Hey, Friends! Happiest of Sundays! Hey, DADS! HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!!! How are you, guys? What’s goin’ awwwn?? Did you hit up any festivals over the weekend? Wanna know what I did? Um, I went to Corn Roast 2014! I live in Indiana – everything is about the corn around here. And what delicious corn we have… sweet, juicy and crunchy. Loved it!

So, hey, look at this! Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!! Again! But, I mean, are you surprised?! Matter of fact, dinner is always about the chicken. The most versatile piece of meat! I can’t get enough of it. I’ve said it before – chicken is the only reason why I haven’t gone the vegetarian route. It’s the only thing I can’t do without.

Sorry, chickens. I ♥ You!

Know what this chicken needs? MORE pineapple chunks! Can you guess just how many cans of pineapple chunks I have at home? I’ll tell you, anyways. TWELVE. Aaaand why do I have 12 cans of pineapple chunks? Because they just sit on that Lazy Susan, always waiting for the next time that I decide to make this Hawaiian Baked Chicken.

I like to call this ‘beachy’ chicken. Or summery chicken. Because, seriously? Pineapples on top of chicken are SO Summer! Which, by the way, Summer starts in 6 days! “Summer, Summer, Summertiiime, Time to sit back and unwiiiiind…” Fresh Prince 4evah! And Sunflowers perfume…
