Hooray! I finally have some pictures and recipes to share!
To start with... we kind of ran out of money in Hawaii. Like, transferring money off of credit cards ran out of money. And we did not go to a luau (although I hear that they can be really hit or miss, so prolly best NOT to spend the $100/person to either not get food or get food poisoning...) but I had this flyer that boasted what I thought would be a pretty awesome menu:
Sauteed Mahi Mahi with Lemon Macadamia Nut Butter
Sweet Bread Rolls
Molokai Sweet Potatoes
Island Style Fried Rice
Maui Grown Lettuce Bar
Potato Mac Salad (I love this for some reason, despite not liking macaroni salad for the most part)
Green Papaya Salad
Lomi Lomi Salmon
Maui Gold Pineapple
Cucumber Namasu Salad
So yeah. We did not go there.. but- I managed to pull together a feast of a dinner and lunch the next day with only $40. Bite me, overpriced luaus!
Here's what I did:
Bought a pound of macadamia nuts. Ground them up in a blender. Then added some sweet bread:
For a bit of bread-y-ness, of course. Then, I dredged some ahi steaks in it, and put it in a pan. I drizzled it with lemon juice, and added a few bits of pineapple and some juice from the core of it.
