Mid week treat

What's red, warm, sweet, healthy and oh so very tasty?

Tonight's fantabulous dessert!

I knew I wanted something warm. But I wanted ice cream. I knew I wanted something sweet. But I didn't want chocolate.
I found the perfect solution

Vanilla poached pear with strawberries and coconut ice "cream"!

I used a splash of water, a splash of vanilla and a couple squirts of lemon juice and poached this gorgeous red anjou until just soft, then added the last few strawberries for about 30 seconds to heat, swirled it all together and topped it with the last bit (about 1/4 cup) of Coconut non-dairy ice cream.

A great way to end my Wednesday! Time for more R&R... all my work is done!!
