In the past month, I have shared a bit about the Twisted Vine and have mentioned the shrimp with pineapple dish.
After eating there at the Hurricane Sandy fundraiser, I decided to make my own version of the dish for us to eat at home.
Isn’t this a brilliant way to get the kids to try new foods at home?
If they have enjoyed something at a restaurant and been been a bit adventurous, then tell them you will try to recreate it at home. Encourage them to join in too!
