Pineapple Coconut Pie

Pineapple and coconut are two of my favorite flavors together. When I stumbled upon this recipe I knew I had to try it. One taste and you are transported to a tropical island without a care in the world. Truth is I could really use that right now. I have sat down for days trying to write up this recipe post to share only to have my mind go blank. 

With all the things that have happened in the past few months I think everything is finally taking a toll on me. Since my husbands heart attack back in December everything has changed. It is a daily struggle for me trying to find balance. Is it even possible to find balance in our lives? What we were before the heart attack is not what we are now. We are a much stronger family.  

My husband walks daily and recently I started to join him. On the road we live on it is very hilly. We are lucky to live in the county and not live on a main road. There is traffic but usually just neighbors and such. I was doing so well until I injured my leg. I have been resting it so I can get back at it. If it would just get back to being warmer I would be more willing to give it a try again. I was really starting to enjoy it and look forward to it every day. 

Hubby and I on our walks. Those hills are a no joke!

This would be a perfect addition to your Easter meal.
