Pineapple Fried Rice


This is a rice worth it’s weight in prep time. I adore this recipe and have used it a number of times. However, the couple of times I tried to set it up for a post it did not work out taking photos due to various complications (like a power outage). Finally we are having some dear friends over and this is a part of the hefty menu. Give it a try and I guarantee it will become a favorite!
