Morning Meanderings… Where I Share New Found Knowledge on Pineapple
Good morning! I am on day 7 of the cleanse that I am on so it is really weird to put my coffee picture on these posts when I have not had coffee for seven days now. SEVEN.
A couple weeks ago I went to a friends Pampered Chef party. I had not been to one in quite a long time. Usually if people have them I just place an order without attending. I am so glad I didn’t do that this time. The Pampered Chef lady was a hoot… but just as importantly she actually taught me a few things I didn’t know.
Lets talk pineapple.
I am not a big fan of buying whole pineapple. My experience has been that the pineapple is dry, woody tasting even. Here is what I learned:
To see if a pineapple is ripe before purchasing, reach in and pull two of the small center leaves. If they pull out easy the pineapple is ripe.
One day before serving, put pineapple upside down in a bowl. This distributes all the sweet juices that have settled to the bottom, to distribute evenly throughout the pineapple. I have tried it twice now, it works… and it is delicious.
So all that said, what did I buy at the party?
The Pampered Chef Pineapple Cutter and corer of course!
No idea why I wanted to share that, maybe you already knew but it was news to me and thought I would share
I also have my last winner to announce form the Audio Book Week. The winner of a copy of Ravens on Audio is:
Whoo Hoo!!! Send me your address please Laurie and I will have that sent off to you directly from Amazon.
Today I work and then hopefully a bike ride
