I had a long list of things I wanted to post today.  White Chunk Macadamia Nut Cookies, Hawaiian Style Short Ribs, Huli Huli Chicken, Coconut Ice Cream…Can you tell where my mind is? I’ll help you out; it’s right here:

That was the sunrise this morning. I’m playing hookie (like, from life- seriously you should all try it) this week and spending some time relaxing and playing with my husband and two of our best friends in one of our favorite places.

Seeing beautiful things everywhere

And we’re eating lots and lots of food, like one should on vacation.  I loved this dragon fruit.

This was seriously one of the best pizzas I’ve ever had.  Thin crust whole wheat crust, macadamia nut basil pesto, kalua pork, fresh pineapple and Hawaiian bbq sauce drizzle.  I totally have to recreate this one (and this one from last year; still haven’t done that!).  First I need a giant outdoor pit and a whole pig.  We’ll work on that.

In honor of Halloween, I must post this picture from under the candy corn tree.  Didn’t you all know candy corn grew on trees??  I’m sure someone can tell me what this actually is, but when I saw it I immediately yelled “Candy Corn!”

Now, as you can see I didn’t get around to making any of my good tropical ideas. I was too busy getting my life organized enough for me to forget about it all for a week (Why does it always take so much more time to prepare to leave, than to actually leave?)  So instead I’m giving you a quick and easy fall-ish dessert that I already had photographed and written up a few weeks ago. But I’m guessing no one will argue with that, right??



Enjoy that, and thanks in advance for being patient this week while both Kate and I are traveling.  We’ll be slow to answer emails and comments, but we’ll get to them as soon as we can.  And we’ll announce giveaway winners when we’re back as well, so make sure you enter the ones going on at The Scoop right now!
