Happy Pancake Sunday, friends!

A few weeks ago, I asked what fruits you guys were loving on this winter. While it sounded like MOST of you were on the cutie train along with me, ONE person chimed in with something different…

Lucie, this beer’s pear’s for you! 😉

As I bebopped (which Meghan would totally approve of) around my kitchen, collecting my ingredients, thinking of the flavors I wanted to PEAR (tee hee) with my fresh winter fruit, I caught a glimpse of my crazy bed-head in the microwave door and I had it…

Ginger!

But not just any dried-up, bottled-up, collecting-dust-in-the-cabinet-since-gingerbread-making-season-is-over ginger, oh no…I went for straight for the fresh stuff and I’m SO glad I did!
