I'm a little bit of a vintage car nut, so I was sort of surprised when I recently saw this car on Maui last week and couldn't figure out what it was. I had to take a photo of the name: An Astre SJ. Turns out it was a Pontiac version of Chevy's Vega. (Mr. L guessed correctly, so he gets points.) It was so beautifully and lovingly restored. Being a car nut in Hawaii is especially challenging -- finding parts and getting them shipped ($$$) is no small task. At one time I had some fun and exotic cars -- those days are over. If I can't get replacement parts here, forget it. Reliability is a big deal. Credit to its owner for his or her hard work. It's a beauty.
We had a Plan A and Plan B of restaurants to try out today, but both were closed. Since we still had to do our Costco shopping and were starving by 2:30, we decided we'd just pick something up there for lunch. I got the Turkey and Provolone sandwiches for both of us. Holy smokes! They are great! Just out of curiosity, I googled, them, and I'm not the only one who thought so. Here is one blogger who figured out the recipe. At $4, they are hard to beat. So yes, Costco is my "restaurant recommendation" for the week.
Here are the week's menus:
Sunday: (Naturally) Costco Flatbread Pizzas
Tuesday: Enchiladas and Green Salad with Avocados and Tomatoes
Wednesday: Scampi; Italian Salad (with Artichoke Hearts, Olives, and Parmesan)
Thursday: Salmon; Twice-Baked Potatoes, and Broccoli with Dijon-Mustard Sauce
Friday: Kabocha Soup with Rice, Chicken, Peanuts and Cilantro
Have a great week, everyone! - C. Ironing
