Carribean Spice Rubbed Chicken & Pineapple Salsa

Mom brought over the latest Fine Cooking edition and she wanted so badly to beat Sheri and Amy to the punch to make a recipe from this mag for once, we gathered all of the ingredients and had ourselves a nice dinner.

There are a few different rubs that this issue brings forth, but the Carribean spices seemed the most tantalizing to me. I love cumin and brown sugar it was immediately a winner.

After pounding the chix breast, I coated them with the spice rub and threw 'em on the barbie. They cooked quickly, barely gave me enough time to make the pinapple salsa. I didn't follow the recipe for this, I gave it my own twist be leaving out the radishes and substituting black beans instead as this was an actual side dish, not just something to top the chicken.

Holy Cow, this blog needs attention!

So, here is my first post in a while....just in time for Weekend Cat Blogging #50:)

It's a look at the past and present lives of two very lazy cats. Stella the killer and Butterscotch the patriarch. The first photo was only taken eight months ago...look how big our Stella is already!

Those of you that would like to join in the kitty blogging fun, visit Clare at Eatstuff and provide your permalink to her in the WCB comments. If you'd rather post your doggie pics, head on over to Sweetnicks and do that too!
