What's On Your Pupu Platter? ~ Wed. 5/8/19

We stopped off at our favorite shopping plaza to pick up the makings of a Pupu Platter or Nibbles for dinner tonight:

Starting at the upper right of the plate-
Cucumber Maki Sushi
Tako Poke (Cooked Octopus)
Ahi (Raw Tuna) Poke
Mussel (Cooked) Poke
Pipikaula Poke - think Beef Jerky, but really moist meat

YUM!

Did any one else have any thing to nibble on?

Wow..that looks wonderful Kgirl, and so glad you're having a great back home feast in the place you love so much.
We're back where we belong now and had a good dinner tonight of Costco loin lamb chops, glorified rice and spinach salads. No pictures, but it hit the spot.

It was taco Thursday at the doghouse. I grilled some well seasoned chicken thighs (salt, granulated garlic, and cayenne pepper), and made chicken tacos.

My wives fave bit of lamb, the loin chop, in tandoori spices.

The first official grilling of the season. I grilled a couple of burgers.

I pulled some ham and the last small casserole of mac-and-cheese from the freezer. Paired that with fresh corn off of the cob and fresh steamed broccoli. Last little bit of cornbread, too.

Grilled cheese with tomato soup. So American. These two foods were meant to go together.
