Pineapple Veggie Vermicelli

Happy Thursday!!  Friday is just around the corner 🙂  I am excited for tomorrow as we are surprising Shelby with a trip to the movies to see Paul Blart Mall Cop 2 … Shelby has been awaiting the release and we are going to opening night at our favorite theater (one that serves food and drinks of the adult form).  Now I just have to keep the secret which I have never been very good at doing when I am trying to surprise someone.

Yesterday I put some chicken in the crockpot with the hopes of making some yummy buffalo chicken tacos for dinner … however something just did not look right with the chicken after it cooked.  I am not totally sure why but there was a pinkish film and I decided not to risk it!  So … I had to make something on the fly for dinner.

Off to the pantry I went.  I had a bag of vermicelli that had been sitting in there for quite some time.  I thought of a recipe I saw awhile back for pineapple fried rice … an idea for dinner was born!  Pineapple Veggie Vermicelli!

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup frozen corn
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 1 package cooked vermicelli
  • 2 cups diced pineapple
  • 1/2 cup diced ham

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, garlic powder, ginger powder and white pepper; set aside.
  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet or wok over medium high heat. Add onion to the skillet, and cook, stirring often, until onions have become translucent, about 3-4 minutes. Stir in corn and peas, and cook, stirring constantly, until vegetables are tender, about 3-4 minutes.
  • Stir in vermicelli, pineapple, ham, and soy sauce mixture. Cook, stirring constantly, until heated through, about 2 minutes.
  • Eat up!

This meal was super easy and super quick to throw together and get on the table.  It really was better (and much healthier) than the take out I was thinking of ordering when my dinner plans fell through 🙂

Hope you have a wonderful and productive Thursday!

How often do you come up with a dinner idea on the fly?  Any go to meals that you always have on stand-by?
