Several years ago, a dear friend served this dish at a birthday celebration,
and I have been a devotee ever since.
If you like a cross between a cobbler/bread pudding/pineapple concoction ,
and you are serving ham,
you should try this.
1 can (20 oz) crushed pineapple, undrained
1 stick of butter, melted
1 c. sugar
2 eggs, beaten
3 c. bread cubes
1 c. mini marshmallows
dash of mace
Gently combine all ingredients except bread cubes.
Add the bread cubes and toss lightly.
Pour into a 13x9 inch lightly greased pan and bake at 350 degrees
for 45 minutes- or until golden.
Buy several acorn squash,
and do NOT tally the price.
It won’t make sense , and it is expensive.
Yesterday at HEB I entered into
a moral dilemma about whether or not to buy
acorn squash this year.
As I have shared before, I am a simple woman with simple needs
I did not buy them.
I will probably change my mind.
If you do-
poke a hole into each acorn squash and microwave them for about 10 minutes.
Remove them from the microwave- again carefully (they are hot)-
cut them in half and scoop out the seeds.
Place the halves on a baking sheet.
Place a pat of butter in each half, sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar
or whatever sweetener you like.
Heat in the oven and serve.
Tomorrow I will be reading my turkey thawing instructions.
Wish me luck-
or should I say,
wish my FAMILY luck!
My grandsons are here and tomorrow morning we are
having breakfast tacos. Life is good.
