Weekend Review

1) I was told “We going make imu this weekend”……oh really???  Who is ‘we’?  Ha!  Okay, it’s not that bad.  A lot of hard work but worth every last bite!  AND, it’s just another reason to get together, eat, and drink!  Ah, I work for food and alcohol…psshhh!  Who am I kidding?  It’s a lot of hard work for the people actually working!  Me?  I was busy yapping my mouth with a sweet friend I haven’t seen for a while!  Anyway, anyone up for some laulau and kalua pig?  Obviously I was talking too much because this is the only picture I got.


Okay, just a little 411 just in case I’m blogging gibberish:
Imu: underground oven.  And no, we don’t cook in an imu everyday. 
Laulau: beef, fish, chicken, taro, or pork wrapped in luau (taro) leaves.
Kalua pig: shredded pork

2) We made dried fish.  It’s almost like beef jerky but instead of beef we use fish.  So, fish jerky!?!  It’s a great snack and it also goes well with beer.  My kids will eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner if they ruled the world.  It costs an arm and a leg if you were to buy it so The Mister had the bright idea of making our own.  Great!  I just hope he doesn’t ask me to sit on the side of the road and sell the stuff.  A big no thank you very much!

3) One of the carport’s posts decided to hit me while I was driving in.  It made a really big noise and I thought for sure it was going to come crashing down on me.  It shocked me so much that I was reverse psychology-ing  it; it, as in the post…

4) I finished my homework-finally.  That’s part of the reason I’ve been MIA in bloggerville.  I like the sound of bloggerville better than blogland.

5) And finally, to wrap up the weekend, we took a cruise down to Opihikau…

And Kapoho…

What a way to end a fabulous weekend :)
 
Also, Happy Birthday to my big-little bro!! Hope you all have a great week!
