Sometimes Matt gets creative with the fruit bowl...

At least it made for a pretty display on the counter!

And if you've never tried grilled pineapple, you should try it immediately.  It is absolutely delicious!  Here's how you make it...Cut the pineapple into rings (remove the core & skin first).  Honestly, Matty always does this part so I'm not exactly sure the best way to accomplish this task, and I'm not even sure that the outside of the pineapple is called skin.  Anyway, that's not important, but, once you've figured it out, mix some melted butter (a couple tablespoons), brown sugar (maybe a 1/4 to 1/2 cup), and a good squirt of honey in a large ziploc baggie.  Throw in the pineapple rings & squish it around until the rings are covered in the mixture.  Don't squish it so hard that you break the rings.  Place the pineapple rings on the grill & grill until they turn nicely brown.  Eat while won't regret it.  Yum!  The first time Matt and I had this was in Mexico, and the pineapple had been grilled rotisserie style, but we don't have a rotisserie, so we cut it into rings. 

This is a nice recipe to get you in the mood for summer...since the days are getting warmer & are now longer thanks to "springing forward."
