GROUND TURKEY TACOS


GROUND TURKEY TACOS
DINNER AT HOME

We had some ground turkey meat leftover from a batch I made for spaghetti.  Decided to make tacos using the meat.  Easy recipe with ground turkey, taco spices, lettuce, pico de Gallo and cheese.  Plus hot sauce.

DINNER AT HOME

Yes I am posting my Shrimp Tempura Tacos again.  They are so so good.  Delicious and very satisfying.  The White Sauce with Plain Yogurt, Mayonnaise and Lime Juice make these tacos pop with flavor and the Cabbage, Cheddar Cheese Pico de Gallo, Jalapeño, Avocado and Cotijo Cheese make these one of my favorite tacos on the planet!

 Entire family enjoyed our visit to Shabuya.  This all-you-can-eat restaurant serves up some high quality food.  For $27.99 you can load up on veggies, noodles, seafood and tons of meat.  Basically load everything into a bowl of broth that simmers right at your table.  Each person gets their own electric burner with temperature control and bowl of broth.  You can change broth bowls as many times as you wish and the meats come in groups of four.  When you finish all four you can order another four meats and they just keep on coming.  I loaded up on seafood before our meats arrived so our table of three only ordered one set of meats while other tables were going through dozens.  I enjoyed the flavor and heat of the Spicy Miso Broth.  Loved the clams.  The crab was good too but a lot of work to get the meat.  We did not realize that the appetizers were included until after we were eating our main courses.  Ordered a couple to try late in the game and they were good.  Liked the Gyoza.  Thinking back now, I am getting hungry and want to go back here right now!

CHICKEN MOZZARELLA

CHICKEN MOZZARELLA
DINNER AT HOME

We bought a bunch of Mozzarella Cheese for a recipe that was never made so I had to come up with a another recipe to use the Mozzarella.  Turned Chicken Breasts into a delicious Chicken Mozzarella and served it over pasta.  Super simple to season and then sautés and brown chicken in a pan.  Add Marinara or Spaghetti Sauce and simmer.  Top with cheese and place under broiler until golden brown.  Really good and really cheesy.

Blessed to spend a Saturday at Oahu Country Club eating, drinking and playing golf with some incredible guys.  We started our morning with breakfast at the Mauka Grille before hitting the links.  I enjoyed a little bubbly with Eggs Benedict with Fried Rice.  Delicious...  The course was in good shape and the weather was beautiful making this a very enjoyable day.

I enjoy sitting on the lanai at the Mauka Grille and enjoying lunch before an afternoon of golf at Oahu Country Club.  Service is good and the food and menu is improving.  On this visit I enjoyed a small Caesar Salad with the Fresh Catch of the Day which was Mahi Mahi.  Really delicious, light and the perfect amount of food for me before golfing.  Shot well this day and completed my round using a single golf ball.  Using one ball at Oahu Country Club is something to me because I usually lose a bunch.  Shot an 88 and won a little cash too!
