Last week, pineapple snuck onto our ingredient list once again for some kabobs. It’s funny how foods are often dictated by the weather. Winter is a time of stews and comfort food, but spring is a time for freshness. New leaves pop out on the trees, and fruits and berries suddenly appear again on my dinner plates. I love the turning of this season. Fresh pineapple just makes me think of sunshine.
Apparently, I didn’t have enough with last week’s kabobs. I went for pineapple again tonight as I tried Jerk Chicken with Rice and Beans:
The full recipe is from Real Simple.
I over-cooked the rice a little bit. I was chatting while doing dinner, so I guess it happens. Otherwise, all was fine - not great, but fine. I think I just need practice with this one. I'll definitely try it again, though.
