The Beginning of a New Era....Sister Swap

While on vacation last month in Oregon, my Sister-in-law and I were talking about exchanging more recipes with each other. We thought what better way to do that then on our blog, and include the other sister-in-laws. So I present to you the Sister Swap, where once a month we will post our favorite recipes for the theme that we picked, then link you all to there blogs, so you can share in all of our fun. Enjoy!

This month we chose to do a BBQ theme, since Summer is coming to an end what better way to go out with a bang than Barbecuing.

Brian and I got a new BBQ for him for Fathers Day this last June, and it has certainly not disappointed our barbecuing needs for the Summer. Our two favorites things were Grilled pineapple. Oh My this was so good! Just imagine warm gooey brown sugar grilled into fresh juicy pineapple. Did I get your attention? Hopefully.

You can make this side with anything that you are grilling, or you can just eat it plain since it is so good! We loved having it with seasoned grilled salmon, and grilled zucchini, and it did not disappoint. Try it I know you will love it.

Now onto the recipes......

Grilled Pineapple

1 whole fresh pineapple(no canned pineapple)
3 Tbl. brown sugar or more depending on size of pineapple
1 tsp. cinnamon

1.Cut top of pineapple off
2.Cut outside of pineapple off until you have one beautiful looking fresh yellow pineapple
3.Cut pineapple into about 1 inch discs; how many discs you have will depend on how big your pineapple is
4. Mix brown sugar and cinnamon in small bowl
5. Lay pineapple onto baking sheet and sprinkle both sides of pineapple liberally with sugar mixture
6. Let sit for about 15 to 20 minutes for pineapple to start getting juicy, and sugar starts absorbing into the pineapple
7. Grill pineapple about 3-4 minutes on each side or until you have nice grill marks on pineapple
