Barbeque Chicken with Grilled Pineapple

My August wedding tour is over and I'm back :) It's been a crazy, fun and festive month. We had two huge family weddings...one for Neil's sister and the other, my cousin. The weddings were beautiful, and it was great to be able to spend quality time with both sides of the family. We had so much fun celebrating, I barely realized that summer is winding down, and it's hitting me now. I'm NOWHERE near ready to let it go yet! We still have a few more weeks of warm weather, I hope. I'll shed my first tear the day I'm forced to squeeze into a pair of jeans...ugh. Until then, I'm staying calm. Also, to make the transition somewhat easier, we booked a trip to Puerto Vallarta in October! That might work to my detriment...we'll see :)

I plan to spend the warm days we have left, grilling. This recipe I came across online is a delicious dish that I love to make this time of year. It's a simple chicken breast, rubbed with an interesting spice mixture, served along side a refreshing pineapple salsa. I really like the spice rub on the chicken and the pineapple salsa offsets it perfectly. It's also served with a unique pumpkin polenta, which gives a teaser of the change of season ahead. Hey, at least I have food to look forward to in the Fall...


Snapper Veracruz

Out of all the fish dishes I make, this is Neil's absolute favorite. It's spicy, tangy, and a touch of sweet all in one. I've played around with the traditional veracruz sauce and made it to suit my taste. You don't have to use snapper either. Any firm, white fish will do for this. I'm really too tired to write anymore. This lazy Sunday is literally "lazy". We had a friend's wedding on Saturday...bit too much partying for me and no sleep! I'm paying for it now.
Have a great week, and make this. It's surprisingly a pretty quick fix for a weeknight meal.

See Recipe!
