    last night: chicken taco salad (without the taco part just the flavor), homemade guacamole and salsa.

    isn't that place simply called...mexico restaurant?

    dinner last night came via a waikiki adventure. eric, our friend sam and i went to rumfire at the sheraton to enjoy the crab cakes with lemon verbena mojito shooter, meyer lemon tarragon aioli, the hoisin bbq sauce & mango chimichurri ribs, tobacco maui onion rings, and mahi tacos with asian guacamole, ginger-mango relish, shaved won bok slaw. we ordered three of their specialties: ginger essence white sangria (YUM!), sunset-tini (good), and the fire tea (boring). it's in the old esprit nightclub site, so it's a great place to bring a date, what with the ocean view & friendly, if not completely smooth, service and atmosphere. we all agreed it's a thirty-something version of the W.

    we then went to tsunami's waikiki on kuhio for guiness (sam & eric). i normally order stoli preses but absolut was on special so i got my pres with absolut instead ( i also prefer ginger ale, not 7up, in my preses). we hoped the pizza guy would be in when we got there but no dice--their one pizza guy wasn't there. bummer--they have the best pizza in waiks. but they were playing a lot of 90s alt-rock so that was fine.

    then we wandered onto kuhio, peeking into lotus sound bar, scruples, and mad dog. we eventually sauntered into kelly o'neill's for more guiness and great live music.

    finally, we stumbled out of KON & each grabbed a garlic sauced hot dog from the stand in front of moose's (ah, memories of drunken hot dog eating from back when i used to be a friday regular at moose's!). we ate them while traipsing the makai side of lewers. there was a line of college kids waiting to get into senor frog's, which we found amusing (we never were the "wait in line to get into a club" kind of peeps). eric thinks the glass structures overhead look like dotted toilet paper. *shrug* of course we miss house of hong (karaoke, derriere-grabbing) and the cellar (great music, steamy dance floor, the dolla bills on the ceiling). but we might check out yard house sometime.

    hmm. i guess our dinner last night was half liquid.

    we did! we haven't done any kind of bar hopping in years so our mini crawl was fun.

    your post reminds me that i've never made chop steak. *having thoughts*

    anyway, tonight eric and i decided to have another waikiki adventure. we went to rum fire again, this time for sunset cocktails in the "fire pit," an astroturfed outside area with relaxed seating highlighted by...fire pits (video at this link). because we were just adjacent to the pool area, we were able to enjoy karla akiona's halau's performance, too.

    after relishing the deconstructed pina colada (perfect if you're like eric and not a fan of blended drinks), cucumber & lavendar mojito (our server's favorite), ginger essence white sangria (i ordered this two nights ago; eric liked it so much he ordered it for himself last night) and the fire hydrate (for the tastiest "hammered & buzzed" experience i've had), we ambled over to the hyatt. thanks largely to this post in the japanese food thread, we made reservations at musashi and had the pleasure of enjoying kevin matsuda's performance. totally fun & omigawd, the food was ono--and there was so much of it! pomai pretty much summed up the experience well.

    homemade chicken piccata with the last Meyer lemon from the most recent crop squeezed all over its capers and mushrooms. Whole-wheat linguine, fresh, steamed broccoli. Leftovers for my man. He'll have a nice dinner to take to work tomorrow.

    I'm actually thinking of renaming chicken piccata "PMS Chicken" as I pound the itsh out of it and it feels good. LOL!

    Homemade bread and soup.

    Pumpkin and potato soup. Fry an onion and some garlic, add water and stock, cut in a potato or two and a good sized chunk of pumpkin, add a bayleaf and celery. Simmer til tender, then add a few triangle laughing cow cheeses and mix with the wand blender.

    It was also very good served cold with croutons for lunch, today.

    Sunday night: food poisoning, so...
    Monday night: ginger ale
    Tonight: who knows? Maybe soup.

    (Feeling much better now, thanks for asking. Between Sunday night and now - Tuesday afternoon - I've had three saltines and plenty liquids.)

    Heh - nah, I think it was the chicken dish at the restaurant we went to that night. It wasn't very good going down, and even worse upon its repeat visits. I know it's hard to confirm what causes f.p., but there were a lot of dots to connect to this one meal.

    It sucked that we were hours away from home at the time, so I couldn't really rest for quite a while, and couldn't even keep liquids down, so I was worried about dehydration. You know what I wanted more than anything else at the time? Shave ice. Didn't even want any flavor - just that fine, beautiful coolness - "sno-cones" on the Mainland are no comparison.
