Lime Cilantro Rice with Pineapple

We're on our way!!  It has been one of the longest months of my life, but I'm pretty excited to spend this week with my Caleb & Eli in Tennessee.  What a journey it will be!  Wish us safe travels & luck!:)

Since it's grillin' season I thought I'd give you some wonderful grillin' menu items this week (and a cupcake recipe...what can I say?!)

This rice goes so well with grilled chicken or fish.  Add in some watermelon and you've got yourself a wonderful summer meal!

Lime Cilantro Rice with Pineapple
Recipe from Our Best Bites
1 cup long grain rice
2 cups water
2 tablespoons real butter
juice from 1 lime
1 (8 oz.) can crushed pineapple, drained
1/2-3/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
Kosher salt and black pepper to taste

In a large saucepan, combine the rice and water.  Bring it to a boil over high heat and then reduce the heat, cover and allow to simmer for 20 minutes.

Remove from the heat and allow to stand for 5 minutes, still covered.  Add the butter and stir until melted.  Add the lime juice, pineapple and cilantro.  Stir to combine & then add salt and pepper to taste.  Serve immediately.
