Teriyaki Pineapple Chicken

I have always liked the idea of Hawaiian Haystacks...rice with cream of chicken topped with chow mein and fruits/vegies, but I wanted something a little different. I went to my favorite recipe site allrecipes.com and found this one. I really liked it, although I would put in less red pepper flakes. I served it over brown rice. 

Teriyaki Pineapple Chicken

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into cubes
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced thin (I omitted these)
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, sliced thin
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced thin
  • 1 1/4 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 1 (8 ounce) can pineapple chunks, undrained
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour

Book Review

Wish You Well 

Wish You Well (Deckled Edge) First Edition

I will have to admit that the last time I read this book was a couple of years ago but for some reason it came to my mind again. I loved this book. I think I have actually read it twice. For a review of the book go to Amazon.com. In my opinion this book makes you believe in hope and happiness no matter what circumstance you live in. If you look for the good in life then you can truly be happy with what you are given. I highly recommend it!

Spring Wreath

Spring is in the air... at least I think it is. I can't wait until this warm weather stays for good but until then I wanted to make something that would remind me of sunny days ahead. I made a spring wreath. I got the idea from A Little Tipsy so all credit goes to her but I must admit I absolutely love it! All I did was buy a grapevine wreath and 5 bunches of styrofoam berries from Dollar Tree. I cut the bunches off and just stuck them in where I felt they needed to go. They have stayed so far but I might eventually hot glue them in place.
