I love pineapple, especially with ham. I really like Hawaiian pizzas.

A pineapple company on Maui hired me to negotiate a dispute between the management and labor. There was a big strike going on, lots of anger brewing creating a situation that could quickly get out of hand. So, I led a group of management and labor through the process of dispute resolution. A very long story cut short, we did settle the dispute, management and labor came to a mutually agreed upon solution, and paid me handsomely.

I bought a six-pack of pineapples at the airport. When I got home and opened the box, the pineapples were packed in manure. The company name on the box was a different one than the one that hired me. 
The point is, unhappy labor has many options when fighting management. Who, in their right mind, would buy another box from that company? Who wins? Who pays? 

Clearly, neither management or labor wins. If customers don't buy that brand, the company loses customers, the workers lose jobs. No one wins, the customers throw away the boxes of manured pineapples and vows to never buy from that company again and tell their friends. This strategy is one of sabotage. 

In order to get a win/win solution, both management and labor must have a resolution that satisfies both. 

Now, back to food, my favorite cake of all is pineapple upside down cake made in a cast iron skillet.

Carl, I like your peep shows, especially the second one.

I've never had pineapple on ham, but will try it if someone else makes it.

FA, you can have the pineapple. However, I will say this. If my mom had made ham that looked like that, i would have been highly tempted to try it.

Enjoyed reading all the comments regarding Easter traditions.

I watched a Food Channel "Unwrapped" show last night which featured a company that smokes ham, and others that makes chocolate bunnies, Peeps, jelly beans, and several other sweet things. Oh, and green beans--from Americus, Georgia of all places!  It grossed me out--the production of processed food.

Sk8eycat, I have to admit, I've never before heard Peeps being referred to as sleazy!  lol

Unless, of course.........

What are peeps? E-numbers? Sugar?

Comment by sk8eycat on April 19, 2014 at 6:52pm

Are you saying you've never heard of them, or are you just shocked that I like them?

I don't like milk chocolate, either....EXCEPT hot, in a big mug, with whipped cream on top.  Especially on a chilly evening.

Girhardelli makes a delicious Mocha Hot Cocoa...needs a LOT of milk or half & half to be drinkable, IMO, but I do enjoy it once in a while.  (About as often as I enjoy mulled wine, or cider....once or twice a year.)  I once made a mixture of mulled cranberry juice and a splash of cider....VERY tasty!

The first time I got a chocolate bunny in my basket, I was SO disappointed to find out the thing was hollow instead of solid chocolate.

My sister ordered groceries yesterday (for delivery today)...she bought me a surprise...a box of PEEPS!  LOL  They are so sleazy;  I love them.
