30DOC, Day 18

A few weeks ago we were enjoying a barbecue at the home of some friends, and at the end of the meal a huge bowl of the most delicious fresh fruit salad was served. Included in the salad were big, juicy chunks of fresh pineapple, and I couldn't seem to get enough of them.

30DOC, Day 16
