Arrow Happy Aloha Friday ~ May, 3 2019 ~ From Honolulu Hawaii

CHEE HOO!

ALOHA everyone!

Today, we've started out our day in a very typical "Local" way:

I made us two Portuguese Sausage Eggs and Rice
(we say it as though it were one word )

We're headed over to KANEOHE for the day and will
probably have linner at one of our favorite joints
on the other side of the Island of Oahu.

Oh yeah, did I mention that we're in Hawaii?

Aloha! We're having spanakopita (we say it as one word) and salad for dinner.

Oh, did I mention we are NOT in Hawaii?!

I'm not going to be eating pizza in Hawaii.

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

Aloha!

Asian tonight.

Seafood salad, shrimp and squid this time, over a bed of grated carrots and sliced cucumbers, with a kimchi base/honey dressing.

Vege tempura, sweet potato, zucchini and mushrooms, with a sauce made from soft peak whipped cream and wasabi.

Beef tataki, heavily black peppered, seared tenderloin marinated in soy sauce, mirin, garlic, green onions, with a homemade ponzu sauce.

Rub it in. We're 48 F and off and on rain. I thought we were going to have just a cloudy afternoon, so I took my bike to the grocery store, but it started raining on the way back. It seemed like a good idea at the time.

Dinner tonight was a stir fry of shrimp, asparagus, and water chestnuts, served over rice.

I am having second thoughts. It is not raining, for the first day all week. I may grill up a cheeseburger instead of baking a pizza. I'll keep you posted... I'm sure you won't be able to sleep if don't tell you what I decided on.

Aloha back, K-Girl! Have a wonderful visit home.

Lovely looking dinners tonight. I made "all my life's a circle" salads (everything cut into discs) and made more Philly cheese steak sandwiches with the leftovers. Blackberry-peach shortcakes later, during Blue Bloods
