    I have lived in Hawaii for about 13 years. Today I had my first Spam musubi. My very first. It was GREAT. It filled me up and kept me full all day and for most of the evening.

    Helen, I work in a high school. We try to keep things like lighters far away from the kiddies, so I don't keep one on school grounds! Besides, I like them at room temperature. I like them better cold, out of the fridge, but I forgot to put the can in the fridge this morning when I got to school.

    In Boy Scouts, we'd start a fire, put a water can over the flame, and everyone would toss their unopened cans right into the water. We did this with C-rations, too.

    Pan Fried Pork Chops, Cream style corn, Hot steam rice, and fresh mushroom gravy. My son and son-inlaw making it a delightful habit to check on MAMA, Antonio and me!

    I love to cook.

    Default Chicken of the Samoan Sea

    Oahu Melt Sammiches.

    Similar to a Tuna Melt, except use canned Wahoo (Ono) instead. Mix with a little mayo. Couple slices Swiss or American Cheese on bread of choice. Toast 'em. Easy and ONO. Literally!

    If anyone never tried the canned Wahoo (Ono) yet, it's similar to Tuna, except a little more salty, the meat is a little more white and has less of a "fishy" flavor. They're produced and packed in Samoa.

    Chargrilled Hamburger
    6 oz. hand-pattied with lettuce, red onion, tomato and mustard-mayo' sauce on gourmet sesame bun. Includes dill pickle, carrot and celery stick. $5.99

    Seriously, one of the BEST burgers on this island. Awesome chargrilled flavor. Burger fans MUST try this one.

    It must be hamburger day; after a year of looking, I think I may have found the best burger in Downtown Seattle, at the Pike Place Market Bar & Grill.
    1/3-pounder; I added blue cheese crumbles and bacon (oh, my heart!)

    Had a craving for a good knish yesterday so I went to the kosher bakery in the north end of town. Unfortunately, they had just moved to a new storefront, so the knish making had been delayed for a couple of weeks. Did buy an excellent chocolate babka, though. Yummy.

    We celebrated the unofficial birthday of our radio show in Seattle - 14 years on the community station - so half of the hosting `ohana came in to do the show, and we made a potluck out of it as well...
    -teriyaki drummettes
    -Portuguese sweet bread (homemade!)
    -toss salad
    -mac salad
    -lau lau
    -spam musubi
    -rice
    -haupia (regular & chocolate)
    We had enough to make up a plate for the Brazilian music host who comes in after us; she loved it.

    Aloha! I had Fresh Buterfish Filets, Poi, (raw crab), and ahi poki from Tamashiro Market!

    I took some pictures while shopping there today. It's a five minute walk from where I live. http://www.auntiepupule.com/blog

    Sushi today. Hamachi, prawn (whatever the Japanese name for that is) and California roll (hold the mayo). High protein, low fat. No more plate lunch for awhile -- I'm trying to shed a few pounds I gained during the past couple of months.

    Sushi ... yum. <slurp>
