Fantastic Fridays: Time for PINEAPPLES!

This Friday's special is for a larger group of people to encourage everyone to invite family and friends over for a fun weekend mini-party! It's almost spring and everyone deserves to relax and have some fun! So start inviting!

Drinks: Kick off with some Party Punch (you can add a splash of alcohol for the adults) and when things start winding up bring out the Hula Dancer shots!

Snacks: As a little pre-snack we suggest the yummy Maple Glazed Meatballs.

Main Dish: Delicious Hawaiian Chicken. A sweet taste to follow those tasty drinks!

Interesting facts about PINEAPPLES:

  • A pineapple is a berry.

  • Most fruits develop in 3-4 months but it takes about 18-24 months for a pineapple to grow to its full size.

  • Originally named "anana", a Caribbean
word for "excellent fruit", the name "pineapple" came from European explorers who thought the fruit looked like a pinecone with flesh like an apple.

  • Christopher Columbus was the first person to introduce pineapples to Europe.

  • One third of the world's pineapple comes from Hawaii.

  • If you want to speed up the ripening of a pineapple so that you can eat it faster, then you can do it by standing it upside down (on the leafy end).

We are happy to have Hanna Skeppner on board this semester as an intern for As a Swedish-American, she has many exciting ideas to add a new twist to our old faves. Hope you enjoy her recipes and tips!
