For the pineapple grill or broil the slices and serve with the chicken. Takes about 5 minutes. You can either grill this or broil. I broiled. Assemble skewers by adding the chicken about 6-8 pieces to each. (If using wooden skewers soak for 30 minutes prior) Grill on one side and then turn slightly. For broil, preheat oven. Line a baking sheet with cooking spray. Cook for 5 minutes and then turn, takes 10-15 minutes.

Restaurant Outing: Three Doors Down

Three Doors Down is one of my favorite restaurants in Portland.   This place has had a lot of food firsts for me.  The first time I tried a scallop was several years ago with a peach sauce, it was buttery and one of the most delicious dishes I have tried.

Everything I have tried has been delicious.  We got the burrata, tomato, basil bruschetta which was like a bite of heaven.  They have a wide variety of options for main dishes including pasta options.  I tend to gravitate towards their cocoa-coffee pork dish because I like their potatoes.

Full menu, terrific hosts, and a must try if you are wanting to have an intimate dinner.
