Pear and Apple Compote with vodka

yes, even on this charming lake, the most beautiful in Italy :)))
it is getting cold!
brrr, from one day to another, the temperature sank with 20°C.
it is ok realy, I like the different seasons, but I wish it would have
changes more softly. not so drastic.

I look at my Black Mulberry tree (Morus Nigra) , it gets more yellow each day
and against the grey sky that looks absolut magnificient,
but it also ooks great against a clear blue sky, or when the sun is going down.
san vigilio, morus nigra quercus rubra
good moning, Monday! :)
morus nigrait
is time to cut some branches and take them inside to
decorate the fireplace. together it will look nice with
the yellow leaves of False locust tree or false acacia tree (robinia pseudoacacia)
if you find some branches of Boston Ivy, (Parthenocissus tricuspidata)
(even if it tends to loose it's leaves very quickly)
and some pomegranate apples it could look really nice :)
I usually leave this decoration for all October, and in the beginning of November
I begin decorate for Christmas.

it is so nice to light the fireplace and see the fire give a romantic glow to everything.
and, after dinner just sit in front of the fire, talking and perhaps eating this dessert.
very quick, very easy, very perfumed!

  1. The pear is useful in weight loss diets, including food, fiber maintains its fullness and cleanses the body, also have many vitamin and potassium. SO the pear is one of the fruits with more properties and is very easy to find it. Just go at supermarket and you will have varieties to shoose from.
