Hi, Michelle. My family loved this 'new' Pineapple Casserole! As I predicted, everyone wanted a copy of the recipe. Also, a vote was taken regarding your agreement with Julia Child and Paula Deen - using a little butter could never be a bad thing. All agreed, the Ritz Crackers are supposed to be a 'butter' flavored cracker - if the crushed crackers need to absorb a bit more melted butter, it simply can't be a bad thing! The flavor combining with the filling of the 'casserole' is a new treat for the taste buds! The vote for a recipe to include in all upcoming events, was won with a 9 pro to 0 against - by your Pineapple Casserole!!!!!! YUMMO!!!!!

Thanks again, for a totally unconventional winner at a ham dinner! They do not like sweet potatoes mixed with pineapple, therefore, this dish is refreshing and tickles the taste buds without taking anything away from enjoyment of the ham [it was brought up that it would serve as well with our favorite roast beef or roast pork]. I mentioned that you had suggested it could also serve as a dessert - the main feeling was that it was delicious as a side dish and too good to wait for - for after dinner! I think it could be slipped in as dessert on a hot summer's evening [maybe with a scoop of vanilla ice cream?], chilled for a few hours to cool it down?

Michelle please thank your mother-in-law for sharing this devine dish with you [therefore, us]. You are the best for posting this for those of us who rely on JAP for inspiring new recipes. Many, many thanks to you! Jean C. LOL :-)

Oh and because I agree with Julia Child I usually use a little bit more butter. LOL!
