Why A Newsletter? Why Now?

A newsletter is not only a great tool to share information and updates but also serves as a wonderful way for us all to stay connected. As we find ourselves in unprecedented times of closures and social distancing it feels more important than ever to find additional ways to connect; even if it’s just to share some of the basics of everyday life.

One of the special things about living in Hawaii is the strong sense of community that naturally develops from a culture of connecting with each other. Living on a small island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean fosters a tendency to instinctively work together and help one another in time of need. It has been said that two Hawaiian words tell the story of life in these islands: “Malama” – to take care of and “Kokua” – to help. So, whether you find yourself in the islands or on the mainland right now, we hope you enjoy our new project, stay connected, and above all, take care of each other.

Drain the pineapple, reserving 1 cup of the pineapple juice. Save the pineapple slices for later use.

Place the pineapple juice, soy sauce, brown sugar, ketchup and sesame oil in a large bowl. Whisk to combine.

Reserve 2 tablespoons of the marinade in the refrigerator in a small bowl. This will be used later on to baste the chicken.

Stir the garlic and ginger into the large bowl of marinade. Add the chicken thighs and toss to coat.

Cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least one hour, or up to 24 hours.

Preheat an outdoor grill or grill pan to medium heat.

Remove the chicken from the marinade and place on the grill. Cook for 6-8 minutes per side or until chicken is done, basting occasionally with the reserved marinade.

Place the pineapple slices on the grill. Cook for 2 minutes per side.

Place the pineapple and chicken on a plate. Sprinkle with green onions, then serve.
