Pineapple is not one of those fruits that I usually buy whole because I hate cutting them up. But I happened to get one in the beautiful fruit basket my boss sent me for graduation. I also remembered that I had a fancy schmancy pineapple cutter that I think I only used once and not very successfully as I recall. This time though it sliced right through the pineapple by just giving it a little pressure and then I was able to cut it into beautiful pineapple rings that were sweet and juicy. For dinner since I was in the tropical mood after all that pineapple slicing I pulled a package of Hula burgers out of the freezer. The ingredient list on these things is long but for the most part pretty wholesome. Plus they taste yummy. I served them up on a potato roll with some sweet potato fries and a pile of golden pineapple. The Hula Burger box says, “Imagine yourself sitting down for dinner with friends at a festive oceanfront restaurant in Maui, so I just pictured our awesome barbeques we had last year on the beach in Maui and pretended I was there again. My backyard isn’t exactly a beachfront but I can pretend.
