Pork Fried Rice

I need to come up with better names for these dishes. I’m pretty much the least creative person on the planet and I’m pretty straight forward, and I think those lovely traits of mine are reflected well in my post naming. Oh well. I’ll work on that.

This has been a busy week for me. I had a lot of work to do (end of the month joys) and I had a few doctors appointments to cram in there as well.

I’m not usually a huge fan of mixing salty and sweets, but the pineapple is just the perfect hint of sweet for me.

Some of the ingredients are going to be a little more complicated than I usually include- don’t freak out. I will include their non-paleo counterparts if you are in a pinch (or don’t care).
