Olympic Gold
Feb. 23, 2006
The caviar party postponed due to Walters schedule, the rest of the gang decided that a Woman’s Figure Skating Finals Dinner was in order. We agreed that each household would bring a dish representative of the Olympic Games. Sarah immediately announced her intention to make pizza to honor Italy. Jen quickly called dibs on a Caesar Salad. What clever side dish could I come up with?

Savory Olympic Pineapple Rings On The Grill
1 Fresh Pineapple
1tbsp. Lemon Flavored Olive Oil
1 tsp. Rosemary, finely chopped
12 oz Orange Juice
1 sm. can Chicken Broth
2 tbsp Butter
Fresh Ground Black Pepper
Salt to taste

In separate pots, reduce the chicken broth and the orange juice by ½. Combine broth and orange juice, add the black pepper and reduce to ½ again. Add butter and reduce until the sauce reaches a thick, syrupy consistency. Meanwhile, Peel, core and slice the pineapple into rings ¾” thick. Brush with the olive oil and sprinkle with the rosemary. Place on a medium heat grill and cook, turning once, for ten minutes or until soft. Pour the juice mixture on to a large oval plate. Place three of the rings side by side along the top of the plate; arrange the remaining two under them. Sprinkle with salt and serve.
