later how it tastes.

Yummo! It turned out fine, though I don't recommend the ad hoc changes I made. Gosh, I love the taste of cooked pears. They have so much more flavor than most apples. Happy MR Doughnut Day (+1)!

You're welcome, Zelda. (somehow I knew that Montsnmags Enterprises would come through for me to manage the spatial and time reorientation processes necessary to make a snappy delivery)
