The main reason why my dearest darling dashing debonair dog-gone-gorgeous husband and I came to Oahu Hawaii to begin with this time is …
to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary.

We were married in a small, quaint courtyard at the Bishop Museum.
We had our reception right there as well with the most simple, delicious cake.
It took me awhile, but I found that same bakery and ordered a smaller version of our Wedding Cake for just the two of us to enjoy out on the lanai of this great apartment that we've rented for the month.

It's a flourless Chocolate Cake with a Raspberry filling and Chocolate Ganache Icing.
The original bakery, Mary Catherine's sold lock-stock-and-barrel to Cake Works, They have kept all of the recipes, as well as equipment and employees of Mary Catherine's and I was so pleased to find them.
It's really a delicious cake.

… broke da mouth ono kine food!!
We went here with our old friend, he introduced us to this great place. You order and eat family style, which you find a lot of places here in Hawaii, we ate...

We had enough leftover so that each household took home a Styrofoam box FULL of food!! :yum:

Side Street is one of my all time faves. The pork Chop is death row last meal kinda good!

The International Market Place

We had dinner at Flour & Barley Brick Oven Pizza
We shared a cheese Pizza and a Caesar Salad
It was just okay

Our last stop as we headed out to the airport
the next morning was Zippy's.
I had to get just one more fix before we left.

As our goodbye to Hawaii, for now,
I wanted to share a before and after
of our view for the past month.

Both DH and I commented on how GREEN
Diamond Head was, that we had NEVER, EVER
seen it like this before.
Granted, the State of Hawaii in general had epoch
rain fall just two weeks prior to our arrival

DSC00223.jpg
... there wasn't nearly enough rain to keep
everything as green, but still beautiful

ALOHA OE!

Of all the Hawaiian music I listen to while living there, this was my ultimate favorite song. I made a tape of it and it played it over and over on both sides of the tape and learned all the words. The sad part was that it is a good bye song.
