5/4/2019 - Run for the Roses Dinner

It's Derby Day! But I don't like mint juleps, and don't own any bonnets, so I guess I'll just watch the most exciting two minutes in sports on the tube.



The rain is supposed to end this morning (finally!), so it's grilling time. Chicken breasts, coconut basmati rice, and broc (either grilled or roasted).

Tonight may be thick bone-in pork chops braised with sauerkraut, onions, potatoes, pork gravy, caraway & fennel seeds.


A lot of National days to choose from today!


May 4th

We prefer our mint juleps minus the simple syrup and mint.

We had capresish salads and naan bread pizzas. Himself's had pepperoni, onions, and mushrooms. Mine had black olives, tomatoes, spinach, and mushrooms.

I went to a friend's 80th Birthday party (she's also psycho-poodles dog sitter). It was catered by Blue Mesa Grill -- an excellent place. So, I had blue corn cheese enchiladas, a fajita taco, and their wonderful chips and salsa.

There was one missing from all those first Saturday in May days:
World Naked Gardening Day

And no, I did not participate in this - the area here is too populated, plus my neighbor was having a BBQ.

We sat out on our lanai as the sun came back out again,
with a dish of Kalua Pork, steamed White rice, Japanese
Cucumber Kim Chee ala Hawaii-Style, and
Kamaboko or Steamed Fish Cake with a small dish
of Wasabi and Shoyu for dipping.

I think we've had some sort of fish at least once
each that we've been in Hawaii, YUM!



This is a quick video of where we are.
