Happy Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!  I hope you all spent it with that special someone.  Valentine’s Day 2015 was extra special because it was Connor’s first.  Valentines also fell on a Saturday this year which was really nice.  Connor, Ev and I were pretty busy all day.


The day started with our weekly trip to the Kakaako Farmer’s Market outside of Ward Warehouse.  It wasn’t a great day for a farmer’s market because it was raining and super windy, so we didn’t end up staying very long.  Nevertheless, we ate a brick oven pizza and a few baked goods for breakfast, sat and listened to music, and bought some Yukon gold potatoes for dinner tonight and an avocado for Connor’s food this week.

After the farmer’s market, we decided to run a few errands.  Ev is planning to make bacon on Monday (I’ll definitely be posting pictures of that later) and so we went to a few places looking to buy a new smoker and went to City Mill to buy supplies wood chips, charcoal, etc).  In the end, we didn’t end up buying a smoker, but we did get to visit a new restaurant supply store called Chef Zone located in the Mapunapuna area (more on that in another post).  By the time we finished with our errands, it was midafternoon so we decided to have a late lunch at Siam Garden Café, which is Everett’s favorite Thai restaurant.

To finish off the day, Everett made a me a home cooked stead dinner.  We originally wanted to have steak and lobster.  But due to our procrastination, there were no lobsters left at Foodland.  So, we just opted for steak and potatoes with a nice bottle of wine instead.


Hope everyone had a great Valentine’s too!
