    Very quickly fried beef patties, served in a baguette and eaten on the run. Many hours later, yoghurt and tangerines, eaten along with Christmas chocolates..

    No dinner served. No lunch, either. Not even any breakfast.

    The kids were offered breakfast at the music school, before going out in town to sing carols. Then the ludotec (like a library, but with toys) had a come-and-play day, with more stuff for them to eat. Then there were more cakes and pastries and sausage rolls and coke at the end of the day at the Jardin public.

    They're in bed with sore bellies.

    Another crap food day.

    We spent the entire day baking cookies. And eating cookies. And licking beaters and bowls. Cocolate chip cookies, gingerbread cookies, oatmeal cookies, peanut butter cookies, Nutella cookies, to name but a few.

    I did make a lovely taco soup...stewing beef, tomatoes, potatoes, greenbeans, corn, onion, garlic, carrot, pintobeans, celery, green pepper, tacospice, thyme, bay, beef stock cube...but nobody wanted much of it.

    Salmon - lots of salmon. Feeding guests from Sweden, before they head off to O`ahu tomorrow (one is originally from Kane`ohe.)

    Mostly home-made Cheesesteak Pizzas, based on a recipe I found here:

    http://www.beefitswhatsfordinner.com/recipes/

    (It's in the ground beef recipe category.)

    The recipe is seriously lacking in seasonings, so I added a BUNCH of minced garlic, some oregano, basil, crushed red pepper flakes -- I think that's it. Also, the capper, literally and figuratively, was the Sargento mozzarella-provolone blend I was stoked to find while shopping yesterday. My cheese-steak fix REQUIRES "provi" ...

    The filling was enough for two store-bought, ready-to-top, 12-inch pizza crusts, which I baked on pizza screens from MidCity Restaurant Supply at Y.Hata. The screens allow the crust-bottoms to be wonderfully crunchy, which they would not necessarily be, were they baked on a regular baking sheet or un-vented pizza pan.

    I hope you omnivores enjoy the beef Web site, BTW! I stumbled upon it yesterday and have bookmarked it.

    I had the same meat, cheese and shrimp as Helen. I opted for only one wine, no soda but I did indulge in a small piece of homemade macadamia nut pie. Ecstasy!!!

    It appears that Helen stayed a bit later than I did!

    Last night's dinner and today's lunch soup:

    A small jar of home-canned pork belly (I scraped off the lard to use another day), onion, garlic powder, thyme, bayleaf, Tabasco, salt, pepper, more pepper, vegetable stock cubes, pinto beans (cooked and dehydrated, from the prep cupboard), celery, potato, carrot...boil em up and then add curly cabbage chunks. Simmer some more and serve with cornbread.

    One cup cornmeal, one cup flour, 1/2 cup sugar, one teaspoon salt, 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder. Mix. In another bowl, mix a cup of milk and an egg with 1/3 cup oil, then mix that gently into the dry stuff. Bake at 400f for about half an hour.

    Christmas pudding and custard for dessert.

    After two big family dinners -- one at a cousin's house and one at a restaurant -- we're finally eating at home again tonight. My wife's roasting two whole chickens, cooking up some fresh spinach, and contemplating baking cookies or brownies for dessert.

    We went to have dinner at Blazin' Steaks on N. King Street. Located across Diners in Kalihi. It use to be Pizza Hut many years ago and then it was a Filipino Restaurant. The prices are reasonable.



    We ordered the 16oz. steaks for $10.00 each. Includes two scoop rice, toss salad and a soda. They slice the steak for you. It was tasty the only thing neba have much fat.heheheh

    Kal-Bi plate from Bob's Bar-B-Que in Kalihi.

    Mahalo for the pics of Blazin' Steaks, Auntie Lynn! I used to frequent that place when it was still Pizza Hut (since I only lived right down the road!). I think it's funny how the tenants post-Pizza Hut still haven't gotten rid of that ever familiar roof!

    I definitely need to check out Blazin Steaks'.

    Tonight was oven barbecued pork ribs, marinated in balsamic all day, then covered with my own recipe rub. So tender the bones fell out when I took them out of the pan. Made yam chips brushed with butter and sprinkled with a touch of cinnamon to go with. Plenty of leftovers for tomorrow.
