Toss the pineapple pieces with the cinnamon and vanilla bean pieces. Seal that foil up TIGHT, place on a cookie sheet, and bake (or alternately, place directly on a medium grill) at 350 for 45 min or so.

The pineapple gets infused with the vanilla and cinnamon, and sort of soft and caramelly. Mmmm.

Now you can't say I've never told you!
Where do you find whole vanilla beans?

Any grocery store with a regular line of McCormick's stuff should have them. They're a thin brown ugly little seedpod & look like something you'd find on the ground under a cigar tree. I'm trying to remember if Trader Joe's carries them, and I think they do, and if so, I'd get them from there. Penzey's is of course another good source.

Had one for the very first time this year! They are seriously awesome. I saw a recipe for a shishkabab made with these. So, I made it.

I used a peach that wasn't soft yet. Chopped it and tossed it with cinnamon. OMgoodness!

Why no conditioner?

And back to the topic of peaches. So just some cooking spray and throw them right on the grill? I have a peach tree that is going to need eating soon!

And on the top of grilling things, my fav new food is grilled corn on the cob. Same thing, bit of a oil and throw it right on the grill. Seems like a no brainer - but just in case no one has tried it. Delicious and only takes a few minutes.

I have never, ever, not even one time regretted not eating something. Never. Not once. Turns out telling yourself no feels marvelous. No deprivation passing up on *those foods.* The deprivation is EATING them and remaining overweight. You've got to raise your standards; requiring more from yourself. Challenge yourself. Push yourself. Work past the discomfort. Every time you do it, it gets easier and easier - Rockinrobin
