AIR FRYER BUFFALO CHICKEN WINGS

AIR FRYER BUFFALO CHICKEN WINGS
DINNER AT HOME

Cooked up a delicious batch of Buffalo Chicken Wings in the Air Fryer.  Started by seasoning the Wings with Cajun Seasoning and Cayenne Pepper along with one tablespoon of Olive Oil.  Cooked at 380 degrees for 28 minutes.  The Wings came out perfectly cooked and crunchy on the outside.  I placed the cooked Wings in a bowl with Franks Hot Sauce and melted butter. Mixed it all up. 
Delicious Hot Wings at home without a lot of oil or deep frying.  Yes!!!!

CHICKEN MARSALA

 CHICKEN MARSALA
DINNER AT HOME

Emptying out the refrigerator and we had Crimini Mushrooms and some leftover Tagliatelle pasta.  Immediately thought of Chicken Marsala.  Checked to see if we had chicken and found we had boneless skinless chicken breasts.  Started by pounding out the chicken and then dredging in flour with salt and pepper.  Placed the chicken into a hot pan with olive oil.  Browned on each side and cooked through.  Removed the chicken and set aside.  Added a little bit more of olive oil to the pan and heated.  Added some shallots and garlic and then the sliced mushrooms.  Cooked the mushrooms down and then added 1/2 cup of Marsala.  Cooked off the alcohol and added 1/2 a cup of chicken stock.  Thickened the sauce with a bit of butter and then added the chicken into the sauce. Served over bed of pasta.  Delicious!
Note:  Next time I make this need more liquid so I will up the amount of Marsala and Stock.

SUSHI SASABUNE

SUSHI SASABUNE
1417 S KING STREET
HONOLULU, HI 96814
808-947-3800
HOURS:  Tuesday thru Friday 12-2PM / 5:30-10PM / Saturday 5:30PM-10PM
                 Closed Sunday and Monday

The motto at Sushi Sasabune is "Trust Me" and believe me I trust the Chef here because this was THE BEST Sushi meal of my life.  The Omakase menu translates to "I will leave it to you" which puts the Chef in charge of what you order.  There is no menu here except for Saki and drinks.  Once you sit down and are greeted the sushi courses start to arrive.  The wait staff brings each dish and then quickly explains the ingredients and location where it was sourced.  From Japan to New Zealand, Washington State, New Orleans and Hawaii, the fish is fresh and the highest quality.  The cost for this sushi adventure is $125 per person and by the end or even middle we were full.  Stuffed with some of the best sushi in Hawaii and best of all, we were satisfied.  Highlights for me were the Crab Stuffed Squid, Shrimp Miso Soup, Ahi Carpaccio and just about everything else.  Every set was delicious and we were so happy we made the reservation to eat at Sushi Sasabune.

JACK IN THE BOX MINI TACOS

JACK IN THE BOX MINI TACOS
LUNCH AT MY OFFICE

Finally got to try the new Jack in the Box Mini Tacos for lunch.  These little tacos are tasty but they really need some hot sauce or a dip.  Gets kind of dry just eating the tacos plain.  Recommend dipping in Taco Sauce, Salsa or Guacamole.  I liked them and actually just wanted to eat a few but ended up finishing them all.

CORN TORTILLA AND SOME KIND OF MEAT PASTE
A LITTLE LETTUCE AND HOT SAUCE WOULD BE NICE

BACON, LETTUCE, TOMATO AND EGG SANDWICH

BACON, LETTUCE, TOMATO AND EGG SANDWICH
DINNER AT HOME

We had a few hamburger buns and tomatoes left over from our weekend BBQ.  When I saw the tomatoes, I immediately thought of a Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato Sandwich.  Took it up a notch by adding an egg to my BLT.  Wow...this sandwich was amazing.  When the egg yoke soaked into the bread it was heaven on a bun.  Cannot wait to make another one of these!
