TROPICAL FOOD CHRONICLES – DAY FOUR
Wednesday was a pretty simple day as far as activity goes. Most of the day was spent at the beach in the sun and surf and just lazing around the condo. For breakfast we had easy –over eggs on English Muffins with crispy bacon and coffee along with Banana Bread and Apple Bananas.
For lunch we paid another visit to the Kukui`ula Village Shopping Center and had lunch at Dude Dogs. To influence our lunch decision, we had a coupon that allowed us to order a hot dog, drink and chips for $5.00 each. The Dogs are all-beef hot dogs and the toppings are very inventive. The toppings that are available at Dude Dogs are:
Mustard, Tomato, Relish & Onions
Mustard, Coleslaw & Onions
Mustard, Onion, Cheddar & Bacon
Chipotle Mustard, Nacho Cheese & Jalapenos
Maui Onions, Mustard, Cream Cheese & Pineapple Salsa
Mustard, Chili, Onions, Pepper Jack Cheese & Jalapenos
Deli Mustard, Dill Pickles & Cheddar
Thousand Island, Swiss Cheese & Sauerkraut
Passion Fruit Wasabi Mustard, Cream Cheese & Onions
Mayonnaise, Mustard & Crushed Chips
Dijon Mustard, Bleu Cheese, Tomato & Bacon
Mustard, Chili & Coleslaw
Wasabi Mustard, Swiss Cheese & Kraut
Ev chose the Mustard, Coleslaw & Onions while went for the Maui Onion, Mustard & Pineapple Salsa. I had them leave out the Cream Cheese as that didn’t really sit very well with me for a hotdog. In hindsight I probably should have tried it but didn’t. I did enjoy the Pineapple Salsa though and would have it again and even duplicate it at home.

While we were eating lunch the mall was being set up for another Farmer’s Market. This one was billed as a gourmet market featuring organic vegetables, cooked dishes and baked products. In the center of the mall near Merriman’s Restaurant, a demo booth was set up with chairs for the audience. In addition, there was a beer garden where you could buy tickets and sample various beers. This market was due to open at 3 o’clock so we returned to our condo to rest for a couple of hours and then went back to the mall for the Farmers Market. We browsed through the market and sampled some Korean food, but didn’t really find anything to purchase although the products were beautiful and interesting.
For dinner, Ev wanted Pizza so we went back to Koloa and had dinner at a restaurant called Pizzette. It was Happy Hour again and Pizza was $1.99 slice for an ample sized piece so Ev ordered 2 slices of Pepperoni Pizza and I ordered the BBQ Rib Appetizer which was served with a Mango BBQ Sauce. After dinner we went back to the ‘Big Save’ Market and purchased some more items including ground sirloin and Buns for dinner the next night, ice cream sandwiches for dessert and Pepsi for me.
Back at the condo we enjoyed the evening breezes on the balcony and then watched some TV while I knitted. (To see the view from our balcony, go to Tropical Food Chronicles, Day One. Before going to bed, we prepared our items for our trip to Kokee to do some more bird watching. So watch for more of our trip, coming tomorrow.
