I go to the grocery store with a weekly menu planned out and a list made for only the items I need to make my menu. I rarely stray from my list (unless my husband is with me, and then all bets are off – he is as bad as having a 4 year old along). But last week there was a table of fresh pineapple. They beckoned to me with promises of Hawaii memories, or they would if I had in Hawaii memories, but alas all I have are Hawaii fantasies. Their siren song was strong and I succumbed.
But as I said before, I had a menu planned out. Nowhere in my menu did it mention pineapple. I am totally boring and rarely stray from my given path, so even though I found recipes using pineapple salsa for this and that, I needed to add pineapple to the menu without changing the menu.
So I simply cut it up, spread it on a baking sheet, sprinkled it with a little brown sugar, and roasted it at 400 till it had slightly caramelized, artfully piled it on a plate, told it to say “cheese”, snapped it’s pic, and ate it for dessert. Yum.
This will be my entry for Foodie Friday at Designs by Gollum!
