Month: February 2012
Sorry in advance for such a short post. I am trying to keep up with providing you all with tasty recipes while also trying to live life to the fullest for my 8 months in Hawaii. I know you are all awesome, so I am sure you understand. I am writing this post at 12:15 AM before heading to bed so that I can wake up at 5:30 to head to the North Shore to watch the sunrise and surfing before I go into work again tomorrow afternoon. =)
Happy Monday everybody! If you read my last post, you heard my side comment about my dream of opening a food truck. Many of you were intrigued by this, so I figured I would share a little bit about that with you all. I just love the idea of food trucks, being able to go where ever you want, the beach, a ski resort, main street, etc. I also love the fact that once you have made enough money you can pack up and go. Gives you time to do other things that you love. I would want to have a sandwich food truck; I love sandwiches. I think there are just so many possibilities and ways to be creative. My sandwiches would be super unique and out there, with the option to build your own as well. So there is a little bit about my dream of owning a food truck, haha. And yes, the squash are back. You didn’t think that winter was over yet did you?
Happy Friday! For once, I feel like this Friday is a weekend day; it feels great. I have two days off work and finally have a minute to take a breath and relax. I went to lunch with my roommate yesterday at a new restaurant called Jawaiian Irie Jerk Restaurant. It used to be a food truck, and was so popular that they turned it into a restaurant. Pretty cool story; definitely has added a little to my dream of owning a food truck! On another note, this friday we have a great guest blogger from the mainland; please welcome Kimby from A Little Lunch!

Wow, I feel like I have been going, going, going the past week or two. I have hardly had anytime to focus on my blog and get posts written; sorry if I haven’t been giving all of you the attention you deserve! I am working like a madman, but it is paying off! I have been training on grill and am LOVING it! Definitely need some practice but it is so exciting moving up in the kitchen finally.
Everybody watch out, I have had a creative moment so beware. I’m sure we all suffer from the same feeling; you know the one where you feel like you never have your own good recipe ideas and everybody else has the coolest ideas, so you just want to copy them? I am always trying to think up my own recipes, but very rarely do I actually think up a blog-worthy idea. So as you can guess I am VERY excited to share this recipe with you; it is my very own recipe brainchild. The one thing you will notice about my own recipes is that they always have some outrageous title, way longer than any should probably ever be. But just think of it as a way to attempt to show how deliciously packed the recipe is!
I am sure many of you are about to run away already, just from reading the title of this post. The rest are probably thinking, “We ask for Hawaiian recipes and THIS is what you give us?!” When I made this, I got a kick out of my mom’s comment, “I raised you better than that.” Haha! All I can say is hear me out. My roommate recently was given an assignment to try an ethnic recipe that was out of her comfort zone. Since we are both from Colorado, we were both a little freaked out by SPAM. Honestly, I didn’t even really know what it was until we looked for recipes. Many of you may not consider SPAM an ethnic food, but in Hawaii it kind of is! Every year over 20,000 people make their way to Waikiki for the yearly SPAM Jam festival- that is some love for SPAM.
After taking a break for January to get the New Year in order, Secret Recipe Club is back in action! If you do not already know, Secret Recipe Club is a fun group of bloggers who are assigned a fellow blogger each month (secretly) and chose one recipe from their blogger’s site to recreate for reveal day. I have met many awesome bloggers through this club and love browsing and trying their recipes!
