After a long flight we finally made it back from Hawaii on Monday afternoon….. Well, we physically made it back. I’m pretty sure mentally I’m still in Hawaii. Right now I’m not sure what’s worse the jet lag or the mountain of laundry.
Needless to say we had great trip full of adventure, golf, and some much needed relaxation before we hit the ground running at work in less than a month….
Plus we got to celebrate national Mai Tai day in Hawaii 🙂
One Day we went to an awesome Farmers Market…. and I ate Pie 🙂 It was a Macadamia Nut Pie.
Then we celebrated the 4th of July Island style at a local festival…. The food was yummy to, Kalua Pork, Sautéed Cabbage and Rice.
And we did a little hiking in Waimea Canyon… Dubbed the Grand Canyon of the Pacific. Then of course after a long day of hiking you have to stop for a Hawaiian Shaved Ice… Mmm Coconut, Banana and Strawberry!
Then more Golf and a cute little Baby Albatross with 90’s looking hair….
And more tasty food… This was fresh Poke (Ahi Tuna) and Rice along with a Pork Lau Lau From the Koloa Fish Market
And Dinner one night at Eating House 1849 was this amazing “Hot Pot” with rice, veggies and Hawaiian Butter Fish
We tried to go hiking again up on the north shore but due to a ton of rain we hit a road block….
So we found the beach instead….
Then it was out to dinner for our 11 Year wedding Anniversary
On the last day we did a little more sightseeing, played some mini-golf, and crammed in one more Hawaiian shaved ice… This time it was Banana, Coconut, Strawberry, and Vanilla with a snow cap (sweetened condensed milk) on top.
All topped off with a beautiful Hawaiian Sunset….
It was a great time and but I’m glad to be home. Now it’s time to get back to work in the kitchen and I’ve got a great recipe coming y’all’s way on Tuesday for a Tex-Mex Tortilla Mac & Cheese.
