I made a meal the last week of October for a gal in our neighborhood who underwent hip replacement surgery. She had the other hip worked on a couple of years ago, and this one in October. I actually ended up halving the meal and sharing the other half with some other neighbors of ours that used to live across the street. She had helped me tremendously with our garage sale, so I thought I would bless them with a meal also.
I made up Easy Chicken and Yellow Rice, Green Beans, Pear Salad Halves, Marinated Veggie Salad, some homemade bread and this delectable dessert. I think this was the second or third dessert I’ve given to my neighbors with pineapple as the main ingredient. They loved this recipe enough to want to make it for family when visiting them in early November. 🙂
