Totally Pineapples for Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner - June 4, 2021

 

Happy Friday!

Here is your weekly dose of Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner. Your weekly post of the fun, entertaining and interesting things we have going on.

This week we hosted puppy play date and dinner, and my inspiration for dinner was a beautifully golden pineapple.

Do you like pineapples?

I LOVE a deliciously ripe, sweet, yellow pineapple. This juicy fruit makes me feel like putting on my bikini and lounging by the water with a cocktail and a good book!

Below are 3 delicious ways to use pineapple in Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner, plus a bonus recipe for you to try too!

 

Pineapple Carrot Muffins

 

Breakfast

EASY Pineapple Carrot Muffins – Mmmm Delicious

This easy Pineapple Carrot Muffin recipe is going to put a smile on your face!

Super tasty and easy to make.

I especially love to cut the muffin in half, toss it in my toaster oven and give the halves an extra toast before spreading a little butter and enjoying with my latte in the morning.

Note: In the recipe feel free to sub in freshly crushed pineapple if you’d like rather than canned.

 

 

 Pineapple Cucumber Salad

Lunch

Pineapple Cucumber Salad

Cucumber and Pineapple go together so well!

This Pineapple Cucumber Salad is super fresh and easy to toss together, I’d even suggest serving this over a bed of arugula or baby greens.

If you wanted to put a little Mediterranean twist on this salad you could swap out the cilantro for mint!

 

 

 Chimichurri Pineapple Veggie Skewers

Dinner

Chimichurri Pineapple Veggie Skewers & a Pineapple Screwdriver

Holy Cow – Amazingly Delicious!

At least once a week we have a plant-based dinner and this past week I really knocked it out of the park with this recipe.

These Chimichurri Pineapple Veggie Skewers are super easy and so satisfyingly filling and delicious.

This delicious recipe was developed by Kasey from Well-Fed Soul.

I did make one adjustment, also included Field Roast Smoked Apple & Sage Plant-Based Sausages onto the skewers. These added such a great flavor to the dish! 

As an extra bonus you can also pair your meal with a Pineapple Screwdriver cocktail.

 

Note: For cooking the pineapple skewers, the recipe suggests to cook them on the grill, we cooked them on our Traeger and they turned out fantastic!
