So remember how I told you guys I was selected to be an Official POM Dinner Party Host? The party has to take place sometime next week between Monday the 8th and Sunday the 14th, so I was expecting to receive some stuff in the mail any day. Well, yesterday was that day…
I had no idea they would be sending so much stuff! I knew they were sending 2 cases of POMs, but I figured the cases would hold 6 or 12 each… however, they each held 22!
Aka I received 44 pomegranates in the mail yesterday!!
I’m not going to lie – they didn’t seem to transport too well. A lot of the box was died with pom juice and there are a few broken in there, but most of them held together OK and since I have 44, there’s a little room for things like that to happen. 🙂
On top of the POMs, they sent a POM Apron:
A little inappro but I love it.
A POM cutting board…
And gift bags for all the dinner party guests…
Wowza! So much stuff.
I wasted no time showing Charlotte and Nora how to open a pomegranate the right way (over water so there’s no mess!)
And we used some in our salads for last night’s Kids in the Kitchen evening.
I also used some in this morning’s breakfast.
- ~1/2 cup nonfat greek yogurt
- 1/4 cup rolled oats
- 1/4 cup Flax Plus Pumpkin Granola
- pomegranate seeds
- chia seeds
Pomegranate seeds are just stunning.
They make me feel so fancy to eat. Especially when I open them the right way so I and everything I own don’t end up stained red. 🙂
Are you a pomegranate fan? What’s your favorite way to use ‘em?
