Hands down one of my favorite steaks in the World is D.K.'s Paniolo Rib Eye.  The steak is also the favorite of my Family and many good friends.  The steak is covered in a special seasoning and served with sweet Maui Onions.  Always cooked to perfection and delicious.  On this visit I went with the French Onion Soup and it was really good.  To finish our meal we enjoyed the Mud Pie which is off the charts delicious.

CALIFORNIA PIZZA KITCHEN BBQ CHICKEN PIZZA

CALIFORNIA PIZZA KITCHEN - BBQ CHICKEN PIZZA
DINNER AT HOME

Picked up a box of (3) BBQ Chicken Pizzas at Costco for around $15.  The price was right but the pizza was not.  Don't get me wrong the pizza was not that bad but it just did not compare to the pizza we enjoy at the restaurants.  The toppings were a bit sparse and the flavor was a bit bland.  Pizza a bit dry too.  The entire family was in agreement not to buy these pizzas again.

My second visit to Jersey Mike's Subs in Hawaii Kai was better than the first.  The guy behind the counter was an awesome sandwich maker and the kind of person that can talk to anyone.  He engaged us through the entire sandwich making process and delivered a great product.  I enjoyed The Italian ($15.95) and loved it.  So big it took two days to eat.  One tip is that if the sandwich is going to sit for awhile or overnight, get the Oil and Vinegar on the side.  The sandwich becomes very soggy after a few hours.

I am not a big breakfast person but if I stay on Lanai again I will definitely return to the Blue Ginger Cafe.  This place serves up a delicious breakfast.  Loved my Eggs with Portuguese Sausage and Fried Rice.  Sat on the lani out front and enjoyed the morning here.  Just perfect!

LANAI BBQ

LANAI BBQ
SOMEWHERE ON THE ISLAND OF LANAI

I was reluctant to attend a local BBQ on the Island of Lanai with a bunch of golfers from the Lanai Classic Golf Tournament.  I only knew one person and thought that I would be uncomfortable with so many strangers.  Boy was I wrong.  Ended up closing down the party and was one of the last to leave.  
The food and people were amazing.  Just the nicest people in the World who have no attitudes and just want to share stories, drink, eat and have fun.  Loved this night on Lanai

HANGIN OUT IN THIS GARAGE ON LANAI WAS FANTASTIC
FOOD HERE WAS AMAZING
GREAT FOOD, PEOPLE AND A LITTLE VINO - DOESN'T GET MUCH BETTER THAN THIS!

I have been blessed to play some beautiful golf course throughout America and Scotland.  Manele Bay is up there with the best of them for pure beauty.  Every hole seems to have a view that takes your breath away.  The course is in terrific shape and looks at many times like a painting.  Playing two rounds here over a weekend was pure joy.  One of the best golf experiences of my life.
