Both husband and son got their bucks so we have a happy home!! There is already talk about next year. I think planning the hunt is as much or more fun than the actual hunt!
Diane Watters, a member of our exercise group, brought this spiced hot fruit to share as part of her birthday treat one morning! I thought it would be perfect to make over the holidays! It can be made the night before, feeds a large group, can be kept warm in a crock pot and best of all it was very good! At least one of our sons and family stays over so this is going to be on my menu. Thanks Dianne for sharing the recipe!

2 cans pineapple chunks (1- 20 oz & 1- 8 oz) drained and save juice
