The Payday Dinner Challenge
Do you ever get close to payday and need to cook something for dinner with ingredients you have in your pantry?Â That is exactly how this Hawaiian chicken recipe was “born”.Â Well, at least that’s the short story version.
The Chef and I were talking about what to cook for dinner, and I said, “Can you do something with….” … when he hears me start a sentence like this I can only imagine the thoughts that must run through his mind.Â But I asked him if he could make something like a pilaf with chicken and pineapple.Â We like the chicken and pineapple combo.
Low and behold…. he had been thinking about doing something like this too.Â So he went to the pantry to see what we had on hand and got to work in the kitchen.Â The result was a delicious main dish recipe that both my mother-in-law and our son have requested since the first time he made it.
How often does that happen?Â Not often in our home!
So we are guest posting this recipe today over at eSavingsBlog, which is authored by Kari Ann, a good friend.Â She has taught me quite a bit about saving money.Â She covers things on her blog and in her book about saving money that I had never considered or thought about.
I am planning to cover some topics about saving money on groceries in the future… if I could ever get a routine down with it to make it work for us.Â Our biggest challenge is that our food sensitivities affect the kinds of groceries we buy, many of which are not often on sale!Â Pffftttt!
Anyway… pay Kari Ann a visit and let her know what you think about the recipe!
If you have a picky eater who likes chicken and/or pineapple…. this one is worth a shot.Â ;)Â Also be sure to check out our book, What to Cook for Dinner for Picky Eaters, for many more recipes to try as well as professional tips and more.
