Welcome, Monday...once again. Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! To start out the week, I bring you a bit of a tropical treat for your eyes. I come from an island where you can drive past fields and fields of pineapples, and now living in New York City, it's not so easy coming across this sweet fruit. It has such a beautiful shape and color, no wonder why I've been seeing it so widely used in patterns, graphic art, and photography! And now that it's summer, be sure to get your hands on a fresh one. Stand it on it's leaf end (cut off the top leaves) to get the whole pineapple nice and ripe throughout. . . .
