Grilled Pineapple Guacamole #SecretRecipeClub

Yum
The Secret Recipe Club is a group of people who love to cook.  Each month we are given a blog to go to and to find a recipe we want to make.  We post our chosen recipe and introduce you to the blog!  It's a lot of fun and I enjoy getting to know some new bloggers.  We are organized by the ever lovely Camilla from Culinary Adventures with Camilla.

This month I was assigned to Cheese Curd In Paradise.  The curator for this blog is Ashley, who lives in Wisconsin *got it!!! and is a mom to two littles.



I loved looking through her blog.  She posts many of her Weekly Meal Plans and I am sure some of my other blogger friends and readers would be into seeing what a busy mom does to eat at home!  I also found these Dilly Dust Deviled Eggs and this Crustless Quiche.  Both which will be on my future menus!

The recipe that took me in, that said, Make Me, Make Me, was this Grilled Pineapple Guacamole.  When I saw this, I blinked twice and thought, "where have you been all of my life?"  I am huge avocado fan. Check out these past posts:  Strawberry Avocado Salad, Good for You Mousse, Breakfast Salad, Avocado Hummus, and so many others!  

So here it is, the recipe that was waiting for me to find it:
