That's why I thoroughly enjoyed my loco moco with extra gravy today. Damn the calories... full speed ahead!

Leftovers:
Homemade roasted eggplant lasagna and homemade Italian wedding soup with meatballs. My neighbor blessed me with an abundance of eggplant from her garden. The week previous I gave her three pounds of shrimp from work. It's nice to treat your neighbors, especially during the holidays!

Today was the employee appreciation Christmas luncheon at my office. Barbeque ribs, fried chicken, cornbread with butter and honey, baked beans, and of course rice, mac salad, and mixed greens. For dessert, two "chocolate fountains" with fruit, pretzels and chips for dipping, and a "sundae station" with all the fixings.

I was actually part of the organizing team, so I worked up an appetite in setup and staffing... then gorged myself silly after everyone left at about 3 p.m. I think I can skip dinner tonight!

Started off the year right, with leftovers! Chicken curry and rice. Simple, but hearty and filling.

Grilled cheese and tomato soup and drink was bottled water. It's been COLD here in Southern California. Raining the last few days with a good amount of wind, not that I'm complaining as I like the rain. Makes for cozy nights in bed.

Tried the new Auntie Pasto's in Kunia. Food was okay but boy do they need to clean that place! The crew from the night before obviously didn't clean up and the morning crew must not have bothered. Not a good sign for what is really a brand-new restaurant. And, I'm no clean freak having been known to eat grub (grubs too sometimes!) from street vendors with questionable sanitation practices. I just expect a better standard of cleanliness from this type of restaurant.

Kilinahe and I were invited by glossyp to check out Tapioca Express, a little spot across from the Convention Center. (a few blurry cameraphone photos starting here!) The parking isn't bad, just tricky to find. The food, on balance, was pretty good. Right next door to XO and a few other eateries, I wish it luck in carving out a space for the "snack and lounge" crowd (the place had big comfy couches and free wi-fi).

The mochiko chicken in particular was really good - crisp, moist and tender without being greasy. The kalbi was also good featuring boneless meat and the marination was a bit tangy and not too sweet.

To celebrate Chinese New Year, we went to Doong Koong Lau and had their special Monk's food and some of our favorite dim sum: hum bow, ha gow, siu mai, jin doi, roast duck, beef chow fun, and sweet bean buns washed down with hot tea. Doong Koong Lau is right across the street from a Gold's Gym, so as we were pigging out, we were watching people going through their paces on the treadmill.

Today was our daughter's eight birthday party. A picnic in the park. Thank the gods the weather was just right, after a week of biting nails. We had hot dogs (Costco of course), my wife's vegetarian chili, her salsa with chips (Costco again), some herb chicken wings, drinks, and of course a birthday cake. Others brought snacks.

A great day, but I'm beat, and I think a little sunburnt!
