Stop! And let me tell you about our Hawaiian vacation!
Aloha friends! Have you wondered where I’ve been? My daughter and I joined my friend Pam and her daughters and their friend, for a week’s vacation in Honolulu. Oh my, does her family have a true Hawaiian, hospitable spirit!! We were blessed!
Since I have a “foodie” blog – it would only be fitting to talk about our favorite foods and then, of course, our favorite beaches, and then our favorite foods. Oh, I think I already said foods. Yes, we ate our way through Honolulu, enjoying every bite.
Join me as I journey through our week.

Cheers to the best hosts on the island of Oahu - Grandpa Nick and Uncle Doug! And to my dear friend Pam, who was born and raised on the island, and who shared with us her beautiful heritage. I now see where she learned the gift of hospitality – and how she daily uses that gift in her own life!
Yes, we experienced the true Hawaiian spirit of hospitality in a way that our memories we will never lose.
