CPK/Summer 2011

During the summer, I heard that CPK had gluten free items on their menu, so one day when we were at Ala Moana, I had to try the food there. This was their Waldorf Salad, a half-order, without nuts and cheese. I had the dressing on the side, of course. It tasted good, but it wasn't very filling and I got hungry a few hours after eating it. It was also pretty expensive. I would have tried the pizza, but I couldn't eat the whole pie by myself.
I recently heard that CPK removed their gluten free pizza from the menu due to cross-contamination issues. It's a good thing I didn't order the pizza. I don't think I'll be going back there anytime soon.

The next picture is of how the summer went for both DDs. It was the summer of removing wisdom teeth. Ouch!

I also discovered gluten free pizza at Down to Earth. It is the best gluten free pizza I've eaten. It soon became my weekly treat. I've had to stop this recently. I will explain about it in another post.

 I saw this quilt at the Hawaii Women's Expo. I almost ordered the kit for it, like I could make it (haha). I think my skills are not that well developed yet to make something like can dream right?

The last picture is of a big green lizard. It looks like it is a good six inches. I don't know what kind it is. This particular lizard lives at my voice teacher's house in Manoa. If you know what kind of lizard it is, please tell me. I would like to know.

Memorial Day

We visited the Veteran's Cemetery on Memorial Day to put flowers on my FIL's grave. I think the Boy Scouts always put flags on all the veteran's graves along with leis. They try to put fresh flower leis, but since the public schools got out before Memorial Day, some of the graves had plastic flower leis on them. The plastic ones looked real until you inspected them closely.

A Planning Meeting

 So much has happened since the last time I posted. We had dinner at PF Chang's (my favorite restaurant). We had the gluten free Singapore Noodles, Philip's Better Lemon Chicken, and Chicken Broccoli. Needless to say, the food was delicious. I think this was when we planned for DD#2's graduation party.
