September 11th – We Will Not Forget

by Texas Homesteader ~

September 11th has become a somber day of remembrance. What were YOU doing on that fateful day?  I’ve written before about my experience with that horrible day. September 11th, 2001.  A day I’ll never forget.  Do you remember where you were on that day?

My prayers continue for our beloved country, that we may always remember who we are. We're Americans. That's what's important! #TexasHomesteader

But although those memories are painful, they’re still part of our history.  In those days of horror there was a real, shining thing to see.  We witnessed real American moxxy.  We came together as a nation.  We dropped our petty bickering about the trivial matters of the day and we came together to help each other.  We quit being ‘Us’ and ‘Them’ and just became Americans.  Strong.  Proud.  Americans.

My prayers continue for our beloved country, that we may always remember who we are.  We’re Americans!

I’ve heard that pear relish is delicious but… I dunno. I mean sweet pears coupled with savory onions & bell peppers? And jalapenos? And MUSTARD? Blech!

But this pear relish is surprisingly delicious. So much so that I’ve now made and canned this recipe several times. Check it out.

I'm not typically a fan of Sweet & Savory but when you combine pears with onions, peppers and mustard? MAGIC! Check out my Pear Relish. #TexasHomesteader

Taste of Fall: Fresh Pear Cake

by Texas Homesteader ~ 

Pears are one of my favorite fresh fruits. Although I don’t have a producing pear tree yet, when it’s pear season I often have friends that offer for me to pick some of their fresh pears.

There are many ways I can preserve them for later, but I use them fresh for snacking or cooking. This pear cake is a favorite – all moist & cinnamonny. A true taste of fall!
