Staying home tonight. My usual work week "eat-to-live" bowl of ready-to-eat S&S Saimin from "Cosco's". Always satisfies. Maybe a Melona bar later.

5 thumbs down dining in the office. Not dining, actually. Rather, snacking. Some cut up fresh fruit from the Costco deli. A meat stick from the Costco snack aisle. And now there's a greasy trackball attached to my 'puter. Oh well..."You wanted to be in show biz." as my dad used to say whenever I whined about the hours. :(

Call me anal, Tutusue, but when I eat at my computers, I usually cover the mouse with a napkin, paper towel, or BETTER YET a keiki butt wiper. We always have diaper wipes around for all purpose uses, and covering the computer mouse is one of them. When you're done you can wipe down the keyboard and the desk with it.

Just call me lazy, Lavagal! When all of my cylinders and pistons are operating in rested mode, yah, I pretty much do the same thing. But right now I'm just tryin' to get enough energy to walk from the computer to the bed...do not pass Go, do not collect $200. I have containers of those Clorox wipes thingies stored all over the place. Unfortunately, tonight, the closest container is further away than the bed!

A bit of a departure from dinner, but has anyone else discovered the fairly new Mr. Clean Magic Erasers? They're great for computers...esp. white iBooks! I cut one in fourths and keep one piece by each computer.

I now return you to your regularly scheduled dinner menu expose!

Clam Dip with Ruffles Chips. It's Friday, so wash down with one of them cold green things.

Aunty Nalani's Ono Clam Dip
2 eight oz. blocks Philadelphia cream cheese - softened at room temperature
1 tspn. Worcestershire Sauce (adjust to your taste)
1 tspn. Lemon Juice (adjust to your taste)
1 can minced clams - drained and save brine (add more if you like it really clammy)
1/3 cup cream (don't substitute with milk, it doesn't taste as good)
Fresh Cracked Black Pepper

Use an electric cake beater/mixer and combine cream cheese, worcestershire sauce, lemon juice and cream until fully combined and smooth. Slowly add clam brine until a smooth dip-like consistency is achieved. Fold in minced clams with a spoon until fully incorporated. Season with cracked black pepper. Refrigerate for 1 hour. Enjoy!

This dip is delicious with Ruffles regular Potato Chips (gotta be Ruffles!), Pretzels and those new Pita Chips from "Cosco's".

Yours truly in the kitchen tonight. One of our favorites! Penne with Asparagus and Mushrooms c/o Wolfgang Puck. Simple meal in itself. If you're a pasta lover, you MUST try this recipe*... absolutely delizioso!

Penne Pasta with Asparagus and Mushrooms

Add dry Penne Pasta to boiling salted water and cook until slightly under al dente. Drain and set aside.

In a large saute pan or Wok, add fresh raw asparagus, chopped in 1" sections, sliced fresh white mushrooms (or your favorite variety), minced garlic, fresh chopped thyme and oregano and saute for 1-2 minutes. Then add about 1 cup of canned chicken stock and a dab of butter. Allow stock to reduce to half.

When stock is reduced and asparagus and mushrooms are al dente, add the Penne, turn down heat and gently combine. Finish cooking everything together until Penne is fully cooked. Season with Kosher Salt and fresh cracked black pepper to taste. Serve with fresh grated Parmigiano Reggiano (Parmesan Cheese) and chiffonade of Basil.

A good glass of your favorite cheap wine rounds out this dish to date-plate perfection. ;)

Also works great as an accompaniment to grilled meats and fish.

*Measurements were left out because we don't have it. Yet, this is one of those dishes you can ad lib measurements to your own taste. With Asparagus and Mushrooms, you can't go wrong! You can also substitute the pasta with your own favorite, such as Tortellini or even Linguine. You may also add other ingredients such as onions and carrots, but it's best to keep it simple.

Re: Penne Pasta with Asparagus and Mushrooms

Cabernet Sauvignon (red). If we're having wine with a special meal, it's usually that. Merlot (red) works too.

But hey, if you like White Zinfandel or other, go for it!

Of course a Sommelier will say, "Because your dish is earthy yet light, I'd recommend Tannin this and acidity that"... yadda yadda yadda.

Even one of Kimo's custom-made Mai Tai or Bud Light would work. :D

Eating Pot roast beef from Spot's (at home because I refuse to leave the house should I miss volleyball for any possible reason...). I love, LOVE, this stuff. This is definitely the best pot roast I've ever eaten (of course I haven't eaten a great deal, but this is certainly my favorite). It's also kind of...the only thing I eat from Spot's at the moment (I'm not very adventurous in what I eat). I don't think I'll be eating any dessert after. If I do, it'll probably just one of those single serving cups of Raisin Bran Crunch (that office commerical got me hooked).

If you like pot roasts, use the dry Lipton Onion Soup mix. Easy and super ono!

Salt n' pepper the Chuck Roast then brown all sides in the pot (high heat). Sprinkle the Onion Soup mix over the roast, then pour enough chicken stock and some wine to cover about 1/4 up from the bottom of the roast. You can also use a can of cream of mushroom soup for added flavor.

Let da' buggah slow cook in pot on low for about 2-3 hours. In the last half hour of cooking add cuts of potato, celery and carrots. When veggies finish cooking, remove meat and veggies and set on serving platter. Thicken gravy with flour. Serve and enjoy.

Winnah!

Or, just go order 'em again at Spots.

Might go Shack HK tonight. Not sure yet.

Just drove down Kapahulu this evening. It's been several months since the last time.

Noticed HARPO's is CLOSED! Does anyone know when it closed? Guess the competition from Pizza Hut and Papa J's was too much for them.

Also noticed Dunkin' Donuts in the former Genki Sushi building near Diamond Head Video was closed too.

Ono Hawaiian Food is still goin' strong with a solid line in front tonight.

Genki Sushi (across the street in the former FHB location) was packed as always.

Pyramids Egyptian Cuisine is still open too. One place I haven't been yet that I MUST TRY.

A new place I noticed was - I think it was called - LA BAMBA's Mexican Restaurant on the Diamond Head side of Kapahulu.

For you Coscto shopping BBQ fans out there, there's a new seasoning that looks very interesting.

It's called Hawaiian Seasoning. Well somethin' like that. The ingredients include Hawaiian Salt, sugar, dehydrated ginger, garlic, green onions, paprika and a few other stuff. A large container is $8.99. Slighty higher than the McCormick stuff.

Reason I mention this, is because Lavagal wanted to know about the Montreal Seasoning, which I already explained in the "What's for Lunch" thread". If you're a steak lover, you HAVE to pick up that Montreal Seasoning!

I'm gonna' pick up that Hawaiian Seasoning this weekend and give it a shake on some BBQ Ribeyes. ;)

Today I'm making coq au vin. Yum.

Ooh la la.. French cookin'!

Not making this tonight, but here's my recipe for...

CLASSIC FRENCH RACK OF LAMB
Lamb rib racks (Costco or Sam's is the cheapest)
White Wine (of your choice)
Dijon Mustard (Grey Poupon)
Bread Crumbs (Panko works too!)
Fresh Garlic - minced
Fresh Rosemary - chopped
Fresh cracked black pepper and salt
Mint Jelly (this is a MUST!)

Preheat oven on BAKE at 400 degrees.

Combine chopped Rosemary, minced garlic and bread crumbs (or Panko) in a bowl and set aside.

Sprinkle enough white wine on Lamb racks to coat then season well with salt 'n pepper. Sear until browned on all sides. Remove from pan.

Take the browned Lamb racks and coat ONLY the meat portion with Dijon Mustard. Then dip that part in the bread crumb/garlic/rosemary mixture.

Place seared and coated lamb racks on broiler pan and bake until medium rare (approximately 30 minutes). Use a thermometer if necessary.

DON'T OVERCOOK or you'll ruin it. Rack of Lamb should be cooked medium-rare (slightly pink in the middle).

When done, remove from oven and let Lamb Racks sit for about 15 minutes to let juices settle. Then cut along each rib and portion to plate.

Serve with mint jelly and your choice of starch and vegetables.DON'T FORGET THE MINT JELLY... very IMPORTANT!

As an accompaniment, I would recommend Garlic Mashed Potato and Asparagus, along with a small portion of butter-sauteed mushrooms.

Garnish with a sprig of Rosemary and some Mint Leaves.

Definately a RED WINE (such as Cabernet Sauvignon) with this dish. ;)

Last night, rubber chicken (but a KILLER chocolate-raspberry dessert) at some charity auction at a hotel --- our halau did a brief show there, but at least they fed us, which is a rarity at these shows. (They also auctioned off a lu`au/show by our halau; brought a winning bid of $1250 - they are getting a bargain.)
Yesterday's lunch was better, though - but that's a different thread.

The Hawaii Association of Podcasters (http://www.hawaiipodcasting.com) met at Shokudo (http://www.shokudojapanese.com/) near Ala Moana for dinner last night. My wife and I found a sitter, so it was a rare treat to be out together. A good mix of menu items (http://www.shokudojapanese.com/menu_01a.html), from fancy shmancy to simple comfort foods. Tasty, and well presented.

We had pressed unagi sushi, gyoza, spicy fried chicken (a "seasonal special"), rice and a great bowl of clam miso soup. Since it's 'family style,' we also got to sample our tablemates' unagi rice ishikaya (they mush it up for you if you like), Spicy Tuna Roll and Grilled Yuzu Pepper Chicken, too.

A very neat place - good food and a great ambiance and energy.

Our very own glossyp introduced us to the place. She's even got a coupon (http://www.hawaiidiner.com/specials/special.php?special=75) online for a free soft drink (or half of a domestic beer). Check it out... highly recommended.

Dinner tonight? A simple tuna casserole. I'm looking forward to that, too!

Shokudo (http://www.shokudojapanese.com/) near Ala Moana

Ah yes, next to Pietro's. I was always curious about that place. Thanks for the review. We'll certainly check it out.

A few night's ago, my GF brought me home this delicous Chicken Curry topped over Udon Noodles from a place called Misuzu, just before Long's Moili'ili across the old stadium park.

The texture of the Udon (thick Japanese noodles) with the nice & flavorful Chicken Curry was sugoi oishii desu.

GF had the Oyaku Donburi, which she also said was delicious.

Misuzu is a small hole-in-the-wall Japanese restaurant just after this Japanese church and some other church. There's also a Vietnamese restauraunt near it. It's run by an older Japanese family who speaks little engrish. But the food (and prices) are so good!

What a nice thread. And appropriate too. I was driving home today from school, wondering what's for dinner. The weather today in Virginia is cold and rainy, the kind my wife calls "sinigang-y." So when we talked on the phone briefly, I said I'd stop by the Asian grocer and pick up some items for Filipino soup called sinigang. I make it my way, naturally.

green papaya
yard long string beans (sitaw)
bok choy
pigs' feet
tamarind sinigang powder mix

Serve with rice and you have a meal to warm up to.

Of course my son gave me da eye when saw me thawing the pigs' feet. Kids. Phweh.

The wife brought Korean food home from Hibiscus in Aina Haina. Pretty standard stuff: bbq chicken, bbq beef, meat jun. But the there was also something new for me: kim chee soup.

WIFE: "Try it, it's not that hot."

ME: "Uh, but it's all red."

WIFE: "Don't worry, I asked for medium."

As I slurped a spoonful of the soup my nose immediately began running, my eyebrows fell out and my okole trembled in fear for the soup's eventual exit journey.

Turns out when she ordered "medium", they gave her the size "medium." The spicy-ness, I suspect, was "napalm."

I've been ono for lumpia ... so that's what was for dinner last night as my "babies" (the twin sons'll be 13 in June) hosted a friend for a sleepover.

I made the entire package of Menlo lumpia wrappers (it says there are about 30, but I didn't count) ... and between the guest, the twins, my daughter and me (eldest son was at work), only had 4 lumpia left. I guess it came out good! :D

Since I fired up the deep fryer last night, I'm trying to figure out something else to deep fry tonight -- before the oil goes rancid.

Maybe some Italian arancino? Do I feel that ambitious? I dunno. I'll be on the foodie Web sites next.

No, I'm not supposed to eat anything deep-fried ... but you know, I was ono for lumpia for WEEKS!

At least I didn't mix sambal into my shoyu for dipping. :D

I must confess some smashed garlic seemed to find its way into the three simple sauces I prepared, and that's supposed to be a no-no as well -- but c'mon, how can a girl live without garlic?

I took out some boneless chicken thighs to defrost, thinking chicken katsu; but after reading all those Southern recipes, I'm thinking a more "haole" preparation. (I'm not Southern, but as previously stated somewhere, FOOD is my favorite).

There''s a zucchini that also may find itself breaded and fried, as long as I've got the time ...

Complicating my food preference today was the resumption of torrential rain. I didn't want to make a store run, so dinner's gotta be made from what I have on hand. Happily, this is within my abilities today and I know the kids are going to love it. Topped with melted cheese - what's not to love? Considering the butter and cheese already in the recipe, I doubt it needs to be served with MORE butter ... but you know Paula!

Last night I made deep-fried ricotta balls, from a Mario Batali recipe.
I don't have a digital camera -- so this won't be as visual a read as the anda-dog post. (sigh)

http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/recipes/recipe/0,,FOOD_9936_18282,00.html

ee notes:

Re, the ingredients:
-I bought the "tub" of Ricotta from Costco (Precious brand, I think)
and drained the needed amount.
-I didn't use real Parm; just the Kraft type
-Since I'd been to Costco, I didn't feel like making another trip to
another store for fresh Italian parsley, so I just substituted dried Basil and Oregano
-I don't know why the recipe calls for sliced garlic. I used crushed.
-1.5 t kosher salt is a might salty, but 1 t didn't seem enough to my
taste; I tasted the mix before adding the egg yolk
-I also used fresh-ground black pepper
-I used Progresso Italian-seasoned bread crumbs

I made the ricotta mixture; and even though I'd had it sitting in a
sieve for awhile prior to starting, it was still too wet to "roll," so
I shook in more Kraft Parm. Of course, REAL parm, finely grated would
have been better ... but it's $10/lb at Costco where the chunks ranged
from $18 to $30.

The mixture was still wet and soft. It was a hot day, so I did
quenelles (I think that's how you spell it, when you take two spoons
to shape an elongated "ball." I used two teaspoons.) I put these onto
a paper-towel-lined baking sheet to dry and put the baking sheet into
the fridge for about 15 minutes. They got nicely dried and firm enough
to roll into a ball shape for the next step.

I coated the ricotta balls in the egg and then the bread crumbs, but
because it says the bread crumbs should be firmly pressed into the
ricotta balls, I then rolled 'em between my hands. I put all on a
baking sheet to wait for cooking.

Even though I'd checked the temp of the hot olive oil, the first batch
burst a little bit, so the rolled, breaded balls, on the baking sheet,
went into the fridge for another 10 - 15 mins., before I tried to
finish frying 'em up. The two waves of fridge-time really helped. The
frying takes SECONDS. Don't try to multitask.

What also helped was having a spider to lower 4 ricotta balls into the
oil at a time, for keeping them moving, and then for removing them
from the oil onto another, paper-towel-lined baking sheet.

I sampled one, then let the three kids who were home try one (as pupu) ... and let's just say they loved 'em!

I served the deep-fried ricotta balls with meatballs in a "foundation"
of marinara sauce ... with some veg and bread on the side. The meatballs were the frozen type you get at Costco.

Time consuming, because of the refrigeration steps and waiting several
minutes for my "instant read" thermometer to measure the oil temp.,
but, it was a DEFINITE keeper meal, for when I have the time and
ingree-da-ments.

I'm impressed - that's an ambitious recipe and it sounds like it turned out really well! I agree that the secret to cooking in a hot non-a/c kitchen (like mine) is the refrigerator. I use it all summer long to stash anything that is going to be baked or fried. And, what is up with those "instant read" thermometers anyway???

Thanks, glossyp that's a nice compliment ... and great affirmation.

That "instant-read" thing is a total misnomer when it comes to the one I have. I definitely need a better one. If the recipe hadn't been so specific about the oil temp., I would have simply used my deep fryer. However, with only one setting, ("plugged in"), and no idea how hot it makes the oil, I decided on retaining control, to the degree that I could, on the stovetop. (No pun intended on the "degree" thing.)

They really did come out delicious, in spite of my substitutions.

Tried Islands Burger at Ala Moana (across Macaroni Grill). It was good, but not great. Overpriced just a little. Decent fries. Good rings, but a bit on the crunchy side for my tastes. I'm sure there's parmesan in the onion-ring breading.

Home-made veggie black-bean soup. I made a whole crock-pot of this and finally finished it off this week!

Falafel plate at the Greek Corner. Good, but not as good as the roasted meat plates; It was a lot more deep-fried food than I was in the mood for that day. The spanokopita was good, but why is that always such an overpriced dish? Greek salad yummy.

Flu prep pizza...it's the end of the month, so I get creative, and we practice for BF.

One raw pizza dough, covered in canned tomato paste, sprinkled with oregano, basil, and thyme, topped with dehydrated hamburger, onions, peppers, and mushrooms, grated canned cheese, and a can of olives. A splash of spiced olive oil, and baked I5 minutes at 400f....Mmmmm!

I didn't rehydrate the beef and vegetables, I just used a 'soppier' sauce, and let it sit for about ten minutes, before baking. It worked just fine.

Now, if I could just figure out how to can chorizo sausage, like in those big green cans, at Longs...

Mmmmm. Finally checked out the Green Door on Pauahi. We had a chicken curry, the spicy jumbo shrimp, an eggplant-tofu veggie stir-fry, two orders of the flatbread, and one order of the coconut rice. My friends and I were all very impressed, and we greatly enjoyed our meals. I was especially taken with the combination of the lightly-flavored, fluffy coconut rice and the chicken curry.

We ate off of styrene plates with plastic utensils. The food was brought to us in halves of styrene take-out plates. We sat on aluminum folding chairs. There were four tables in the place, and we got there first, but by the time we left there were people waiting outside.

I wouldn't try to order any kind of modifications to the orders as they're presented. We had great difficulty communicating with our waitress.

All that? Worth it. The three of us spent about twelve bucks each, including tip. Highly recommended.

It is what used to be known as $5 Friday ... but prices have gone up.

Nevertheless, we're having inexpensive Milena's take-n-bake pizza from Safeway tonight ... with a side-salad, if I feel like making one.

It's not Boston's white spino-and-gahlic (among my all-time favorites), but the sausage and pepperoni pizzas will suffice, on my budget (just one pie, even with salad, is not enough for my brood).

Two pizzas for like, $12 with my Safeway club card. I'm okay with that.

We had prep lasagna. Dehydrated hamburger, onion, garlic, celery, zucchini, canned mushrooms and spaghetti sauce, all mixed with very liquid tomato sauce, to make an extra-soppy sauce. Then a thin white sauce, made with a touch of mustard and some vegetable broth powder and milk. Then some grated canned cheese and home-made ricotta. All multi-layered with raw lasagna sheets...if you make the sauces a bit more soppy than usual, you don't have to cook the pasta first...just don't let it sit around, uncooked, bake it right after assembling, or it gets all gooey. The top layer was the white sauce, with grated cheese and breadcrumbs on top of that.

As the oven was already on, I did a chocolate cake, too. Mix 1/4 c vinegar, two eggs, a cup of oil, and 2 c water, 2 C sugar, 1/2 t salt, 3 c flour, 2 t baking soda, and 1/2 c of unsweetened cocoa. If you like, you can add a cup of coconut, too. Mix it for about two minutes, and bake at 350-375f for about 40 minutes, or til a toothpick poked into the middle comes out clean. (9x13" pan) Frost with a bar of dark chocolate melted and stirred with a dollop of cream or canned milk. If you are feeling creative, split the cake horizontally and fill with raspberry jam and whipped cream.

Heh, it's okay. She's a character from the video game Final Fantasy XII. Her name is Penelo, surprisingly she's not at all dimwitted though her character would normally be the "cutesy, goofball girl" that all the installments seem to have. She's fairly levelheaded. She's a dancer (thus her pose in my profile pic) but her main skills in the game are martial arts and archery so she can take care of herself when she needs to.

Haha, I'm highly attached to playing girls in said fighting games, even the real stereotypical school girls and overly sexy chicks, mostly 'cause I'm a girl and I always opt to play the females first if I can. I don't think I've ever played anyone but Chun Li in SF and Ling Xiaoyu in Tekken.

Speaking of girls, my cousin's daughter's b-day party was today so I had lotsa good stuff for lunch and dessert (which was my dinner, also). Ate orange chicken, teriyaki chicken (mmm Man Nani), dinner franks, hamburger curry, mac salad, hijiki rice (the only time mom will get me to eat clam), fried noodles, and some baby carrots and cucumbers. It sounds like a lot but I only took a little of each, I don't eat too much at parties.

For dessert I had a German chocolate cupcake with chantilly frosting, apple crisp, a really tasty haupia cake my aunt made, and some traditional rainbow jello that she also made. Well, she made EVERYTHING...except the hijiki rice, that was my mom. Either way it all tasted great.
