Tawn Makes Pineapple Fried Rice

The evening after Andy and Sugi’s wedding, the newlyweds were off at a family dinner so Tawn and I invited Andy W and Kenny over to our condo for dinner. Sugi’s family had sent us home the night before with a pair of very ripe Maui Gold pineapples, so Tawn offered to make pineapple fried rice.


Chef Tawn busy in the kitchen. We had to buy a few items such as the raisins, the pack of which I carried with me back to Kansas City to leave with my sister’s family, since the friend we’re staying with in San Francisco doesn’t like raisins.


Dinner started with a fresh mango and pineapple smoothie. Healthy treat to whet the appetite.


Filling the hollowed-out pineapple with the fried rice. The top shell is placed over the rice and then it is baked in the over until fragrant.

A short video of Tawn removing the top of the pineapple!


The finished product! It was really tasty.


For dessert: green tea ice cream.

That’s the question! Ha ha!@ElusiveWords – And a large rice cooker, at that!@Ikwa – Thanks for the mini!@rudyhou – He does cook from time to time.
