Ohhhhh weeee, it's flippin' cold with stories of snow on the way. Glad we hit the market last night but bummer, no organic fennel. That's the one thing about Wegmans, they're hit or miss as to what's on offer, each time I go. So I tasted a piece of the non-organic fennel and boy was it bland, bland, bland.
However, I did get me a heavy pineapple that I set upside down, on the counter. Pineapples don't get ripe once picked BUT, their butts are full of juice and setting them upside down, helps the butt juice (that sounds much worse than it is), travel to the top. Once the fruit smells amazing, it's time to crack that baby open. Been doing it this way for decades and it's never failed.
That's about all here. I'm gonna go find something to eat, then hit Monster for a walk and after that, Frankenberry should be home. Boogie boogie and have a yummy day.
Didn't know that about pineapples Ivy. Will have to try it. We are supposed to get heavy snow so watching it like a hawk as we are booked to go out tonight.ReplyDelete
Did you get to go out?Delete
Hope the pineapple trick works for you. Just gotta try and pick a nice smelling one that is heavy for its size. Then upside down and when it smells AMAZING (but not rotten), it's good to go.
Hmmm never knew that about pineapples. I'll try it next time I buy one.ReplyDelete
Once you start picking good ones and setting upside down, pineapple eating time should be filled with yum.Delete
When it smells amazing (but not rotten), it's good to go. Enjoy and boogie boogie.
Didn't know that about pineapples either!ReplyDelete
Are you doing any diabetic baking these days?Delete
I noticed you are ready for Christmas Ivy ;)))ReplyDelete
Hi Gloria. Yes, the house was decorated right after Halloween. We go straight from oogie boogie to ho-ho-ho.Delete
Do you decorate?
That is really cool info about the pineapple. I had no idea!ReplyDelete
Helps even out the flavour.Delete
I didn't know that about pineapple! Will have to try that.ReplyDelete
Did you ever get to make pineapple ice cream? I had some the other morning. So flippin' good.Delete
intrigued to try pineapple trick, do you lop off the stemmy stuff or balance it on the green bit?ReplyDelete
Balance it with the greens still on. Then when it smells amazing, like you walk past and go wow, that's when it us usually ready.Delete
Also, helps to select a good smelling pineapple at the store, heavy for its size. No mold or rot.
And you should be good to go.
Never heard of turning a pineapple upside down, makes senseReplyDelete
It just brings it all together, juice-wise.Delete
In all my loooong years on this Earth, I never knew to turn that pineapple upside down...sure will do it the next time I get one.....ReplyDelete
It's a great trick. Just gotta pay attention to smell and you should be good to go.Delete
Just writing about your latest comment on my blog. I enabled it and it didn't appear. Weird. But your earlier one is on there dated 12 November . Maybe they are taking a long time to appear, Blogger is specially pondering your posts or something . :)ReplyDelete
Normally, I end up in junk mail folders. Thanks for the comment.Delete
I love pineapple and am glad to know what you said about it!ReplyDelete
We had 17" snow yesterday, heavy heavy snow. It's beautiful this morning with the sun shining, but that's about all I can say about it. Hope you don't get this much of the stuff!
We live in a snowbelt and we hardly got anything. I would have loved to get what you got.Delete
Good info about the pineapple ... we only eat a little because it can raise Eddie's blood sugar numbers too high!ReplyDelete
It has got very cold in parts of the UK and some have had a little snow, not us we have cold winds though ... had to get my thicker socks, gloves and scarf out!!!
Hope you are having a good weekend Ho Ho Ho and boogie oogie !!!
Thanks for all your lovely comments on the low carb diabetic blog - we love receiving, reading and sharing them.
All the best Jan
Gotta be tough when you have to count every single ding dong carb, the way you do. But, we do what we gotta. Good on you for supporting your honey bunny.Delete
Interesting tidbit about pineapples. They are one fruit I don't care for. They're just too sweet for me but my daughter loves them.ReplyDelete
There are a few others here fhat agree with you. To me, they are a wonderful balance fruit with lots and lots of healing properties. A must have, in my kitchen.Delete
I'm going with, butt juice.Delete
Wow that's new to me! I've been doing it wrong all along then :-( Thanks for the tip! Pineapple is yummy and sooo good for you. It's funny when you're used to eating organic the other stuff tastes so much different. I'm the same way with fish. I can't eat the frozen stuff. It just tastes like nothing to me.ReplyDelete
Yes, so many good things about pineapple.Delete
And if you start with a good smelling one that is heavy for her size, then flip for a few days, you should be good to go.
Just take care not to let her rot but after awhile, your nose will know.
Fresh fish ... ah, it's been FOREVER since I've had that. What's your favorite?
Hmmmm...the butt juice pineapple trick is new to me, must try it!ReplyDelete
