Ham and Pineapple Fried Rice

This Ham and Pineapple Fried Rice makes a quick, easy and delicious dinner idea!

Ham and Pineapple Fried Rice

We're back to school here in Arizona! Although we homeschool, we keep a very similar schedule to the public schools. We often work through holidays and breaks - only taking days off for Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter. While public school kids often enjoy a few days off, my kiddos still do school work. It gives us a chance to go farther in depth with studies and if my kiddos struggle with any lessons, I can ensure they grasp the concepts before we move on to other lessons.

With back-to-school, that also means more easy meal ideas and one of my favorite meals is fried rice! I probably have 20 variations of the dish! I love that it's quick, simple and it's a great way to use leftovers! You can use almost anything you like in fried rice with great results!
