LOBSTER FETTUCCINE IN HERBED CREAM SAUCE

LOBSTER FETTUCCINE IN HERBED CREAM SAUCE
DINNER AT HOME

My first attempt at Sous Vide Cooking was amazingly good.  This Lobster Fettuccine dish knocked it out of the park with flavor.  Entire family loved this.  I got the recipe from a book called Mastering the art of Sous Vide Cooking by Justice Steward.  The recipe was easy to follow with pretty basic ingredients.  The use of the lobster shells to make the cream sauce was key.  Added a depth of flavor that took this dish over the top.  This is definitely a restaurant quality dish you can cook at home.

OLIVE TREE CAFE

HOURS:  Daily 5PM - 10PM


Cannot believe I have not been to Olive Tree Cafe in what seems like over ten years.  Probably one of the best BYOB restaurants in Honolulu.  I arrived just before 5:00 PM and found many tables outside taken already.  By the time the place opened it was packed.  Everyone seemed to have bottles of wine or beer at their table.  I enjoyed the food and service at the counter was great.  There is a wine store next door so this is the perfect place to hang out and eat/drink.  My favorites were Greek Caviar and Lamb.  Delicious!  Loved the outdoor seating and party like vibe of this place.  Will be back soon.

Loved Uncle Bo's Pupu Bar and Grill on Kapahulu,  Great food and service.  The Clams here are awesome.  Some of the best in Hawaii.  What a great place to eat family style and enjoy a variety of dishes.  This may be another one of my "go to" spots like Side Street Inn!

OFF TO COLLEGE BBQ PARTY
DINNER AT HOME

Threw a little BBQ for my Daughter and her friends who are now all off to colleges around the country.  Invited some of my friends and a few other parents too.  Great food and fun time with the kids we have watched grow up over the last decade.  Sad to think that we may not see many of them for a long time.  Blessed for this evening and for our new outdoor BBQ area.
