Grilled Pineapple with Cinnamon Vanilla Yogurt Dip

Hubby and I ran to the grocery the other day to do our weekly shop. At one point I had forgotten something (shocker) and told him I would be right back.
I came right back, no hubby
Waited off to the side for awhile, no hubby


Decided it was time to wander and go find him.
Entered the freezer section and located the long lost man in my life. He had been hijacked by friends of ours.
We haven't seen them much due to crazy schedules, so it was nice to catch up for a minute.

During conversation, she pointed to her cart and made mention to trying to "be good" lately.
Then she turns around and says "our house, fire, drinks, Saturday, be there".
Okie dokie!

In the back of my head the whole "trying to be good" thing kept reverberating. I wasn't going to show up empty handed, but wanted to not tempt her with naughty yummies.

I dug through my recipe pile, and found this one by Hungry Girl.
Perfect! Sweet, but yet, not naughty!

16 Pineapple rings
6 oz plain greek yogurt
1 Tbsp sugar
⅛ Tsp cinnamon
⅛ Tsp vanilla

1. Lay pineapple on grill or grill pan flat
2. Cook until slightly blackened and caramelized
3. Flip and cook the other side
4. Combine all other ingredients
5. Chill dip for 10 minutes before serving
