I usually just wait till a full meal post to do snacks, but this was just so “fun!” I went to Crunch for a 45minutes Pilates class which was wonderful, I feel so much better when I’m working my muscles! I can’t really do anything on my foot but this non-impact class can still leave you sweating.
A is sick so to cheer him up I bought some cocoa and pie. A is a fanatic for storebought pumpkin (punkin he says) pie. I tried a small slice to be festive with him.
Frankly though, it was storebought pumpkin pie, so I ate a bite and threw the rest away.
The other day while I was at the store my grocery had Pom brand pomegranates on sale. When I was a kid someone shared a pomegranate with me at lunch and I liked it. I like Pom’s tea, why not try the whole fruit? So I bought this innocent looking guy.
I distinctly remember seeing someone on Iron Chef cut one of these in half and then whack the seeds into a bowl with the backside of a spoon. Not so much. 25minutes later I reached this scene of carnage.
And a satisfyingly large bowl of seeds.
For those of you who’ve never had pomegranate whole, getting the seeds out if you cut it in half is like finding your way through a maze. And the flesh feels, and smells, exactly like Iceberg lettuce! I actually hated the fruit, eating it made me shudder, so I threw away my spoils. If you would like to try on your own, I recommend heading to this site first.
So, I’m hungry (and wasteful) and it’s time for me to have another go at a snack and my work. Good luck with your snacking!
