visitors...

monday evening i had the pleasure of having a visitor :)
jacquie came to visit and it was wonderful to have her over for dinner.
besides rachael's wedding... (update on this at a later date) i hadn't seen her since august.
we had the opportunity to talk about life, work, family, friends, etc...
it was relaxing and so nice to spend a little time w/her.
would gladly do it again sometime... ;)

below... i made my mom's chicken fajitas recipe - only they weren't fajitas... either way, they are delicious and i recommend you try it out! i promise, you won't be disappointed!


Maria MacDonald's Chicken Fajitas

1 lb. chicken breast
1 can 8 oz pineapple chunks
1/2 - 1 red or green bell pepper
1/2 - 1 small onion
1 - 3 tbsp of your favorite salsa (depends on taste)
2-4 tbsp sour cream (depends on taste)
1 packet fajita seasoning mix (1.25 oz)
1 bag soft taco flour tortillas (optional)
12 oz grated Monterey jack cheese (can use less, this cheese is my preference)


  1. Dice onion & pepper - sauté for a few minutes in olive oil
  2. Cut chicken into bite size pieces and add to the veggie mix in the frying pan
  3. Fry/sauté above ingredients until chicken starts to look cooked
  4. Add pineapple chunks AND the juice (juice is key factor)
  5. Add fajita mix and let everything simmer for a few minutes
  6. Stir in salsa and sour cream - let cook for a few minutes
  7. Remove stir fry pan from heat and serve over rice and top w/grated Monterey jack cheese - maybe a salad on the side... delish!
OR to turn them into fajitas...
  1. Pull out 9x13 baking pan, spray w/PAM or equivalent
  2. Put a few spoonfuls of fajita mix in a tortilla and roll it up
  3. Place filled tortillas in baking pan
  4. Cover the tortillas w/shredded cheese
  5. Bake in oven at 375 F for about 30 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly
  6. Serve with green salad and olives if so inclined
Eat until your tummy is content!!
