Chicken pineapple curry

Published on February 13, 2016, by in Recipes.

I had found a recipe on Pinterest, but made so many changes to it by the time it was done, that it really looked nothing like the original by the time I was done.

I decided that I would try a few of the meal delivery services, and why not, they offer great deals for first time customers. The  first company I tried was HelloFresh. I paid about $30 for 3 meals that are 2 servings each. There were about 6 options to choose from. I chose a shrimp lettuce wrap,
