St. Patrick's Day Cake - for some it's only One Direction

A fun St. Patrick's Day Cake,
highlighting some of the things we love about Ireland...

Artistic lads that make the world a little more fun...

but for my daughter, 
Ireland only goes in One Direction!

Best thing since sliced pear...

Inspiration hits me at the strangest times.
I was running around, doing last minute, mundane errands and
a loaf of bread, from French bakery, caught my eye.
I had to have it...

So last night with thick, juicy pork chops,
 we had a salad to pair with the amazing Buckwheat Pear Loaf.

Crisp and light

 with a touch of sweet nuttiness...

Arugula Pear Salad
whisk together:
3 Tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar
6 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1 tsp honey
1 tsp Dijon mustard
dash of salt and dash of pepper

Drizzle over
5 oz of arugula
1 sliced ripe pear

Top with
toasted walnuts 
grated Manchego Cheese

Bay Area Peeps, 
you can get the fabulous bread here!
