Sunny pineapple recipes

It has been cold, gray and rainy here for the last few days. I was digging in a box of books and found my misplaced Dole pineapple book. It reminded me of several vacations in Hawaii. Even when it rains there is usually on the warm side and there always seems to be a beautiful rainbow afterword. Wish I could go back someday.
Anyway, here are some recipes from the booklet. It is a Favorite Brands book and they are usually good.

Aloha Joes
1 can (20 oz.) Dole pineapple tidbits
1 pound ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, pressed or minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon chili powder
6 hamburger buns, split and toasted
Drain pineapple. In large skillet, brown meat. Add onion and garlic; cook until onion is soft. Drain and discard fat. Sprinkle meat mixture with salt and pepper.
