Cool Happy Aloha Friday! ~ What's Your Luau Look Like! ~ 5/7/2021

On our Luau table this evening will be Kalua Pig & Cabbage,
served over that ever present steamed White Rice.

... small-ish Pork Butts are hard to come by!
So I wind up with a bunch of meat.

... I portion it off, vacuum seal them, and freeze them for later enjoyment.

What's your luau look like?

Neither of us had any spoons today, so we ordered burrito bowls from the local TexMex place. They were good.

I believe that roasted enormous chicken is on the menu. It will be juicy, and tasty.

We had an Ozarks Luau.
HB patties and mashed potatoes, with white gravy. Because we are from Cali, we also had tomatoes and avocados.

Apple strudel was dessert.

I had leftover chicken seasoned with za'atar, so I made a Turkish-inspired soup. It has onions, garlic, bell peppers, tomato paste, a can of diced tomatoes and orzo, and is seasoned with sumac, Aleppo pepper and lots of fresh parsley from the garden. I served it with ciabatta toast and a dollop of kefir. Yum.
