Monday Musings…

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  Our Easter was lovely and we got to celebrate Saturday and Sunday both, which was very nice.  That’s what happens when you have a lot of family 🙂

I tried the Pineapple Casserole that my friend, Vicky, gave me and it was a huge hit.  Who knew?  Don’t be nervous, it’s not MY recipe!  Here it is if you’re curious:

1 20 oz. can crushed pineapple in juice

1-1/4 cups sugar (it called for 2 cups, but was fine with less)

4 cups bread cubes (I used white, but I think any bread would be good)

1/2 cup milk

3 eggs

1/2 cup butter, diced

Cube the bread and put it into a casserole dish.  Pour pineapple and juice over bread.  Beat the eggs and milk together, add sugar and pour over the bread.  Sprinkle butter on top, then mix in.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 40-50 minutes, stirring occasionally.  It was delish!  Maybe next time I’ll try Spenda and see how it is.  I would think it would work well…

 

And now I’m off to see my personal trainer — yay!

Pineapple Casserole…

QUESTION:  Does anyone make a pineapple dish with Ritz crackers and is it really good?  I keep hearing it’s easy and fabulous and I like pineapple but it just sounds weird to me.  It’s got cheese and butter and cracker crumbs and pineapple and maybe it’s a Southern thing but hubby is from Tennessee and his mama never made this.  I’m thinking I might try it for Easter dinner.
