Pineapple Fried Rice might sound weird.. until you try it. I mean… just look at it.
Bring on the week, baby!
I mentioned that I recently started a new position which I am thrilled about! I am a marketing assistant and the sales trainer for a property management company. It’s a pretty sweet gig. In my new role, I will be traveling to all our communities conducting training courses for all the leasing agents. This week I’m headed down to Tucson, AZ.
I think with traveling, I will get the opportunity to check out some cool local spots. Basically, I am a professional busy body. And if you know me you know I like to stay busy. So stay tuned for that.
And then to sweeten the deal even more we have a shorter week. Life doesn’t get much better.
So I basically ate pineapple fried rice every other day while in Thailand.
First of all, I know what your thinking blah, blah, blah Thailand, Thailand, Thailand. Well second of all, you’re welcome. Because so much amazing food comes from Thailand. And I decided to put a twist on the whole rice thing, by swapping rice out with quinoa this dish is perfect for vegetarians with quinoa being a complete protein.
What is also awesome about pineapple fried rice is if you are thinking about meal prepping. You can stop looking. Because cough, cough, this is a perfect addition to a meal rotation. To make this pineapple fried rice one step shorter, I like to pre-cook my quinoa the night before and store in the fridge so really all the time intensive steps are done! And in my experience it comes out better. If you wanted to add some protein to the pineapple fried rice, it pairs really well with chicken and shrimp. Try it out!!
