    Soup & salad, over at the UW campus. Man, they really renovated the campus food court in the decade I was away. It used to be very "institutional" and cold in design - now, there are distinctly different food zones, offering pizza, sub sandwiches, pasta, salads, burgers, Asian food, etc.

    Mom brought me leftover Pizza Hut pizza from work. Pepperoni and one with roasted garlic, baby spinach, and tomatoes. That was tastyyyy. I never eat anything other than pepperoni. Maybe pepperoni with mushrooms and olives. But I totally want more of that garlic/spinach/tomato one.

    Lunch was brunch. I had smoked salmon with two Arturo's brand, supposedly Hawaii-made, fat free tortillas made with oat flour, and topped that with freshly made salsa, with plenty of raw onion, garlic and a bit of raw jalapeno.

    Dinner....oh, that's another thread, burp~

    yesterday's lunch, after the big bum-out re the closing of imari bento, was from another sam sung plaza tenant, elim bakery & juice. the name puzzles me bcs i've never seen any baked goods nor juice in there. the only dessert-y thing they have is a shave ice with fruit and azuki beans. we go to elim for homestyle korean food at a reasonable price. a former (korean) boss of mine introduced me to the place about seven years ago.

    eric had the kim chee hamburger steak. it doesn't have any visible kim chee in it but it does have some of that flavor. maybe they use the kim chee pickle liquid in the mix. anyway, the gravy's quite good, and they give two nicely sized, tender patties.

    i ordered the pork stir fry. it's made with thinly sliced pork belly, squash, cabbage, onions and ko choo jang/kim chee sauce.

    they give sides of korean style takuan, which is a little tangier than japanese style, kim chee (korean strength and yummy!), pickled sweet/hot peppers and a bit of seaweedy soup with some fishcake in it.

    i also recommend their homemade man doo (either fried or steamed--they make it in store, and it puts the frozen kine you buy at the grocery to shame!) and their noodle soups. their kim pap (korean sushi) is also quite good and for less than $4.00, quite satisfying. those of you who are as picky about rice as eric and i are will find elim's rice excellent--it's shimmery, uniform in appearance, and slightly sweet.

    I whipped out the crock pot yesterday and made a pot of slow-cooked ham bone soup for dinner last night. Today I had it for lunch.

    I make all of my soups from scratch and this one was a winner. I started with one big ham bone (frozen from Thanksgiving) with some generous portions of meat and fat coupled with the honey glazing.

    I added enough water to cover about two thirds of the bone and let it come to a boil. I added some Black-eyed peas that were soaking for a few hours, carrots, potatoes, celery, onions, and diced tomatoes.

    Taking it down to a simmer I added garlic, alae salt, ginger, black pepper, parsley, oregano and a bay leaf.

    About 15-minutes before serving I added corn starch to thicken the soup and added some maple syrup to give it a hearty flavor.

    This morning I took out the pot and reheated it but this time adding some Rotini noodles and a bit more corn starch turning the left over soup into a very rich Ham stew.

    So for lunch today it was Ham stew over rice and a nice bottle of Smirnoff Ice Wild Grape malt beverage (flavored beer) under the Avacado tree with the sound of a nice breeze whistling thru my Ironwoods and the waves crashing in the distance.

    Now that's how to have a lunch on a Tuesday.

    Amen to that. Sure sounds good!
    For me it was a Loco Moco from KJ's Local Grindz and a glass of milk, while sitting on my front lanai looking out over Kaneohe Bay. Light breeze and, of course, no waves crashing here, but they sure are out on the reef.

    Ahhh yeah, life's good for me. Bills paid, getting a buzz on a Tuesday afternoon on a full tummy while everybody else is at work. Sooooo relaxing. Man this feels like a Corona beer commercial

    You've already got a theme song, Craig -- Jonathan Edwards classic bluesy 1971 "Shanty": "We're gonna lay around the shanty, mama, and put a good buzz on."
    Listen to it at this link and then tell me you've adopted this song!
    Awesome harmonica, too.
