Welcome to the new RoL Pinterest Party (formerly Making It Count.) Join me every 2nd and 4th Tuesday as we link up and share how we made, cooked, baked, crafted, did, or created one of the pins on our Pinterest boards.
Not on Pinterest? No problem. Link-up your own creation to inspire us so we can pin in to our own boards. It can be a recipe, sewing project, Catholic craft, homeschool project, organizing/ homemaking tip, themed birthday party, whatever you’d like.
Don’t have a post ready? The link-up will be open for a week so there’s still time. Plus, feel free to link up a new post or an older post that hasn’t had much traffic lately.
Don’t have a blog? No problem. Post your photo and a description on the RoL Favebook page. 🙂

At the beginning of the month I posted about How to Choose Ripe Fruit. I experimented with buying a kiwi, mango and watermelon. I made a comment about only eating canned pineapple and Andrea encouraged me to try a fresh one. I read her post about cutting a pineapple and went for it. I had a mango that was really ripe and needed to be eaten so I decided to make Six Sister’s Pineapple Mango Salsa.
I started with cutting my fruit then I followed the recipe.
1 mango, peeled and chopped
1 cup fresh pineapple, diced (or 1 cup pineapple tidbits, drained)
1 roma tomato, diced
1 teaspoon dried cilantro (or 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro)
2 green onions, sliced
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon lemon juice (Note: I actually left of the lemon.)
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced very small
“Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Store covered in the fridge. If you let this sit for a couple of hours before you eat it, the flavors really meld together and taste amazing!”

I followed the directions and it really was tasty! I served it with teriyaki chicken and the combination of sweet from the fruit and heat from the pepper was delicious. I didn’t use the seeds of the pepper so it was not too hot for the kids.
My tip for de-seeding chilies? Use a pair of gloves! I keep a box of latex type gloves in the kitchen and always use them when I cook with chili to keep the juice from getting on my fingers because that would be no bueno!

Now it’s your turn.
1. Choose your creation, share about it and snap a photo if you can.
2. In your post, link back the original blogger/idea, rather than your Pinterest pin. That way credit goes to the proper person. 🙂 (But feel free to add your Pinterest profile link so we can follow you!)
3. Add a link back here so others can play along. Here is the html code:

4. Link up below. Make sure you’re sending us to your actual post, and not to your general blog address.
You have a week to post your link, so if you can’t get things done by Tuesday, no worries, put it up when you can. We’ll be here. Have fun!
