Simple Pineapple Boats
Wow! What a spread! Sounds wonderful!
I'd probably delete some (biscuits and gravy, egg & cheese puff), but that's because it's hard enough for me to get things done on time, and you're talking a LOT of food!
What are pineapple boats?
1 medium pineapple
Fresh raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, halved seedless red or green grapes and or sliced strawberries (or any seasonal fruits)
Orange honey yogurt sauce (optional; recipe below)
Use a sharp knife to quarter the fresh pineapple lengthwise leaving crown intact. Remove core from each pineapple quarter.
use the knife to loosen fruit from peel. slice fruit crosswise into 1/4 slices alternately slide pineapple slices out in opposite directions. garnish each with the fresh fruit. Serve with or drizzle orange honey yogurt sauce (optional)
Orange-Honey Yogurt Sauce:
In a small bowl, combine one 6 -8 ounce carton vanilla lowfat yogurt, 1 tablespoon honey, 1/2 teaspoon finely shredded orange peel or 1/4 teaspoon dried orange zest, (in a pinch I have used 1 tablespoon frozen concentrate orange juice and this works too) and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla. transfer sauce to a serving bowl. cover and chill for at least 30 minutes (can make day ahead). mkes 1 1/4 c.
