What do you do when you have a broken heart? You go to Hawaii, what else! Our lovable guy Peter (Jason Segel) takes a trip to paradise to forget the love of his life, Sarah Marshall, who has kicked him to the curb. In honor of this hilarious movie, our 50th state and birthplace of our President Barack Obama "Reel Good Recipes" is hosting a luau starring our recipe for Pineapple and Pork Hawaiian Shish kabobs. Broken hearted or not, bring Hawaii's flavors into your home with our fabulous recipe. Just put "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" into the DVD player, place a lei around your neck and enjoy our beautiful and super easy kabobs. For drinks, add a batch of Mai Tai's - it doesn't get much better than this!
