Aloha K-girl and everyone's nice looking dinners! I had the other half of the gyro left over from lunch with a friend. Still cold, rainy, and distinctly untropical here.

Aloha! Kgirl and the Mr., you two sure are on the go a lot. Enjoy your trip in beautiful Hawaii!

Fabulous looking dinners, everyone. Med....I love those serving plates. I've been craving a loaded up cheese enchilada dinner with rice and beans and just as I was starting the prep this afternoon, I got a call from my daughter about joining her, SIL, and the grands up at their cabin in the Sierras this weekend.

So, the enchilada dinner got put on hold, and I'm packing. Scrounged some leftovers instead. See y'all Sunday!

I love cheese and onion enchiladas with rice and beans, smothered in chili con carne. There is a joint near me that makes them just right. I actually thought about going there tonight, but decided to stay home.

Oh, for those of you wondering what I decided to eat, I went with the burger. Topped with cheddar and some spicy mayo. You can go to sleep now that you know what my decision was. Sorry to keep you awake.

ALOHA GUYS!

We went over to "the windward side of Oahu" to Kailua,
the next town over from KANEOHE.

We went shopping at our favorite Art Store and DH
got himself some gorgeous wall art.

Then lunch was in order

My Garlic Pesto Shrimp

It's a good thing that that meal was earlier than we usually have lunch!


We stopped at our favorite grocery store on the way
back to the apartment and got some fish

Speaking of walking, are you going to any of the other islands? A lot of walking in nature opportunities there. I hiked up to the top of a mountain in Kawaii (I was much younger), and it was better than meds. I sat there with my head literally in the clouds.

Y'know C-Dog, we don't go to the outer Islands,
mostly because it's cost prohibitive.
My Dad's family is from Hawaii Island, where the
active Volcano is; I spent alot of time there
as a younger person, as well DH and I would go
to Maui ALOT when I was in the Travel Industry.
I'd get comps all the time
That was also when round trip airfare was less than $25
Now, you're talkin' well north of $100 + car rental + hotel $$$$$$$$$

BTW, why don't you guys go to Hawaii in January, when it is cold in Cowboyville?

C-Dog, the weather in Hawaii during the Winter months, IMHO,
is pretty crumby and it ain't too bad in Cowboyville.

In fact, that's what DH and I were just talking about.
The last coupla days here in Honolulu have been real windy,
rainy and overcast for the most part.
But that's typical for the first week maybe here.
Next week will be gorgeous beach weather,
and we'll be getting our brown-on ... CHEE HOO!
