FRESH PINEAPPLE....and a new gadget......

I am linking up to 'Your Cozy Home Party' hosted every Tuesday by Shannon at Cozy Home Scenes. Check out her blog for more great 'cozy home' posts!

Nothing is better in the dead of winter than fresh pineapple...

My husband rooted tops of other pineapples by placing the tops in soil....

A new gaget, at least to me, is a pretty red pineapple corer...very easy to use....perfect slices every time....

        Bon Appetit!

Edited to add:  During the winter the plants are moved into the green house.

Let them eat cake!

Would you care for a slice of coconut cake?

This one takes about 10 minutes to make.

First you find a plastic salad mold at a thrift store for 25 brush on my friend, Elmer....then sprinkle liberally with bagged Christmas snow.
A beautiful Coconut Cake...with absolutely NO calories!
