Whipped Feta and Roasted Jalapeño Greek Pizza
This morning the power went out at 5:00am and did not come back on till close to 10:00.
Blame the foot plus of snow that came down over night. Yeah, I know.
At first I totally freaked.
I mean no power means no internet. No internet means no connecting with all my bloggy friends, no submitting posts to Foodgawker and Tastespotting and NO promotion of my post (which was this amazing Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl Fudge Brownie Ice Cream just incase ya missed it). Luckily I had scheduled my post to go up at 4:00am, so at least I got my post out to you guys!
The early hours of the morning are actually pretty crazy. Normally I am all over the internet trying to promote that day’s post and working on like a gazillion different things at once. Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, reading blogs and working on my own site.
I know this sounds like a whole lot of fun stuff, but some day’s it is trying. Some days I don’t want to scour my computer screen and think of clever things to say about my recipe for the day or spend way too long in the twitter world (twitter = time suck). I mean don’t get me wrong most days I love this, I even crave this, it’s my thing. It makes me smile!
I tried to work from my phone for a little, but honestly that just gave me a headache. I like a nice big screen and keys that I can actually punch down on. So eventually, I just said screw it. I put on my snow pants, my coat, hat and boots and set out for a hike (yes, I am crazy). It was too early to start cooking (no good light yet, plus um no power) and I figured the power would be back on when I got home (it was).
Ya know something?
An internet break, even a small one, does a girl good!
It felt good to just not be connected for once. Kind of like a super, super quick cleanse. Very refreshing (I know, lame)!
Ok, ok now how about some jerk chicken? With a big old pile of grilled pineapple salsa? It’s jerktastic!
No, seriously it is. I have no idea how this recipe came about. I mean I was set on making greek and some how I ended up with a Jamaican style dish. Really, my brain is so wacked out. The things it tells me to do!
This is SO good. The chicken is covered in the a spicy sweet jerk sauce. It’s pretty much a jerk BBQ sauce and it’s lick the spoon good. I mixed a little bit of the sauce into some fried rice with red and orange peppers. And then there is the pineapple salsa. Oh man, I am in love with this salsa. It’s sweet, crunchy, just a teensy bit spicy and the perfect topper to this dish. It brings the whole thing together. You gotta make the salsa! You may end up eating it with a spoon. Maybe, I don’t know. That may be just me.

Alright so lets stop jerking around so you can go make this. Like now!
Could I marinate the chicken overnight?
