    Lasagna & garlic bread (with a *gasp!* Mountain Dew) from a pizza/pasta stand in Pike Place Market, Seattle - where the fog of the past several days has actually burned off and revealed sunshine, for today at least.

    I made a pot of Jook so HUGE, it could feed an army. Which gives me an idea of somehow organizing a post-thanksgiving Jook meal for the homeless.

    With all the left-over turkey bones and pieces of meat donated from all the (fortunate) homes on the island, we could feed soul-warming bowls of Jook to those in need for weeks.

    The main obstacle I see in this idea are health regulation issues dealing with food service. I'm not sure if those same rules apply to non-profit charitable efforts or not. There's no guarantee that donated left-over turkey and bones are safe to consume.

    Well it's a good thought that just may be possible.

    B-T-W.. my Jook this year came out just as good as last.. awesome. Gotta' garnish da' buggah with peanuts, water chestnuts, choong choi and chinese parsley. That's the secret!

    On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being best, I gave it a 14.

    Major drool! That sounds wonderful!

    I'm still picking at the turkey and just finished the last of it. Yesterday I made 1.5 gallons of turkey soup and threw in all the leftover dressing, mashed potatoes, gravy and veggies. Really, really good if I do say so myself!

    Dang...I knew there was something I forgot to do! Oh well. I did manage to almost finish my Christmas shopping during lunchtime, tho'. Less calories that way!

    Went to L&L Hawaiian BBQ (Honolulu Walmart) for their Hamburger steak and a root beer. Its the first time I've seen small hamburgers (they gave me three, smothered in gravy).
    How'd I get so white and nerdy?

    Default The Lunch of Champions

    Wow! Had the Roselani's Pumpkin Pecan ice cream at Scoops in Aina Haina Shopping Center. (In a cup, not a cone, because I'm trying to watch my girlish figure.)

    If you like the Pumpkin Crunch dessert at Starbucks, you'll love this ice cream flavor. The wife had the Kona Mud Pie ice cream and she said it was good, too. But I couldn't be bothered with distracting my tastebuds from the goodness they were experiencing.

    Ice cream is my weakness.

    I'm quite proud of myself. I've started bringing lunch from home. Much as I love the food options downtown, I found I wasn't always making the healthiest choice, and even the "cheapest" choice wasn't that cheap. So, whenever possible, it's leftovers or something simple like soup and crackers.

    I do miss my Subway subs... so we'll see how long this lasts, or if it becomes a real New Year's resolution! Hey, this year's was "cut down soda," and I did -- went from three cans of full-test Coke a day to maybe one Diet Coke. I'm just as likely to just have water on hand.

    Make it a treat for yourself, Pz. As a reward for bringing lunch in, allow yourself a trip to Subway once a week, for example. You'll get to enjoy the taste you miss, you'll still be saving money, and it's good behavior to reward yourself on occasion.

    I love pumpkin anything and am so disappointed that Jamba Juice discontinued their pumpkin smash smoothie...altho' Randy said that flavor is available in Kailua! It's not in the Ward complex area, nor Kapolei. But...pumpkin pecan ice cream??? Oh my, that could almost make me drive from Makaha to Aina Haina. Almost, but not quite! Next time I'm in town, tho', I am sooooo there! Thanks for the heads up, Paul!

    Do you have a nuker in your office, Ryan? If so, you've got it made! I'm lucky enough to have, in addition to the nuker, a refrig w/freezer. When I cook at home I cook in bulk, freeze in individual portions then load the office freezer. Since I moved into that office over 9 years ago, I rarely go out for lunch except for client lunch meetings. Eating out 5 days a week is just too expensive, imnsho!

    Thanks, Leo... there will be periodic treats... but even going from five lunches out a week to two or one will hopefully mean a substantial change in my health, budget, and "free" time (though "lunch" is now something I can do while working)!

    Not only do we have a full-sized shared fridge, 2-2, but also a fully functional kitchen. Some of my coworkers cook lunch every day. They're largely my inspiration. Seems a waste to not take advantage of the facilities.

    Today was a pseudo-treat... it was leftovers, but from a dinner out last night (that my mother-in-law treated my wife and kids to). So, to get back on topic, my answer for today is, a Ruby Tuesday's burger and fries (re-crisped in a toaster oven)!
