Yesterday, we were headed to Kona, but were thwarted from our usual Saddle Road route due to a power pole being down. So, we turned around and decided we'd take the Hamakua route, instead. We hadn't been that way in about two years. It's very pretty -- lots of greenery, ocean, and then, closer to Waimea, bucolic pastureland. I'll pop a slide show in, below. From Hilo, it took a half-hour longer than the Saddle, but the sights made it enjoyable. Here is the slideshow. Menus will be posted below.
Sunday: Corn Chowder with Chicken, Red Peppers and Potatoes; Popovers
Monday: Brown Sugar and Balsamic Pork Loin, Italian Potatoes, and Tomato-Mozzarella Salad
Tuesday: Mediterranean Crepes filled with Langostino, Feta, Olives, Green Onion, and Artichoke Hearts
Wednesday: Tortilla Soup with Chicken, Black Beans, Corn, and Tomatoes topped with Avocado and Sour Cream; Tortilla Chips
Thursday: Salmon, Zesty Fries, and Coleslaw
Friday: Pasta Bake with Meatballs, Peppers, and Mushrooms
Saturday: Split-Pea Soup and Crackers
Let's hope we get a break from this rain, soon. Have a great week, everyone!
