I'm not a big fruit and vegetable eater, never have been. But my kids are getting me to broaden my horizons. Every time they accompany me to the grocery store I end up buying something surprising. Like kiwi fruit. Or plums. Or pears.
And this past week I did one more thing I never thought I'd do; I bought a whole pineapple with the intention of cutting it up at home.
My kids begged me. I'm not kidding.
And so this weekend we tackled the pineapple.
It was delicious, juicier and firmer than the canned stuff I usually buy. The pieces were disappearing as quickly as I could cut them up.
Next on our list: pomegranate.
