Why travel when you can have a taste of the tropics at home??? Well, yes, I agree -- a vacation would be better, but this is a close runner up. Don't mind my lack of photography skills...these two dishes are out of this world good and will impress just about anyone. Give it a try this weekend!
Pineapple Fried Rice with Cashews
2 C. rice (basmati works well)
1 13.5 oz. can coconut milk
2 1/4 C. water
3 chicken bouillon cubes (or equivalent granules)
1 8 oz. can pineapple tidbits in juice, drained and juice reserved
1 white onion, minced
1 C. diced ham
4-5 green onions, sliced
1/3 C. cashews
Salt and pepper
If there are leftovers, which is a big if, try out this recipe for BBQ Hawaiian Pork Wonton Tacos.
1 4-5 lb. pork shoulder roast
1 Tbsp. Hawaiian sea salt (smoked, Himalayan, etc. will work too)
8 slices bacon
1/3 C. guava or pineapple juice
