Enjoying a pomegranate.

To eat a pomegranate, you have to A. Be very determined and B. Have a lot of time on your hands.
Today, while watching the boys, I decided to eat a pomegranate. Thankfully the boys were entertaining themselves.

First, you have to cut it open. Which usually results in cutting a bunch of the seeds open. And then you get pomegranate juice all over your hands/the counter/the floor. Be prepared for that.

Then you take the pieces and put them into a bowl of water. Then all the yellow skin part floats to the top and the seeds go to the bottom. You still have to kind of break them apart, but CAREFULLY. Otherwise the juice thing happens from the previous step.

Number three, remove as much of the skin as you can.

4. Rinse the seeds in a colander. I usually have to return them to a bowl of water a few times to get all the yellow parts off.

Lastly, pour into an empty bowl and enjoy!

PS- Brody just woke up from a nap and is permanently attached to my side, making it hard to write a blog post.
