I Wish I Could Cook Chicken For Dinner Every Night!

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!

Pineapple and Chicken Together Make A Great Dinner Recipe 

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…

    Ooh! This chicken looks sooo good Kate! I love pineapples so this would be a definite win for me 🙂 Pinned!

  2. Bethany

    I would buy new sheets! I love their sheets so much, and I’m desperately in need of more, but can never justify the expense when I’m shopping.

  3. Erin @ The Spiffy Cookie

    I would buy some baby clothes for my soon-to-be-born nephew (and some toys for his soon-to-be big brother), some new food plates and other props, and whatever new top catches my eye.

  4. Danielle

    Floor rugs. They have some of the cutest runners. I look at them and drool over them every time I’m in the store.

  5. Emily @ Life on Food

    Cracklin Oat cereal cause it is amazing. And then probably fun home accessories. They always have the cutest things.

  6. Janet W.

    I will probably spend this gift card on my grandson’s birthday coming up. He loves anything Thomas the Train related, so maybe a new train track set or trains to get with his existing sets.

  7. Dee

    I would love to surprise someone special with an Amazing gift!! If the Target here has an optical, I would love to surprise my son with better eyesight by getting him a new pair of glasses, since he broke his frame a few days ago… 😉
    Good Luck to All!!

  8. A_Boleyn

    We finally have a Target in our Canadian town but I’ve never visited. I just don’t buy many things these days but I’m sure I’d find something if I did stop in, probably for the kitchen. Maybe a coffee machine or bakeware.

  9. Lauren J.

    I’m having a baby girl in August and currently have all boy clothes – no new clothes for the little one!
