Pineapples Aren’t Scary

I finally broke down and bought a whole pineapple the other day y’all and I swear to you I’m never going back!!  It killed me to pay $5 for the single serving little dinky container that was sitting next to the whole ones for $2 but for years I have always though “That thing is intimidating!”

IT IS SOOOOOO EASY to slice a pineapple!!  I swear to you, here is your proof!

Tadaa!!  That is seriously it!  It didn’t poke me, it took all of 5 minutes and I got a huge tupperware container full of pineapple for $2.  We had enough to put in with the ham Easter Sunday, eat a bunch that day and I have had some for lunch every day (it will probably run out tomorrow though, so sad!).

Hope this is helpful to anyone else that may have been intimidated by the pineapple; my life has been wonderfully changed!!
