I have such a small appetite that even a half sandwich hits the spot quite often. I always have a three egg salad with celery and onion in the fridge. Makes the perfect snack. And no work when I am feeling lazy.

Today for me it was a HUGE helping of Eggplant Parm. It was so fresh. Spike bought it for me from Meridian Market. The old Italian lady that does all the cooking, has been their for ages. She is the only one who does any of the cooking. Her grandchildren now run the store except for the cooking. She won't let anyone else do it. (Shhh! I am glad. More good food for me!) Even the dog loved it.

I worked late, so on my way home I stopped at a cheese shop, then a bakery and picked up a wheel of Brie, and a mini wheel of Camembert, and fresh, still-hot Kaiser rolls.

My boy and I enjoyed a really nice lunch of the cheeses, a ripe pear, and the fresh rolls.

So simple, but OMG so good.

I make a big pot of soup for my thermos each week a new soup. Really helps with these cold days

Portuguese Bean Soup
Man oh man oh man oh MAN!!!
THAT was not only ONO (that's delicious in Hawaiian)
but heart, soul and body warming.
We got 3 1/4 inches of snow last night,
and it can't decide to snow again
or sleet or both!

This is a true comfort dish from Hawaii,
using Portuguese Sausage
or Linguisa, smoked Ham Hocks, and veg.
I add the cooked Cabbage and Macaroni separately
to each bowl as I serve it.

I read over maybe 6 or 7 different recipes before deciding on my own version of this Hawaii-Style Soup.
But Chef Keoni probably is the closet style that I use...

MMM!

We met my SIL (DH's sister) and BIL as well as their good friend at
Duke Paoa Kahanamoku Lagoon, fronting the
Hilton Hawaiian Village for the afternoon.

Food Trucks on Oahu have always been a thing.
I can remember my Dad taking me to my first one
at Kewalo Basin Harbor at a very young age, and
I ain't exactly a spring chicken now

... back to lunch yesterday ...

There's been this great Food Truck at the Lagoon
for a pretty good long time, and every thing
they serve is wonderful!
Gilligan's Beach Shack
We shared a fresh Mahi Mahi Taco Plate,
I was so excited that I forgot to take a photo!
I guess we'll need to go back!!!
