Boy oh boy – do I have a delicious recipe to share!
The star of dinner was Pineapple Casserole. Although it’s not the healthiest dish, it would be a great meal to bring to a potluck! You could probably make it a little healthier by halving the butter and reducing the sugar.
My mom got the recipe from a friend. Here it is!
- 1/2 20 oz. can of crushed pineapple (drained; save the juice)
- 1 20 oz. can of chunky pineapple (drained; save the juice)
- 3 tablespoons flour
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 2 cups crumbled Ritz crackers (1 whole sleeve)
- 1/2 cup melted butter (1 stick)
- Drain pineapples, reserving 6 tablespoons of juice.
- Combine juice, flour and sugar to make a paste.
- Stir in pineapples and cheese.
- Pour mixture in a shallow casserole dish (this recipe makes a 9 X 9 dish)
- Toss cracker crumbs with the melted butter and spoon over the pineapple.
- Bake in oven at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
I had a side of the Pineapple Casserole with the rest of dinner.
I had a serving of baked tofu (marinated in mustard, honey, soy sauce, and sesame seeds), green beans, two tomatoes, and 1/2 cup brown rice.
Dessert was a little piece of chocolate:
And earlier this afternoon, I had a Oh She Glows bar. Angela is really onto something with these granola bars… you will see them in every grocery store in North America someday soon, I think! This flavor is particularly awesome.
My mom and I are going to snuggle together on the couch and watch a movie! I’m setting my alarm extremely early in hopes that I’ll be able to get some writing down…. I keep getting bogged down with other (important) tasks – like the Healthy Living Summit! We hope to be able to reveal the date + location soon! 🙂
What’s your favorite potluck dish?
