I guess I wouldn't be considered a short order cook, but a short cut cook. I've made pineapple upside cake and I like crushed pineapple with cottage cheese but did I ever buy a fresh pineapple and try to figure out how to peel it? No, I didn't, I bought canned pineapple. John is having some surgery on his eye the first week in September. I've heard of people having a weight put in their eyelid and originally that was what he was having but after seeing a new doctor he wants to lift the lower skin under his eye so it closes properly when he sleeps. They say his best eye doesn't close all the way at night and it can get infected sooo in reading all the instructions for prep for the surgery he is supposed to eat FRESH pineapple to prevent bruising. We just checked them out at Walmart and on the way out he ask the greeter how are we supposed to peel this thing. She said go back to produce and if there is someone there they will core it for you. They did, neat as a pin, and in it's own plastic container. We have such nice people working at our Walmart. I can imaging me trying to handle that peeling and how it would have looked. Speaking of grocery stores have you ever been to a grocery store with a parking garage and an escalator and an elevator. A friend took me to one in San Antonio yesterday. My goodness I felt like Jed Clampitt come to town.
