Our friend Tom gave us 20 pounds of Asian pears last week. When life gives you Asian pears make sauce. Everything else in the menu this week revolves around the pears and sauce.

Menu
Apple Cider Braised Pork Shoulder with Asian Pear Sauce
Rice Pilaf
Tomato and Fennel Casserole
Roasted Butternut Squash Puree

Apple and Asian Pear Crisp

Notes
There were 10 of us for dinner this week (7 adults; 3 child).

I am very happy with how the pork come out. If I had made it the night before I probably would have been able to slice it. It came out more like shredded pork, not exactly my goal but delicious nonetheless.
