How to Cut a Pineapple


My first thought was "How to cut these prickly things?"
 I know it's been a while, but I'm back, full force!  Anyways though, today here in AZ where I live, it hit 110 degrees!!! The first day of summer as far as I'm concerned. As a refreshing, yet healthy snack, a perfect idea is to munch on pineapple. I had absolutely NO IDEA how to cut a pineapple until my mom showed me how.
   1.  Lay the pineapple on its side and cut off the head and the butt.



2.  Stand up the pineapple and slice off the skin of the pineapple making sure that you cut off the brown knots because they are hard to chew.



3. Cut the flesh off around the core of the pineapple (the middle), as the core is so hard it's usually inedible.




4. Dice the pineapple into bite-sized chunks to pop into your mouth for instant refreshment. Or serve whatever way you'd like. Enjoy!

Happy National Doughnut Day!

Hey guys! Everyone loves doughnuts, and I am no exception! 

Dunkin Donuts and Krispy Kreme gave out free donuts in honor of the holiday, which falls every year on the first Friday of June.  National Donut Day began as a fundraiser for the Salvation Army in 1938.  It’s held annually, in honor of the female volunteers of World War I who served donuts to soldiers behind the front lines.

So if you haven't properly celebrated yet, please do go get yourself a doughnut today!
