This weekend will be a very bittersweet weekend for me and my family.
My Grammie would have been 93 on Sunday (3/20) and this will be
the first birthday since she has been gone.
I've really been dreading writing this post because I didn't know how I could get through it without crying. The loss of Grammie still feels very fresh and I miss her tremendously.
I know that she would be mad though if we didn't go on with our lives because she hated being a burden but she truly was not a burden at all. She lived with my mom the last two years of her life and it was so much fun having her around all the time.
I could tell the weekend that we went home for Cole's 1st Birthday party that she wasn't feeling very well and was trying to make it a great occasion for us. She stayed in the kitchen with me the entire time I was cooking and baking away. She would just sit and read like she always would. That was the last weekend I saw her and 10 days later she went to be with Our Lord and Savior.
Pineapple cobbler was her favorite weeknight dessert. Yes, I said weeknight dessert. Because, It's so easy to mix together it makes a great weeknight treat. We love pineapple in my family (mainly because it is something EVERYONE will eat). So why not put it into a cobbler and enjoy it warm! When we moved to South Carolina, this was the first recipe she for from me! It's definitely a treat!
She loved desserts and I would always tell her when I wanted to make this and sometimes she would even have this for breakfast!
recipe from my mom, pineapple is my addition
1/2 stick of butter
1 cup of self rising flour
1/2 cup of sugar
1 cup of milk
1 can of pineapple chunks or tidbits,drained
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place butter into 9 by 9 baking dish and place into oven to melt. Watch the butter carefully as it could burn quickly. Once the butter is melted, let cool for a few minutes. Add drained pineapple to baking dish.
Mix together in a bowl the flour,sugar, and milk. Pour the dough onto the pineapple and butter. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes.
