A Taste of Paradise

For our second luau, we made our old favorites, which you can find here, we went bananas (see here), and discovered a few new keepers, which you will find below.

Island Kielbasa in a Slow Cooker


2 pounds kielbasa sausage, sliced into 1/2 inch pieces
2 cups ketchup
2 cups brown sugar
1 (15 ounce) can pineapple chunks, undrained


Place the sausage, ketchup, sugar, and pineapple in the slow cooker and mix together.

Cover and cook on low setting for 5 to 6 hours, until sausage is cooked through.

Notes: We really liked this a lot. You could also use crushed pineapple or pineapple tidbits in place of the pineapple chunks, if you would like.

Tropical Punch


1 (12-ounce) can frozen pineapple juice concentrate
5 cups seltzer
5 cups ginger ale
4 cups cranberry juice
2 cups orange juice
1 lemon
2 limes


Place 1 12-oz. can frozen pineapple juice concentrate (thawed) in a large pitcher; pour in 5 cups seltzer and 5 cups ginger ale. Stir vigorously until well blended. Stir in 4 cups cranberry juice and 2 cups orange juice; mix well. Scrub 1 lemon and 2 limes, then thinly slice. Just before serving, add sliced lemon and limes to pitcher and pour punch over ice.
