the clouds went away and the evening turned lovely. ran to the grocery and The Home Depot after work (was hoping to post about all of the new Martha Stewart Living paint colors-but they are STILL not out!)
trimmed off the ends, then steamed for just under 5 minutes (if you like it softer, go longer). i really like making these quick, veggie meals on Mondays (since i always have laundry to fold before Gossip Girl begins, and if i wait it will be too late for dinner).
was going to plant the new pineapple top....but i need to let the bottom dry out a little (i found new instructions that are a bit more complicated than the first ones i found). removed the leaves off of about 3/4 of an inch. in a day or so i can begin to root it.
