One of the best sandwiches I ever had in my life was when I was in the hospital recovering from an appendectomy. It was as basic as can be: hamburger bun, ham, American Cheese and a ring of pineapple, all toasted together. I told my family about it when I got home and we’ve all been making them ever since…well, me more than the rest of them! And I worked at the United Airlines tent at the Cleveland Airshow one summer, coring and slicing fresh pineapples flown in from Hawaii for the crowds. Even after a whole day spent sticky and surrounded by bees, and getting the corners of my mouth burned by the pineapple cores we were allowed to nibble on, I still love pineapple!
And now of course I’m craving some.
