Pineapple Sorbet

I hope you had a great 4th of July. You may remember that it is my favorite holiday! The parades, fireworks, BBQs with friends, all of it! This year we went to a Dodger's game with our friends John Michael and Sabrina. It was my first Dodger's game and it was fantastic. Such an American thing to do on the 4th, don't you think?
Getting here. The stadium is only 2 neighborhoods away from us so we didn't have far to go. It surrounded by beautiful hills and trees.
 Say cheese!
 Enjoying my favorite holiday with my hubby!
 My first Dodger's Dog. It was yummy. I was really bummed though because they didn't have pickles and I wanted, no NEEDED a pickle! Oh well...
 Take me out to the ball game, take me out to the crowd. Buy me some peanuts...
 Root, Root, Root...
 One, Two, Three strikes your out...
 Ol' Billy Ray singing America the Beautiful to us at the 9th inning.
 I barely watched the game, mostly I was watching the entertaining screen and the interesting people. We did win though!
 People rushed to the lawn to watch the firework show. We stayed in our seats because we could see pretty well.
 Woo hoo!
 My fav!
 The finale was so intense the camera couldn't capture it, looks like a bomb was going off!

In other news, my Mom and seester are coming in town tomorrow for a few days. We are restaurant researching for my mom, so lots of good food to be eaten!

Here is part 2 of my Pineapple Lovin' blogs.

Pineapple Sorbet
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of water
2 cups of pineapple
1/4 cup lime juice
Make a simple syrup with 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of water. Stir together and heat until boils then remove from heat.
Dice pineapple.
Blend pineapple until smooth.

Juice lime. Stir together simple syrup, lime juice and blended pineapple.
Allow mixture to cool in fridge for at least 6 hours.
Transfer to your ice cream maker and you will have sorbet in no time!
You can eat some now or place it in a storage container and allow it to freeze for a few more hours. I actually thought it tasted better frozen. It was really tart before being frozen through.
I think it was taste delicious with some strawberry puree or a dollop of whip cream.. I didn't have any of that at this moment, but it was still refreshing!
