Sweet and tangy pineapple chicken kabobs should be on your grill tonight. Serves with a side of fries or better yet avocado fries!

This coming Friday, May 13, Steph’s Bite by Bite is hosting an online bake sale to raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and I am participating! This will be the second bake sale Steph has hosted (raising $1,707 last time), but is my first ever online bake sale and I’m really excited to help out a good cause.

This time around I am donating Stuffed Oatmeal Raisinet Cookies. Many other great bakers are contributing and I may be tempted to bid on items myself! Make sure to head on over to her site this Friday! **CLOSED**

Pineapple Chicken Kabobs

Now for the skewers I told you about yesterday. These came from my first attempt to replicate the grilled chicken and pineapple kabobs from Huey’s. It’s one of my favorite things to order there, especially since it comes in snack size – forced portion control!

Although they were not an exact replica, I still really enjoyed the flavors. And you cannot go wrong with something that involves grilled pineapple. It might have been my favorite part of the meal!

Normally these are served with fries, but I decided to go for Avocado Fries.

Oo I love homemade vanilla extract. I did that as Christmas presents this past year.
