pine cone up for adoption

Am I the only one who fails to wash my cutting board properly after having chopped onions? I'm guessing not;O) By the way, see that pine cone in the last photo? My mom gave it to me ages ago, and the whole idea was that you keep it some place warm for a couple of weeks after which the pine nuts are supposedly going to start "popping". I had kind of given up on it after waiting for more than two months, but now, my mom says, hers have started popping big time. And apparently it's quite a boisterous affair, the nuts just cracklin', snapplin' and poppin' when you least expect it. I'm kind of hoping that I wont be home when the cone cracks open - I fear my poor old nerves wont be able to deal!
