8-Hour Diet?

Brought to you by the editors at Rodale (The Abs Diet), now comes the 8-Hour Diet.  I somehow received an email looking for volunteers to test out this diet for 6 weeks, so the results could be used as testimonials backing up the program. I don’t normally fall into the fad diet trap.  I’m not … Continue reading

Food Review!

I’m back, at the end of a long, delicious weekend.  It’s not over, since tomorrow’s a holiday!  🙂  And, in the spirit of holidays, our neighbors have invited us for brunch:  crepes!  The guy spent two years living in France, so I guess he knows what he’s doing; the bonus is that he promised to … Continue reading

Southern Charm

I’m finding that these posts are getting harder and harder to maintain.  It’s partly because I have a tendency to juggle the same favorite meals from day to day, but it’s also because I have a non-nap-taking toddler on my hands these days! However, I mentioned the themed potlucks we’ve been having with the neighbors, … Continue reading

Garden Party

Garden Party

As mentioned in the last post, we’ve got a bit of a garden party tradition forming, where my neighbors and I have themed potlucks.  Next up?  Southern cooking. So we just had the last get-together, but I was excited to start finding stuff to make for the next one.  I’m thinking mock chicken’n dumplin’s might be … Continue reading

Vegetarian Spanish Tortilla

Happy Thursday, all! So, my neighbor and I came up with this brilliant plan to have a bi-monthly community dinner in our condo’s garden.  So far, it’s just been the two of us preparing any food (though other people have come to eat…), but hopefully it will start growing.  Each dinner will be themed, and … Continue reading

Weekend Recap

Weekend Recap

How was your weekend?  Good?  Ours, too! Saturday morning the boys went off to the beach since I had an editing job to do and needed the quiet!  The university is back in session, which means I’ll very likely be editing once or twice a week for one of the professors, who is a non-native … Continue reading

The Zucchini Bowl

The Zucchini Bowl

It’s been a while since we last spoke.  There hasn’t been much happening over this way, especially with the broken stroller.  But that’s been remedied as of this morning!  YAY!!! I did borrow my neighbor’s stroller this week to walk to Goodwill, because we were in desperate need of bowls.  I broke another of my … Continue reading

Sunny Saturday

Sunny Saturday

Seba’s best friend is coming back to the island this afternoon!  He is going to be thrilled.  We better take all the toys back that we borrowed from her before she realizes we’ve been playing with them without her! Last night’s pizza was pretty much a success.  Super delicious.  Soft and doughy.  And the asparagus … Continue reading

Playing With Fire

Playing With Fire

Yesterday was long. As Seba and I were trying to find some trouble to get ourselves into in the morning, the mister suggested we pop over to his office for a lunch date.  The university has a kind of courtyard in between some of the buildings, and it’s got a few trucks dedicated to self-sustaining, … Continue reading

The Latest

It seems I finally have a few quiet moments to myself, so I’m back to share a few of the most recent happenings from Honolulu Town.  And unfortunately, I have not taken any photos of the exciting goings-on!  Shame. Our newest neighbor, a 2-year old BOY(!!!), had a few days off from preschool and has … Continue reading
