Hawaii FIVE – 0

6 Comments

Hard to believe my hubby is 5-0!!!  We decided to celebrate in Hawaiian style, except the food was our favorite street taco guy :0)  I think it was a good time had by all. Any reason to try out some new cocktails and some comfort food.

What is a Luau without a mai tai?  Here are the items we used to create our version.  We actually ran out 3 times…thats a good mai tai!

We have this joke bottle of Hypnotique that we (ok Matt) were finally able to finish off with this very lovely cocktail. Almost too pretty to drink…almost!

A few appetizers to start off the evening..

Tiki?! Tacos?!  Same thing, right?!

Meats, Rice and Beans…

All the fixin’s…

Look at this yummy plate…

And what is a party without cupcakes?!

A Beautiful Salad

Leave a comment

We were hungry and it was hot, so we decided on a wonderful cool fruit salad with a little protein from some left over chicken.  It tasted as good as it looks.

Look at those colorful blueberries!

And a little Tzatziki and Pita from the Local Farmer’s market.

Monday 7/9/12

Yet another slight variation on the beautiful salad, enjoyed on the patio.  No cranberries or strawberries this time, but still just as pretty and delicious.  Doesn’t even need dressing!

The Fair and Sushi?!

We love sushi so why not make it at home?! Especially when your friend gets sold on a sushi maker at the fair..Then her and her husband were kind enough to invite us over to try out this new gadget. Not only did we have a blast, it was really yummy. We all had a turn and came up with some fun recipes…PB&J roll, cookie dough and nutella roll, yum!  Not so bad for our first time.

All the fixin’s…

Doesn’t look so appetizing, but was really good…Cookie Dough and Nutella Roll.
