Steve, I'm sure you're gone by now, but they have really great coconut shrimp at the Outback.

My every Tues "lunch bunch" ladies had lunch at the Aloha Steak & Seafood today. The view from the boardwalk over the ocean with the pier and Channel islands was just breathtaking with the distant dark clouds filled with rain. I would have loved to stay till sunset, as I bet it was spectacular.

Oh yeah...cooking. I'm making Zuppa Tuscano with mixed southern greens instead of kale. We love that soup.

had to do baking for tomorrow's work luncheon, so I picked up a whole chicken and sides from the Peruvian restaurant next to my store, it's seriously fantastic!

Hubby thawed some ground buffalo we had in the freezer and turned it into burgers. We used these great jalapeno cheese buns the local grocery store makes. The side dish was seasoned sweet potatoes slices roasted in the oven.

I absolutely love coconut shrimp; I'll have to try it another time.

I had a nice wood fired ribeye, some asparagus, and a salad with blue cheese dressing. The blue cheese dressing was bordering on excellent, I might add.

Overall, I was fairly impressed. It was better than I was expecting.

I buy jumbo shrimp and use 3 or 4 to go with a modestly priced cut of steak. I've not made coconut shrimp marinade...I've just butter coated them with garlic powder. How do you coconut marinade 4 jumbo shrimp coconut style to go with a modestly priced steak? Does McCormick's sell coconut shavings or something?

The pork didn't happen today. Instead, we had soup again. Pork tomorrow? I'll find out tomorrow.

I did a freezer dive and came up with some homemade sausage, tomatoes and corn from the garden, so threw together a one skillet dish with sausage, chopped tomato, toasted corn, onion, garlic. Nothing special, just something quick that hit the spot (I had considered corn chowder, but decided to hold off on that until I have some shrimp to toss in).

Kayelle, I looked this restaurant up... I hope you gals had the Hula Pie!

Oh My Gravy All Over My Two Scoops Rice (that's OMG! in my world)

I LOVE Hula Pie, I haven't had that in the longest time!
I can't find Macadamia Nut Ice Cream here in the middle of the desert, or I'd make it myself, FOR SURE!

Do they also serve steamed white rice, the kind we like in Hawaii?
