After grilling all day long, I thought I would come home and – grill.  What can I say?  I’m a glutton for punishment.

Actually, it’s pretty much the easiest way to get dinner on the table – and the least amount of mess. (Not that I clean, mind you, but I do like to think of others from time to time…)

Pork tenderloin grilled with strawberry bbq sauce sitting atop grilled pineapple – straight from the Dole can – and a drizzle of more bbq sauce on top.  Yes, I could have bought a fresh pineapple – and it really would have been excellent – but I bought 5 cans of pineapple on sale a while back and do need to use them up.  It sorta defeats the purpose of getting a  deal on something if ya don’t use it, right?!?

The rice was cooked in the pineapple juice from the can, a bit of water, and a pinch each of allspice and ginger, salt and pepper.  I toyed with the idea of adding some coconut, and then changed my mind. – I thought it might end up being too dessert-like.  And green beans fresh from the freezer because my fresh produce is dwindling.  I have to go shopping Monday.

It was a 20 minute meal that took forever because the charcoal chimney just wasn’t cooperating today.  It took three attempts to finally get it going. Oh well…  I still like it better than the gas grill.

And…  we have slices of Leslie’s wedding cake for dessert, tonight.

Life is good.
