Hello and bet you think I am surfing on the water.   Nope, not I and besides we have no water here to do that.  You have to have some big honkin' waves for that.  Waves that mean business.  There were some in Hawaii we saw years ago, those were waves let me tell you.    That is reserved for Piper in Florida.  I think on down the line I had posted a painting I did of her preforming her amazing talent.  

I was surfing my cookbooks.  Always trying new recipes even after 51 years of marriage and started to look for side dishes beside the potato (yum) type. The pasta recipes that Eldon does NOT like at all.  The meats they are down pretty pat but the sides or go withs as I call them, I am always on the look out.   I pulled out a cookbook I hadn't looked at in a while and found one with pineapple.  Eldon's favorite fruit I do believe.  Remember I make him Pineapple upside down cakes ?    Well I came to a screeching halt on that page and thought TA DA I have to try this.   It had pretty simple ingredients so to the kitchen I marched like a good trooper.   Of course I had to change a little thing or two but on the whole it is a winner and a repeat performance in our home.

Here you go, I know you can't smell it but it was yummy.  I think I will put it in my recipes here on the side bar.   

Now tomorrow and Sunday the weather is suppose to be a high of 36 degrees so I can already hear my oven clicking on and saying OK I am ready to bake.  I know that is what you do when it is cold.  I certainly don't want to disappoint the oven now do I?

I have been doing some art work today and will let you see tomorrow, I don't want to wear your eyes out on here.

So this is what is going on in my world today.  Thanks for stopping by.  xoxox


  1. Yummy, yummy...this looks really good Annette. I am sure it is different from the apple crumble I bake, but the surface is very similar. Maybe we should exchange recipes ? Big hug!
    P.S. Eldon is a very lucky husband.

    1. Sounds good to me Jane, The apple crumble is so good. I think this was suppose to be a side dish like vegies but we ate as both. Desert-yum and side dish-yum. Exchanging recipes oh yes that would be fun. xo

  2. I can't imagine a husband who doesn't like potatoes or pasta!! George can hardly get through the day without one or the other and he is as skinny as can be!! I could almost smell your baking!! Looks so good.

    1. Hi Janet, oh I wrote that so it looks like hubby doens't like potatoes, he loves them but I try not to make them all the time just a big part of the time. Come on over and yo can try the pineapple side dish. xo

  3. The smell of apple crumble ,and chocolate cake my favorites...
