Microwave: Mug O'Rice & Pineapple

Microwave: Mug O'Rice & Pineapple
(Adapted from: Baked Pineapple Rice by A Cookbook by Ted)

I mugified the original recipe because I am cooking for one.

3 TBspns Butter
3 TBspns Honey

In a small dessert bowl, add butter.
Microwave for 15-20 seconds to melt butter.
Add honey.
Stir ingredients to mix well.


Vegetable oil
Cooked rice
Canned Pineapple chunks
Butter and honey sauce


Add a dollop of vegetable oil to mug.
Add a small layer of rice.
Add a small layer of pineapple  hunks.
Dribble a little of the butter & honey sauce over layer.
Continue to make layers until mug is almost full.
Top with a bit of the butter & honey sauce.
Put mug on a plate before putting it into the microwave to catch any overflow.
Cover with a saucer.
Microwave on high for 3 minutes.

Leftover idea:
Skillet: Fried Rice and Pineapple with Shrimp and an Egg
In a baggie, add about 4 TBspns of small, thawed shrimp. Add a bit of lime juice and ground black pepper.

Close bag, shake a bit to coat all the shrimp. Let it sit in the frig for about 1 hour.

Remove shrimp.
A Dollop of Vegetable Oil
3-4 TBspns Leftover rice and pineapple mixture.
3-4 Seasoned Shrimp
1 Egg
Ground Black Pepper (Optional)


Add a dollop of vegetable oil to a small skillet.
Add about 3-TBspns of rice and pineapple mixture.
Spread rice mixture over bottom of skillet.
Add 2-3 TBspns of small seasoned shelled thawed shrimp.
Add Ground Black Pepper to taste.
Stir ingredients thoroughly.
Cover and cook for 2-3 minutes.
Uncover, stir mixture.
Crack an egg into the mixture.
Gently, and slowly stir the egg into the mixture.
Using a wooden spoon, gently push and pull small portions of the rice and egg mixture around on the bottom of the skillet. The goal is to scramble and cook the egg.
Cover skillet and let mixture cook for about 1 minute.
Uncover, stir mixture.
The egg mixture should be cooked.
Make a:
