It's Aloha Friday and I went three towns up to the Hawaiian Food Truck to get us two Kalbi Plate Lunches for dinner.

We both had to taste test it while it was still hot.

Most ONO!!!

Well, the Mac Salad is a touch on the bland side for my likings and of DH said that I can have his scoop
The Kim Chee (or kimchi, whatever) is a bit tart, but plays very well with the fattiness of the meat.
The literal meaning of aloha is "the presence of breath" or "the breath of life."
Aloha is a way of living and treating each other with love and respect.

I baked some store bought, breaded haddock filets and some store bought shoestring potatoes. Served it with coleslaw I made this afternoon, malt vinegar, and lemon wedges. I won't be buying that brand of shoestring potatoes again. They were the store brand and a bargain. But, the thickness of the pieces was all over the place and that makes it hard to get them all cooked at the same time. They turned out okay and tasted fine. I used a purple carrot in the coleslaw. That slaw turned out great. We finished off the jordbærgrød (Danish strawberry dessert). I'm stuffed.

I made a simple dal, to try that new Sambar cucumber in. It was a simple dal, with mild seasonings (imagine that!), to see what the flavor was like in a cooked dish, and it was good, but next time it will have more seasonings. The flavor and aroma was mild, when raw, and no different than other cukes, but the seeds were barely forming. It seemed like it had stopped growing about 3 days ago, which is why I picked it, but next time I'll let it stay on longer. Also made some quick pickles, but they weren't quite ready yet.

Today was a dental work day. Soft food. And it was good.

Asparagus soup with small torn bread pieces.
Smoothy of carrots, sweet potato, orange, apple, pineapple.
Baked potatoes, sprinkle of vinegar and a little salt.

Pepperhead, that looks good!

I made standard salads tonight: iceberg, carrots, radishes, celery, tomatoes. Then Himself went into a food coma: I made fried bologna sandwiches for us tonight. Ghetto Gourmet! Lots of lettuce and tomato on the sandwiches to make them - healthier. We did have goodly portions of watermelon on the side. Later, we split the last of the strawberry ice cream. So good.

DD and I had pan fried skirt steak and creamed spinach.
