3/25/2019 - Aretha Franklin's Birthday Dinner

Today we remember Aretha Franklin, the Queen of Soul, who would have been 77 years old today. She passed away this past August.

The sun is shining, it's in the low 40's, almost all of the snow is gone, I got out on my bike, and I'm feeling tropical. Tonight's dinner will be huli huli chicken, grilled pineapple, and coconut lime basmati rice.

I've got a couple of country style pork ribs slow roasting in the oven. I think I'll throw a few baby red potatoes in the roasting dish when the ribs are close to done, and steam some broccoli and carrots for sides.

I loved Aretha since the 60's.. Wonderful woman..

Cold day so I adapted a stove top Green Chili Chicken Stew recipe to my Instant Pot.. I added pinto beans because.. beans..
Turned out really good.. I think that Rachel Ray would call it a "stoup"..
Served with sour cream and toasted garlic ciabatta rolls..

Ice cream for later..

I think I will probably make a peasant omelette with cheese and scallions for supper.

A low carb wrap stuffed with tuna salad and cheese warmed in the microwave to melt the cheese and a big fat Claussen dill pickle.

These wraps from Aldi have become a staple in my kitchen. I usually cut them in half when I make sandwiches or use them as hot dog holders.

I used the recipe that GG posted. Umm, are you asking a New Englander how to make Huli chicken?



Chicken was good, but the grilled pineapple (included in the recipe) was way too sweet. I think that I'll just grill the pineapple next time.
