Maui for President 2017
We decided to vote Pineapple and will be going back to Maui in 2017. After hemming and hawing and checking our list twice we decided we've been good enough to have a Mauiversary. Normally we like doing things ourselves and in our own weirder way. I mean our trip in 2016 was funky and a bit off the beaten path, but since it's a Mauiversary we went resorty. Costco had a pretty decent packaged priced competively so we will be doing the un us like thing and go full resort just like most everybody else. We would have preferred Kihei but Kaanapali is not to shabby. Here's to sitting on the beach in 2017. Certainly more to come.
The Randall house is abuzz with talk of going back to Maui. It's been too long but we're looking into returning. We have a week or two window in feb. with flights still looking good and prices being good. But, then there is a sharp price increase. Or do we wait till early May and go in a different season and experience a slightly different Maui? We'll need to pull the trigger very quickly if we go for Feb.
We loved the tasty morsel known as the Spam Musubi. Great for a snack or breakfast. Think a spam sushi roll but slightly different. We've gone to a few Hawaiian restaurant since returning to Sacramento and chronicled it here. Then I had a brilliant idea.....
Order a kit online! So i had the Spam, bought the Nori seaweed, used some microwave rice and bout musubi mold or musubi press. Whichever you wan to call it.
The end result was tasty and I had fun making it but the rice fell apart. I'll need to get different rice next time and a rice cooker to try to make the rice stickier since I just used microwaveable rice to start with for convenience. My Musubi experiment still needs some hammering out but a delicious first attempt.
Fish Face Poke Bar Sacramento
Trying to relive our time on Maui we went to Fish Face Poke Bar for some before mentioned Poke and a Musubi (one of our favorite tasty things) The Poke was on point with big and perhaps a bit too much Ahi Tuna. The hoisin sauce added o the mix of greens.
The musubi was a hybird as we ordered it to go.. It was prepared and packaged by Fish Face but then the end user had to roll it. Kinda weird but enjoyable in a diy way.The weirdness lies in it not being able to consume immediately as one has to undo the seaweed from the packaging to then roll it. My rolling skills did not pass the test as it was a bit loose. Tasty though.
San Francisco to Maui, SFO to OGG
We've been looking into going back to Maui. Searching for deals and the one that jumps out was a round trip for under $300 per person by Virgin America. Recent news is Virgin America is to be bought by Alaska Air and I doubt we'll find fares that low again.
so we're back in Sacramento missing some hawaiian food so tried to track down some musubi. a few places popped up an we will visit them all.
i did buy some spam sushi named musubi at sunshine hawaiian bbq on folsom blvd to take to the wife for a jet lagged slice of maui craving lunch.
spam! spam! spam!
and for desert a hidden leftover gem from our baggage.
what a miserable california day. what???
its like a typhoon lite. wind whipped rain falling sideways. snarled commute.
why did we ever leave maui. its part of the U.S. so its not like overstaying a visa and theyd kick us out.
