Pomegranates

December 20, 2010 · 2 comments

Pomegranates are tiny gems of summer audacity, still ripe in vitamin-rich bright berry cheekiness. They exhibit a delightfully bratty tendency towards explosions of ruby-red splatter down the front of your best white shirt.

Pomegranates keep one humble.

(A scrubbing paste of Oxy-Clean and ice cold water seem to work best, BTW.)

So if you find yourself lacking in Holiday Giddy-Up and/or a spiritual insight into what Christmas is about, just have an incredibly delightful man peel a perfect mandarin orange and mix in a handful of July jewels for you.

Instant fix.

Rick and Kathy,
Hope you had a wonderful Christmas! Quick tip – did you know if you cut the top off the pom you can see the sections. Then put it in a bowl or sink filled with water and open it underneath the surface. The white stuff floats and you can separate the seeds easily and save the OxyClean for other uses!

We need to see an updated puppy post 🙂
