Pineapple princess

We watched the Super Bowl yesterday with our friends Todd and Joyce. Our moaning and groaning was only partially because the Steelers lost. It was mostly because we were super-stuffed. We had enough food for an army – we could have had the whole team over!
I tried a new recipe that I thought was delicious – pineapple pie. Lisa had sent me the recipe ( and I thought, why not? I love pineapple: upside down cake, on cottage cheese, in a fruit salad, one chunk after another from a fruit tray, on ice cream. I craved it when I was pregnant with Lisa but I’d never tried, much less heard of, a pineapple pie. It was so easy and so good.
I took a picture last year on our Groundhog’s day beach trip of a slice of dried pineapple on the counter in one of the bathrooms. Somebody had left it there and someone else had tried to use it as soap probably before they put their glasses on. They said it was frustrating because it didn’t suds up!

We’re enjoying a taste of spring: the snowdrops are starting to bloom and the daffodils are poking their heads up. We’ve been enjoying a few days of nice weather and are thankful that we’re not living on the east coast. Have a good week.


  1. I love any pie, and I love pineapple so I'm going to check that recipe link out! Thanks Lynn!

  2. That's funny about you craving pineapple when you were pregnant with me. I've been craving anything citrus - oranges, lemons, pineapples. As long as it's fruity and acidic, I want it. Weird. Glad you liked the recipe - hope I get to try a piece some time!

  3. PS - Love that someone tried to use the dried pineapple as soap. HA!
