Some info on fresh pineapple

I adore fresh, sweet pineapple. We lived in Taiwan for 2 years when I was a child and a favorite memory was Wednesday dinner. The chef would serve authentic shrimp fried rice w/ pineapple picked fresh/ripe out of the field for dessert. I remember watching him cut the pineapple and it was always yellow on the outside. That is how I learned to pick the pineapple that had the most yellow, with no green.

I am working on a fresh pineapple/banana frozen whip and encountered only green pineapples. As they ripen from the bottom up, I picked the one w/ the most yellow on the bottom. They should also have that fresh pineapple smell.

They say that a pineapple picked green does not ripen. I left it on the counter for 2 days w/ no yellowing. I placed it in a plastic bag and loosely tied the top. 2 days later my pineapple is totally yellow and smells amazingly ripe. It tastes like the fresh pineapple from my childhood! Pineapple heaven.

Tonight I'm going to make BEANS & SAUSAGE SOUP - OR NOT. Preston likes his as soup and I like mine over rice. Yummy and lots of protein!

Last night, today, and tonight..:)

Last night I picked up some zucchini and summer squash from the neighbors around the bend( they put it outside on a shelf w/a free sign), as we didn't have a garden this year( next year..hubby didn't till..:( but will at the end of summer..) soooo..last night I made beer battered zucchini and summer squash and what I'm calling beer battered pork bites:) yummy..no pork bites left..lol..I took a boneless pork roast from the liberal beef meat market just across the border in nh..and sliced it along the tied rope( twine), saved out 2 pieces, cut the rest up into bites..really good..:)
Today for supper, I bough last night at out specialty meats section at our shaws grocery store some beef tenderloin..3 small pieces, total weight just over a pound.., heated up some leftover asparagus from the other night, and some leftover mashed potatoes as well :) steak all gone..potatoes almost gone and asparagus Almost gone..:(

Then I threw together my butter pie crust and put my apple pie together ..while that was cooking..I made 2 loaves of zucchini bread and 12 zucchini bread muffins..threw those into the oven as soon as pie was fine..now I am done..lol
Hubby ate 3 muffins right off while still hot..( the only way to eat yummy quick breads in my opinion..lol..

Spanakopita for last night here of my friend from Bangkok

The phyllo's out to thaw and I have a couple bags of spinach so it's Greek tonight. Yesterday, we took Somporn to a local Asiangrocery store so she could help me pick out some curry pastes, etc. So expect us to be having some good Thai curries this winter!

Wichita... Din, Din

Burgers on the Grill

1/2 sirloin, 1/2 Italian sausage... with mozzarella and tomato sauce. Some chips, and a bottle of chardonnay to round it off... Outside by the pond listening to an evening chorus from the frogs.

Got a couple of friends over.. A perfect end to a perfect day...

I hope everyone is having a brilliant Friday afternoon (((HUGS)))
