introducing new foods: yogurt

D'anjou and Starkrimson pearspears aren’t the dirtiest of fruits but they aren’t the cleanest either. so i went to our local organic grocer and the ones they had in  stock were the D’anjou, Bosc and Starkrimson pears. the quality of the D’anjou pear was the best that day so i started k with them.
