Living in Tulsa and Southern California Makes For An Interesting Life - Especially After All Those Grey Years In Seattle
Thanks for the pictures of Hawaii. That Taro relative -- the blue food - is really strange looking. How does it taste? Looks like blueberry ice cream!
I think I could really like it if there were no other choices. It tasted like very bland, grainy, slightly sweet potatoes. Would not be my first choice over regular potatoes.
Beryl, I've never heard of taro, never mind any of its family members. I know what you mean about 'if no other choices'.
Hi Shelley - I think Taro is what the Hawaiians pound into mush to make Poi, their national dish. And that no other choice dilemma is always a worry when traveling.
Sigh. I really need to go someplace where I can get sand between my toes.And you really need to come North and visit your daughter so you and I can meet for coffee. Darla
Hi Darla - Had a Tornado Watch last night with my husband away on business, so I'm thinking a visit to California is due in the next month or so. Just look for a red Chevy with Oklahoma plates! But seriously, I will let you know when I'm in Berkeley next. Are you a fan of Tea in the City?
That is so, so beautiful, Beryl! Such clear, gorgeous water—and the food looks heavenly. I'm so glad you had a marvelous time.
Hi Catherine - You know I think the fish in Oklahoma is really good - well, the Ginger Crusted Ahi John had at Mama's on Maui was on a whole other level. The Menu even had the name of the man who had caught it and where. Today's picture is from a meal at someplace called Jazz something and it was a locally grown burger. Fabulous! We should go out for some Barbecue, since it's better here than anywhere else. Any news on next year?
I would love to try that purple mash! Look so interesting and colourful on the plate :)
Hi Carolyn - It was so vivid on the plate - I'm glad my new camera could capture the color. They grow amazing things on Hawaii, you just need to find a place where they source from the locals. I would love to stay there for a month in a place with a kitchen and learn to cook some of it.
