In addition to tubing, another thing you must do in Kauai is go to Uncle’s Shave Ice and get, well, shave ice! Cool and refreshing shave ice is something that is a must-do when you’re in Hawaii (regardless of which island you visit!) and Uncle’s definitely offered up some tasty flavors. Okay, yes, it looks … Continue reading Uncle’s!
The most fun we had (in my humble opinion) on any excursion during our entire trip was visiting the Lihue Plantation, an old sugar plantation on Kauai. I know you’re thinking: what is so fun about visiting an old sugar plantation unless it is now a rum factory? Alas no rum–what we did was float … Continue reading A Sugary Float
The last Hawaiian island that we visited was Kauai. It is the northernmost island in the archipelago, as well as the oldest–some sites say 5.8 million, other say over 6 million years old, I say potato, potahto! We stayed there the longest of all three islands–and for good reason, there was a lot to see … Continue reading The Garden Isle
I don’t know about you, but it has been one of those weeks and I am so very glad the weekend is here! I’m looking forward to doing a whole lotta nothing and adding in a few trips down to the pool. Naturally at 4 minutes to midnight, I remembered that I didn’t actually schedule … Continue reading A Hawaiian T.G.I.F.

As such, I’ve decided that rather than share pictures of me with bad 80s hair and glasses that legitimately covered half my face, I could easily share glasses … Continue reading A Virgin Thirsty Thursday

Today I’m finding myself short on words (aka what I really want to work on are posts for other days, like Thirsty Thursday or Sunday Comics), so … Continue reading Day 32
If you are thinking I’m going to talk about eggs or maybe even coffee, you would be wrong. Today I’m going to talk about pancakes. For the record, I don’t think I’ve ever met a pancake that I didn’t like. But, OMG, Hawaiian pancakes are just absofuckinglutely amazing. You might say that it’s just the … Continue reading Eggs ‘N Lava Java
I wasn’t actually planning on Margarita Monday to be a regular thing, but I figured what the heck–who doesn’t like margaritas?!?!? Btw, if you’d like a picture of your tasty margarita to appear here for Margarita Mondays, please tweet it to me @epicurioustexan or send me a message on FB! I know, I know…it’s been … Continue reading Margarita Monday: Hawaiian Style!
Ugh. Rain. I don’t mean I hate rain–I love rain! It’s just that I love it even more when I can stay at home and watch old movies while lounging on the couch with the pupcicle. But not when I have to be out in it schlepping things for work and especially not when it … Continue reading Rainy Days
