Lunch if eaten in-house may be a bowl of soup, a seasonal salad or an egg dish, fruit salad or a pudding.

Dinner is three courses, costs $15, and can be ordered by discussing with Allen and filling in the meal form. The dinner meal of the day, with a vegetarian option is usually served at 7.30pm but please speak to Allen if you prefer a different time.
Allen designs the Pineapple menu, catering for vegetarians, vegans, guests with gluten or lactose intolerance and other dietary requirements. If you have special concerns please discuss with Allen and she will do her best to make sure you have the foods you need.
A range of tasty meals is offered using our home-grown produce as much as possible. Our fruit trees produce mangoes, avocados, lemons, papaw (also known as papaya- a squeeze of lemon or lime helps to bring out the flavour), mulberries, cape gooseberries and the occasional strawberry! The vegetable garden produces lettuce, tomatoes, courgettes, butternut squash, cabbage, onions, garlic, green pepper, eggplant, sweet potato, watermelon and the herb garden outside the kitchen has parsley, thyme, basil, rosemary and mint. All these arrive in season and what we do not have ourselves we usually find what we need in the local markets.
We buy yellow yolk eggs from a neighbour whose hens are free-range and free to roam. If you would like to visit the markets with Norah on her shopping day by boda-boda (motor-cycle transport) or by the Pineapple taxi service, please arrange with Allen.
We order sour dough bread from Brood, a Dutch sponsored company with a branch in Entebbe. Brood croissants can be ordered the night before and collected before breakfast from 7.30am if requested.
Our honesty bar is in the corner of the living room with a choice of beers, wines, spirits and soft drinks. There is a price list and sign up sheet so that guests can help themselves. Guests can use the labels provided to mark their bottle of wine.
Residents may invite guests to join them for drinks or meals. Please discuss menu options and arrangements with Allen.
