Citrus wine poached pears are a fancy looking dessert that are super easy to make! Bursting with orange flavor and warm fall spices, these wine poached pears scream “fall has arrived”!
Wait, did Victoria Secret just call me a slut?
If you were driving and saw a license plate that read ” <3 SLT “, what would you think? Well, I for one, would giggle while dangerously trying to snap a picture to text to my friends. Now, imagine discovering that same text on your new bra, spelled out in rhinestones. First of all, if I had noticed the rhinestones before then, I wouldn’t have made the purchase, secondly, WTF. There it is, on the side of my bra, <3 SLT. I even flipped it over to see if I was reading something incorrectly. Nope, that’s definitely what it said.
Um, excuse me, did Victoria Secret just call me a slut?
Ooooh, that’s the abbreviate of a category of style in you line of undergarments (Sexy Little Thing). I guess that makes it OK.
No one at the office caught that? Really, someone in PR should have picked up on that one in this age of twitter, texting and shortened English language.
And now to get my booty back into kitchen for one of the sexiest desserts I think I’ve ever made.
Citrus wine poached pears are gloriously sexy… and they know it. 😉
