Check Out This Recipe for Roasted Pineapple

Last week our local grocery store had pineapples on sale for $1.  I had to grab a few for the youngest of Los Tres Amigos.  This kid is a pineapple fanatic.  Seriously one year Hubby and I gifted him with a pineapple corer as a stocking stuffer and he still proclaims it as his "best gift ever".  Yep, a pineapple corer.   During a recent trip to Mississippi, my cousin shared a recipe for roasted pineapple and I couldn't wait to get home and try it.  It was so simple I kept asking her to repeat it because I've seen recipes for roasted pineapple calling for brown sugar, cardamon, cinnamon and a bounty of other spices, but her recipe called for a single ingredient --> PINEAPPLE.  Yep, one pineapple and that's it.

Jesus is Better Than You Imagined by @JonathanMerritt

Is the God who created us better than the God we've created? After following Jesus for nearly two decades, Jonathan Merritt decides to confront the emptiness of a faith that has become dry, predictable, and rote. In a moment of desperation, he cries out for God to show up and surprise him, and over the next year, God doesn't disappoint. In JESUS IS BETTER THAN YOU IMAGINED , Jonathan shares vulnerable, never-before-shared stories of how he learned to encounter Jesus in unexpected ways. Through a 60-hour vow of silence in a desert monastery, he experiences Jesus in silence. When a friend dies of a rare disease, he sees Jesus in tragedy. Through confronting childhood sexual abuse, Jonathan discovers Jesus in honesty. In an anti-Christian-themed bar, he finds Jesus in sacrilege. And when he's almost kidnapped in Haiti by armed bandits, he experiences Jesus in the impossible. Though Merritt finds himself in places he never dreamed of, he doesn't lose his way. Instea
