Fun Pineapple Porcupine

Pineapple Porcupine

Ahhhhh, had a terrible mother moment and realised I’d forgotten to make a share plate for Joe to take to a social occasion and had literally 10 mins to rectify my “unmotherliness”.

Apologise for the quality of the photos as it was a mad dash from start to finish.

Here’s my fun food, share plate, a Pineapple Porcupine (and yes he was appreciated, devoured and finished!) phew, I am redeemed.
