Aidell's Sausage Fresh Stir fry w/ freshly grilled Pineapple.

I was walking around the grocery store last week, perusing the meat department when I came across one of our favorite sausages and to my utter surprise I learned they were Gluten Free.  We have purchased Aidells Sausages in our former eating life all the time because they were delicious-- and to learn that they're also something my husband can eat scores them Major Points. 

Last week I made up a recipe that turned out super tasty for dinner.

First I started with some Fresh Pineapple.  I had decided I wanted to make some grilled pineapple and I wanted it to look all fancy with the core cut out of the middle.  I was contemplating how to achieve this when I thought of this really cool kitchen gadget I have.  It's a biscuit/donut cutter that my husband bought me a few years ago.  I occurred to me that if I popped out the donut portion, I could use it to core my pineapple.  Worked like a charm.

I followed this recipe for my grilled pineapple.  But I used coconut oil (instead of butter to make it GF), which I thought would be really brilliant-- except that I didn't take into account that once I put my mixture into the fridge, the coconut oil would quickly solidify and not really adhere to the pineapple.


That's okay, it still worked and turned out yummy!  I cooked it on our George Foreman Grill.


For my Stir fry I first cooked all my vegetables in coconut oil, rice vinegar and teriyaki sauce.


Then I cut up and cooked the sausages.


Mixed it all together and it made for a super tasty meal.
