I have run out of things to share on the blog. I am scratching my head as to what direction I should go - aha - why not go to my favorite thing to do what I am bored - food. I want to share what I made the other night.
You first question is - what is it? This is spam musubi. A piece of spam fried and marinate in teriyaki sauce. Than the spam is put between the rice and wrapped in seaweed. The people in Hawaii loves this food. They eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner if they can. This is a great food to take for a picnic.
The occasion for this huge plate was we were going to a church luncheon and this dish was gone in 30 seconds. I had to get one before we left for church. If you have been to Hawaii, you know how it taste.
Yupe!! The girls did not want to dress up and go "trick or Treatin". They told in the beginning all they want to do is pass out the candy. And this is what they said to me "beside Mom, Halloween is on a school night and that's not fun". I told them i have no problem with this arrangement. But they want to to decorate the front of the house. So this is their homemade decoration - pumpkin from Sprouts and the ghost are kleenex tissue. The only purchase is the little spiders from Target. I was quite happy because I didn't have spend any money on their costumes. Enjoy.
The other day, hubby was going over what to buy for the girls for their Christmas present. He was saying the girls have been playing and using their Ipod touch (1st generation) for a couple a years now and with all new IOS that comes out, the 1st generation cannot use some of the apps or cannot update new apps. So I gave him the "get to chance line" and he told me his Mom gave him money to buy the girls the newest Ipod touch (not out yet) for Christmas. I told him what about me? He said I can go ahead and get the new IPhone 5. Yes, yes. But I am waiting for all the bugs are fixed before I update to the new iPhone 5.
This is the guy who still uses the flip phone and won't even text. He will accept text but don't expect to get any reply from him. He was against me getting a smartphone because now we have to pay the addition data line. Well to make the long story short, he uses my IPhone whenever we are out doing errands. He made sure I had the phone around when we were buying my car because he was expecting another car dealer to give us a better deal. I guess now he knows we need a smartphone in the family.
Okay, every 4 years I get this and I procrastinate and then wait for the last second before mailing it. By that time I am absolutely confused to the max on what the proposition i voted for and who the candidate I voted for. So this year I am doing it early - this way I won't get sway by all the tv ads, newspaper ads, and people ads. I mail this "baby" off on Saturday and please leave me alone until the next years.
the plumeria bush right next to our front door has been blooming like mad. the reason is we had really mild Winter and the whole month of August and September, we have been getting really hot and humid weather. I am enjoying the bloom. The poor plant doesn't know when to stop because of this crazy weather we are having. Enjoy
Yes, I am a convert!! My new car is the Prius V and my old car is in the background - 4runner. My Prius V is a station wagon and gets great mileage. I can actually can fill up once a month. Whereas my old car need to get fill up once every two weeks.
