While we were in Hawaii, I made our version of a Hawaiian Breakfast, or I should say that I made Aunt Robin’s version of a HB. Ever since we first ate this meal at her house years ago, my husband has been smitten with the artery-clogging, cloying breakfast. What’s on the plate? Spam marinated in homemade teriyaki sauce (equal parts Aloha soy sauce, sugar, and water with fresh garlic and ginger), Linguica (sweetened Portuguese style […]
Matsumoto Shave Ice.
For my whole life I’ve wanted to go to Hawaii. It was such a lucky trip thanks to generous people in my husband’s family. We needed a little break from our woes for a few days. (Still no job. Boo.)

Could I sell a car? To live there would be so nice. Anyone want to bankroll my family for a year there? Hey, we’ll live on the North Shore in a tent if we have to. […]

You see, my husband sustained a big cut on his left knee while he was snorkeling on the second day of our trip. We had literally only spent a total of 1 1/2 hours on the beach […]
