Start with a whole pineapple. Cut off the top and bottom, and then slice off the skin.
Mix together 2 cups of sugar (I used Splenda) and 1/4 cup cinnamon. Roll the naked pineapple around in the cinnamon sugar until he is nice and sticky. (I had a bunch of leftover cinnamon sugar. Next time I would only make up half the amount.)
Wrap the pineapple in aluminum foil, put it on a baking sheet, and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
When it is warmed through, take him out of the aluminum foil, stand him upright, and slice vertically around the core. Throw out the core, slice the pineapple thinly, and serve warm.Trust me, you will love this!!
Second, Grandma’s Buttery Mashed Potatoes. Because no Autumn meal is complete without mashed potatoes!
Add 1/2 cup butter, and 1 cup evaporated milk.
I didn’t pay attention, and added a whole can of evaporated milk, instead of just 1 cup. So things got a little runny. Lucky for me, I had some instant mashed potato flakes in the pantry. I added some of these, and things perked right up.Of course, I could have boiled some more potatoes to correct the runny problem. But I wasn’t feeling that patient.
Seriously? Some of the best mashed potatoes I have ever tasted!
