A Hideous Confluence of Pineapples and Meatloaf

I bought a pineapple the other day. (On sale.) I got around to cutting it up last night. Most of it went into a container, but I had a little left over, so I decided to put it in the Braun hand blender I have (but never use).

I was expecting "chopped" or "shredded," but got something the wrong side of "pureed." No matter. I was making a turkey meatloaf, so decided to mix some in there to see what would happen.

Actually, it wasn't supposed to be a turkey meatloaf -- it's just when I mixed the mush into the mass of meat, it got really...runny. Even with the judicious application of breadcrumbs, so I plopped it into the loaf pyrex.

Now, there are recipes that incorporate pineapple into meatloaf (which I determined afterwards). Some claim to be quite good. This however, was not one of them.

After an hour in the over, the outside was burnt, the inside was an amorphous mush, and the smell was of rotten ass, suitable for immediate disposal.
