My household is a big consumer of pineapple. My husband doesn't tire himself of having pineapple for breakfast every morning. Because already cut pineapple is 3 times the price of one full pineapple, I always buy one to two pineapples every week. They ripen while we eat the ripe ones from the previous week.
Zucchini has become over the years one of my favorite vegetables. So much so that two years ago, we decided to grow vegetables during the summer.

Yesterday was Labor Day which means we are unofficially entering autumn aka fall. I don't know for you, but it is my favorite season. I love the colors and it the start of so many things here in the US. It's the start of the school year which was a little crazy for us as my daughter just started high school!
