Why pay for Tucano's?

Tuesday, June 14, 2011

So we've tried this thing where we lay out a menu for the week so we know what groceries we need to make sure and get when we go to The Store or to Costco. It's worked pretty well so far! Last night for family night we made shish kabobs and grilled pineapple - it was SO yummy! Cole had scored some steaks for a cheaper price at work so we used those and bought some veggies to stick on as well. As far as the grilled pineapple goes, I did some research online and found a yummy way to make a marinade for grilled pineapple and it is definitely going to be a keeper in our cookbook! 

Here are some pictures of our yummy dinner and the yummy recipe that I found - enjoy! 

Ingredients:
1/2 pineapple cut into long spears
1 tbsp butter
1/2 c brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon


Directions:
1. Mix cinnamon and brown sugar in a shallow bowl. Heat up the grill to medium heat. Before putting the pineapple down on grill, roll the spears in brown sugar and cinnamon mixture. This will bring out the sweetness and instant caramelizing when they hit the grill.

2. Heat the butter, brown sugar and cinnamon mixture in a pan, till hot and bubbly, brown sugar should be melted.
3. Grill the pineapple spears over direct heat about 2-3 minutes per side, turn occasionally. Each time it turns, baste with glaze. When finished, place on platter and drizzle with remaining mixture of butter, brown sugar and cinnamon..or you may dip it in while eating them.
