Happy Friday! I hope you had a great week! Do you have any fun plans for the upcoming weekend? I am not sure what is on my agenda yet, but I hope it involves some much needed relaxation! ๐Ÿ™‚

This recipe is another one of those quick and easy meals that I threw together one day! I actually made this for the first time back at the beginning of the year (?) possibly even December and shared a picture of it on Instagram. I had a lot of requests for the recipe, but like many things, it got filed into the archives and forgotten about…until the other day! I was looking through some food pictures and remember I had promised this recipe, so I remade them again and I must say, they tasted even better this time around (so good that I made them 2 days in a row!)! I hope you enjoy them! ๐Ÿ™‚

I had mine over a kale and cranberry salad with sliced avocado and the remaining pear! SO, SO, SO delicious! Super simple and unbelievably flavorful and moist! The sweet and savory combination wins again here! You could also make this into a large loaf by multiplying all ingredients by four!

    This sounds so good! I have a feeling I'd be eating them by myself however, my husband seems afraid of fruit in his main dishes.
