WORLD'S BEST CHICKEN SALAD SANDWICH

 WORLD'S BEST CHICKEN SALAD SANDWICH
DINNER AT HOME

I love this Chicken Salad recipe so much and we use it for Tuna too.  We had leftover Rotisserie Chicken so I diced it up and added a bunch of veggies.  Added Lettuce, Tomato, Avocado and American Cheese to make the flavor of this sandwich pop.  Love it!

Epic day playing a very competitive round of golf on the Turtle Bay Palmer Course.
Our Team battled through 17 holes and were tied going to the Par 5 18th Hole.  Our tee shot was 230 yards from the water protected green and Greg Salas nailed a shot that put us on the green with a 40 foot putt for Eagle.  Robby Toma stepped in and nailed the 40 footer to give us the victory!
Taking down Rich Miano, Caymen Shutter, Gardner and Toma Sr. was so sweet!!!!!!

Salmon with Hollandaise Sauce once again.  This has got to be one of the families favorite dinners.
Never gets old and often crave it.  Asparagus and rice are the perfect sides for this dish.  Yummy!

Great to get back to Marco's Grill on Maui again.  This has been one of my "go to" places on Maui to enjoy breakfast or lunch with customers.  On this visit I had the House Specialty Vodka Rigatoni.  Asked for "spicy" and boom, they added lots of spice with Crushed Red Pepper Flakes.  Perfect heat for me.  Delicious dish!

GRILLED CENTER CUT RIB EYE WITH SALAD

GRILLED CENTER CUT RIB EYE WITH SALAD
DINNER AT HOME

This Center Cut Rib Eye we purchased at Costco was amazing.  As good or better than any Steakhouse.  Salt, Pepper and a little Brown Sugar on the steak.  Grilled on both sides and then finished in the oven.  Cooked to a perfect medium rare.  Served with Italian Chopped Salad.

JOSE'S MEXICAN CAFE AND CANTINA

JOSE'S MEXICAN CAFE AND CANTINA
1134 KOKO HEAD AVENUE

808-732-1833
HOURS:  Monday thru Thursday 11:00 AM - 10:00 PM
                 Friday and Saturday 11:00 AM - 11:00 PM / Sunday 11:00 AM - 9:00 PM

Surprised that my Daughter wanted to go to Jose's for some Mexican food because normally she says no when I get my taco cravings.  She normally sticks with a Quesadilla but this time went for a Cheese Enchilada with Beans and Rice ($13.95).  I tasted the Beans and Rice and Enchilada and thought all were pretty good.  She liked it too.  I always stick with (3) Shredded Beef Tacos ($13.95).  The Beef has flavor unlike most Hawaii Mexican restaurants.  I always take the lettuce they place on the plate and stuff it into the tacos.  These are the best Crunchy Tacos I have found in Hawaii.

BITE SQUAD DELIVERY

Watching a Movie and ordered Bite Squad delivery of Buca Di Beppo.  Simple Chopped Antipasti Salad and Supremo Italiano Pizza.  Like the Bite Squad platform and website.  They track your order like taking an Uber and food shows up when promised.  They now add the tip when you order so when the food is delivered you do not have to scramble to give a tip.  Food arrived in good shape but the pizza was a little cold.  Tasted ok though.  The Chopped Antipasti is loaded with meats and cheese.
