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!

MOTHERS DAY DINNER

MOTHERS DAY DINNER
AT HOME

I am blessed to have the most incredible Wife in the World.  She is beautiful, smart, hard working and a great cook.  Since we rarely celebrate special events at restaurants, we both decided to have Mothers Day Dinner at home.  Of course my Wife took the lead as she was not only having dinner with our Family but with her Mother too.  She basically told me to stay out of her way and let her do her thing.  I did and the dinner was amazing.  We use a Crab Cake recipe taken from Roy's Restaurant and they are amazing.  When it comes to Steak, I can tell you that my Wife cooks them as good as any restaurant in Hawaii.  Definitely up there with Ruth Chris and Mortons.  She seasons and then sears the steaks on a cast iron pan and then finishes them in the oven to a perfect medium rare.  Believe me they are amazing.  We love Crab Legs and when Costco has the big ones we grab them.  So sweet and meaty.  Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Brussels Sprouts with Bacon completed the main course.  Unbelievable!!!!!  For dessert she came up with a Creme Brûlée, Berries and Chocolate covered strawberries.  Very blessed man and I know it.

I love Torrey Pines and La Jolla.  Now I love The Grill at Torrey Pines too.  Wow...what a great pre-golf round breakfast at the Grill.  Service was excellent and I loved the feel of the place.  The Tri Tip Birria and Eggs was phenomenal.  The Tortilla, marinated steak, eggs and avocado all came together.  Even the lettuce added some texture and crunch which I liked.  My buddy raved about the Corned Beef Hash with Poached Eggs and Potatoes.  So this place gets 5 Stars!

After an incredible round of golf at Torrey Pines, we headed into the Lodge to enjoy some cocktails and snacks.  Found the beautiful lanai open with great views of the pool, ocean and golf course.
Had a great waiter that took very good care of us.  Enjoyed Cheese Platter, Salumi Platter and Pate.
All really good.  What a great and very relaxing time sitting on the patio, talking story and enjoying the moment.  Several times I just looked out over the pool and said thank you Lord.
