Last Nights Dinner

Thai Pineapple Fried Rice
So I found this recipe a little while ago and have been dying to try it out! I have a major food crush on pineapple and any recipe that involves it. It cooks very quickly- the longest part is just getting everything chopped and ready to go. I was also excited to use the wok Kev bought me- I love that thing! Anyways, when we sat down to eat it, we both thought it was amazingly delicious. I, of course cooked chicken to put on top top Kev’s and I had it just plain with veggies. You could also cook shrimp for it if you eat seafood. It was such a great use of flavors from the curry, currants, pineapple, peas, cilantro, etc… it all worked together so well!!
