I am so happy to be here with a new edition of Give a Girl a Grill. I love to grill. I mean love, love, love it. I will not let hubs anywhere near my grill. Ya, you heard me. MY GRILL! It is mine. All mine! He can go water the flowers or something. The grill belongs to me.
Most days I can be found grilling in the summer time. It saves our house from getting swelteringly (what? it's a word!) hot. Our a/c blows, but not in a good way. When we bought my folks place after my dad passed away we remembered him cheaping out on the a/c unit he put in. We put one in at the same time in our old house. When you walked into our place it was like stepping into Alaska. When you walked into dad's place it was like stepping into a volcano. All to save a mere $300. I swear when we have some extra moolah lying around I'd love to upgrade it. But seriously, who has thousands of dollars just lying around. Hey Oprah, can you loan me some moolah? I'm hot girl. Do a friend a solid.
Okay so this is a quick treat you can whip up for the kiddies. Or the adulties. Whoever you want to whip up an 8 minute snack for. Okay, that's a lie. It took 2 minutes to cut and glaze it. So it's more like a 10 minute snack. Okay, so maybe 12 tops! So have at it folks. You will want to hug me, and kiss me and squeeze me all over. But I won't let you. Cuz Lunie don't hug remember! Now get your mitts off me and go grill dangit!
Grilled Pineapple with Cinnamon, Nutmeg and Vanilla
- Preheat your grill.
- Peel and core your pineapple.
- Cut it into big pieces. I cut mine in 4 pieces.
- In a bowl whisk together your orange juice,vanilla brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg.
- Brush half the glaze on both sides of your pineapple.Set aside remaining glaze.
- Turn one side of the grill off. Turn the other side on low.
- Brush the grill with oil to prevent sticking.
- Place pineapple on grill.
- Cook for about 4 minutes on each side. Brush glaze on after flipping.
- Remove and cut up.
- Serve with a big old sweet, cinnamon-y smile.
See, easy peasy and pineapple squeezy! Anyone can do this. It's a great light snack for the kids while you're chilling by the pool. It's also good for other things because you can use this in other dishes. Which I did. Which I will share with you later this week. Which I am now laughing hysterically about as you sit there wondering what I did with it. Which is where I will leave you hanging.
Toodles and smoochies! xx
You are so darn funny! I promise I won't hug you if you grill me some pineapple...and I won't touch your grill either! What a yummy treat~
Sounds like a deal to me. Pinkie swear!
I love love love grilled fruits - especially pineapple! This sounds so tasty Kim =)
Terri @ that's some good cookin'
Grilled pineapple. Oh, oh, oh. Grilled pineapple. Swoon. Grilled pineapple with cinnamon and nutmeg. Double swoon. I am adding this to my Fourth of July menu. Forget the ribs and burgers; I'm going straight for the pineapple.
Oh how I love grilled pineapple, but I've never sprinkled anything on it but sugar. Love the other good stuff that you add! I'll be trying this with some vanilla sugar that I received from Canada today. 🙂
Thanks lady. I sure hope you love that vanilla sugar. I have 6 more packages to send over the next week. I really need to get a US post box so I can just cross over and ship stuff. Let me know how you like the sugar. It's great for baking. I use it on everything. And the salt is amazing for baking too.
