Grilled Pineapple

I didn't realize that Sig's MM Grill-It event had a deadline of 15th August. (Monthly Mingle is the brainchild of Meeta). For some reason I thought it was only due at the end of the month so had to hurry up and post this.



My entry is very simple... I've been meaning to grill some fruit for such a long time and finally got down to grilling some pineapple using my cast iron stove top grill pan ... these slices were about 3/4 inch and were a bit more tart than usual. I was fine eating them as is but my husband has quite a bit of a sweet tooth so for his, I spread a very thin coating of butter on the pineapple slices while it was still hot from the grill pan and sprinkled some brown sugar on top. The house smelt like I was baking a pineapple upside down cake :)

I also made some pesto and roasted vegetable paninis (used the grill pan for this as well) and we enjoyed a tasty grilled dinner.
