When I received my Vegetarian Times Magazine the first dish that I wanted to make was this Roasted Pear Salad with Chèvre and Fig Vinaigrette. I cannot tell you enough how good this salad is. I made it, three times already, since last week. Pear are in season right now and this is a great salad to try different varieties. I tried Bosch, Bartlett, Red Pear and they were equally good in this salad. You have to use a good fig spread like Dalmatia. This is good served as an appetizer or a light lunch meal.
It was Thanksgiving week-end, for us Canadians, last week. We had a full house. My two oldest kids and my mother-in-law came to visit. We played games, ate and we had a great time together. I am still missing looking at the BC mountains covered with snow, in the morning, but prefer to be closer to my family.
