Marinated Pork and Mango Skewers with Coconut Rice

Pork and Mango Skewers with Coconut Rice // Karista's Kitchen for VRAI Magazine

It’s starting to feel like spring and I am beyond elated! The high today is 67 here in the valley and it’s going to be a great day for prepping the new garden.  Ranger Craig is building the rest of the garden boxes while I prepare a quick meal for my friends over at Red Bird Acres.  We’re off to see baby chicks and piglets again!  Ok, I admit, I’m really excited about seeing the baby chicks and piglets this afternoon.

Before I get my day started, I want to share with you my latest recipe and article for VRAI MagazineMarinated Pork and Mango Skewers with Coconut Rice. The blend of marinated pork with sweet mango, peppers and red onion make for the tastiest combination of flavors.  Perfect for a casual weekend with friends and family.  If it’s too cold to grill outdoors, these skewers can easily be prepared indoors on a grill pan.  Or stir fried and then ladled over the coconut rice.

Enjoy your weekend!  Just in case you haven’t seen pictures from the last piglet visit, I’ve posted a few for you 🙂

Delicious Wishes and Loads of Love!

      Thanks Kerri! We have really enjoyed visiting those little piggies… most of them are too busy playing to be bothered but two of them are super friendly and love those belly rubs. 🙂 Yes! That rice is addictive!
