Bacon-wrapped pineapple bites

Whenever I have visitors over, I wonder what I could serve them that’s both simple to make & not the usual Kenyan tea and bread/mandazi snack. I hereby present to you Bacon Wrapped Pineapple Bites that’ll definitely leave your guests asking for more.

All you need is bacon, toothpicks, pineapple pieces and cayenne pepper. Can you imagine!

Start by cutting the bacon into slices, enough to wrap a small piece of pineapple.

Mix sugar and cayenne pepper together to coat the bacon-wrapped pineapple.
Take a piece of bacon and wrap it around a pineapple cube.

Pierce a toothpick through the bacon-wrapped pineapple.

 

Generously coat with the sugar -pepper mixture. 

Place it into the oven as per recipe instructions. Keep checking on them while they’re in the oven. For instance, ours almost became a burnt offering since we got so engaged in conversation and forgot they were there! Hehe…

Final results?

Sweet.

Juicy.

Tasty.

Amazing.

Delicious.

Somebody stop me. 🙂

Hehe…Drumrolls……

(Remember I said they got a little burnt. Don’t judge hehe….)

Buuuuut, you see? Bacon and Pineapple is gooood! Hawaaian pizza haters…haters gon’ hate! We won’t let you bring us down!


About judgement, just as I was afraid that you’d judge our almost burnt offering of bacon-pineapple snack…we men and women usually get very defensive when we perceive that someone is casting judgement on us.

Who are you to judge me? ‘ we ask.  ‘Are you God? 

More so, we ask questions like; What about the last judgment? Will our sins be remembered? Will they be revealed?

Anthony Hoekema puts it wisely: “The failures and shortcomings of . . . believers . . . will enter into the picture on the Day of Judgment. But — and this is the important point — the sins and shortcomings of believers will be revealed in the judgement as forgiven sins, whose guilt has been totally covered by the blood of Jesus Christ.”

I’m glad that God has actually given us the details of how it’ll go down on judgement day. First things first, all of us will be judged, that’s sure.

“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.” 2 Corinthians 5:10(NIV)

All judgement will be based on the finished work of Jesus, whether you accepted Him or not. For those who believe, they will receive crowns as rewards;

  • crown of righteousness( 2 Timothy 4:8)
  • incorruptible crown ( 1 Corinthians 9:24-25)
  • crown of life (Revelations 2:10)
  • crown of glory (1 Peter 5:2-4) and
  • crown of rejoicing (I Thessalonians 2:19).

This and so much more is found in the Word concerning judgement. I’m trying to compile a devotional about all this (judgement on the last day and judging others). Hoping to launch that and many other devotionals on the w4d tab here on my website soon. Pray for me!

In the meantime, I implore you to search the Word about judgement, rather than remaining ignorant on it.
