Cleaned out the chest freezer in the garage and found three bags of frozen turkey bones, one bag of sliced honey glazed ham and frozen laulau. It was like Thanksgiving in February last night. I made jook with the bones. Washed it all down with a cold brewski (Coors Light)

tried brining fowl for the first time ever. used hawaiian salt, fresh ground pepper, rosemary & thyme from the kcc farmer's market in my brine, in which i let chicken thighs swim overnight. then i broiled in eric's convection oven for 20 mins at 500 degrees, brought it down to 400 for another twenty minutes or so. made a side of braised broccoli rabe (also from the famer's market) and served with brown rice and a hunk of salt filone from the monster safeway down the hill, crisped up in the oven and spackled w/butter.

not bad for my first try. the skin came out with some crisp and the flesh inside was tender and steamingly moist. but i think next time i'll rinse off the brine or salt the brine a little less.

one thing tho--this little experiment has convinced us brining might be part of the secret behind the chicken at KJ's.

mr. scrivener, i should kiss you and buy you a six pack of non-canoe water just for your suggesting KJ's, by the way!

Home-made spaghetti. One thing I just discovered when making your spaghetti sauce. If you added too much tomato or it tastes too tomatoey, just add a packet of brown gravy mix to the sauce and it'll bring out the meat flavor over the tomato.

I made my first attempt at spaghetti sauce from scratch and it came out good after I added the gravy mix. Next time I'll stew the tomatoes before adding them to the sauce. I used cherry tomatoes too so I think that made it too tart.

mmmmmmmmm! sounds scrumptious! i make the furikake salmon, but minus the mayo. try to stay away from that as much as possible. nothing beats REAL MAYO!

so i made beef broccoli last night. not bad. followed a recipe from some chinese internet site. the meat turned out sooooooo tender, but i think it was missing something.

Caesar salad, incredibly good garlic bread, baked potato with the works, and a near-perfect filet mignon with bernaise sauce, at Haleiwa Joe's in Kaneohe, while looking at those gorgeous views of the gardens and the Ko`olau right at sunset.
It just doesn't get better than that. [/purr]

MAMA is not feeling well. Her favorite food is Japanese Cuisine. So I asked my friends on Twitter.com earlier today. Scrivener suggested Ideta. Located in Kalihi by Kapalama Canal. My heart of town.

What a delight to go again. The place is clean and the menu ~ so much to choose from. Prices are reasonable to the extreme. There's a sushi bar too. Our waitress, Cathy was friendly.

I wish I could say the same for the Hostess.

We ordered Pork Tofu, Fried Oysters, Ahi Sashimi and Shrimp Tempura.

Anyways, da Food ~ EXCELLENT!

Next time when you pan fry using olive oil add some basalmic vinegar to really bring out the seared flavor of chicken. Chicken and basalmic vinegar cooked together bring out this incredable marriage of flavor. The result is like your taste buds having an orgasm

oh, oh! what will the neighbors think? ah, who cares. yes. i never thought of that. you can do wonders with balsamic vinegar. balsamic vinegar and sugar brought to a slow boil then drizzled on strawberries. can add vanilla ice cream. sorry, off thread.

Tonight was Mexican Food! And what an EXCELLENT Find!

Right in the heart of Kalihi! On School Street across from Helena's Hawaiian Foods. The old Ayala's. I forgot to get the name of the place....I was too excited...nah, I was hungry. Den afta I was too full.

Complimentary Tortilla Chips with Salsa. We ordered Guacamole and the sizzling Mushroom with Montery Jack Cheese.

MAMA ordered a floured tortilla with everything in it. It was HUGE. I ordered the Chile Verde Plate. It gave me amnesia. ha ha ha

Tall Glasses of Iced Tea and the sweet sounds of a Mexican Man who sang.

Cha Cha Cha.

wild rice tabouleh (salad) and edamame imitation guacamole (i think it should be called edamame hummus, but spinach is also added). both recipes are taking from, "a dash of aloha, healthy hawai'i cuisine and lifestyle" recipe book.
