last night I made halibut for dh/dd older
broccoli

I cheated with something awful - a comfort food because I was hungry earlier and then I cheated again last night - but that day is over and I feel stronger.

dd younger made a great dish by Happy Pear (the world of the Happy Pear)
a pad thai without nuts and mushrooms (not her favourite)
healthy and full of veggies - I am always amazed how many veggie dishes are delicious.

hi, blessed. Mmmmmmm..... croquettes! Sounds yummy. Yes, I think kale has one of the most pleasant tastes among the greens.

The story in our house is fruit, as I learn to cut pineapple attractively and also other fruit like kiwi and mango so far. Planning shopping trips for more variety this week. HRH says he is totally spoiled after my experiments with 2 large fresh pineapples and can't possibly go back to any other kind. He says fresh pineapple is positively added to our meals line-up now, such as pineapple fried rice . 8-)

With input from family, especially dstepson, I've decided to follow this lady's method for cutting and serving pineapple for a buffet, although I will cut the top away because I want more space on the platter for a variety of fruit. Dstepson doesn't like pineapple, and in fact doesn't even like the look of it. So he turned out to be the perfect subject - the method he found attractive, that almost tempted him to try a slice (smile) was definitely the one. He says maybe he'll try eating some of the next one!

A new set of paring knives specifically meant for fruit has turned out to be a good purchase for my kitchen, at about $10. Requires extra safety thinking, but definitely the right tools.

oooo pineapple fried rice - sounds marvellous! I am so hungry right now and that sounds like what I would love to have for dinner right now! I want to try that!.

You are not going to believe this but at our wedding (years ago :D ) we had pineapple like that (without the top) - they called it pineapple boats!

what do you put in your pineapple fried rice? I would love to know.

those knives are pretty cool. I always love hearing about your cooking!
