Happy Fat Tuesday!

So 2 years ago, I drove down to New Orleans with a bunch of friends and we celebrated Mardi Gras. This year is definitely not quite as adventurous. I remember being so thirsty one morning in NOLA that I woke up, went down to the hotel bar, and asked for some fruit. Wonder why I was so thirsty? 😉 Anyway, in honor of this fabulous holiday, how appropriate that I cut a pineapple this morning?

First cut the top off then the sides

Next, cut all down the pineapple and into pieces

And last, enjoy at the bar in the kitchen

My Dad actually brought me this pineapple and I was surprised to hear he paid a mere $2.00 for this baby. Pineapple is one of my favorite fruits but it can be pretty pricey at times.

Happy Fat Tuesday!

    Mmm pineapple! I love cutting it at home so it’s nice and fresh! 🙂

  2. I LOVE pineapple. It is definitely one of my favorite fruits. However, I rarely buy it because for some reason I have been intimidated about cutting it up? You certainly make it sound simple enough, though!

  3. That pineapple looks amazing! I am always terrible at cutting mine!

    I got a pineapple from Trader Joe’s this weekend and have been enjoying it the past couple of days! I even threw it into a stir-fry with some shrimp, broccoli, and terayaki sauce the other night. Mmm-mm!

    I LOVE pineapple, but only on it’s own. I’m not really a fan of pineapple flavored anything else!
