I had big plans to share a little pineapple tutorial with you. Guess what...
I dropped the ball and was busy with activity a, b, and c. The pineapple post will just have to be saved for the future.
I did have a few thought of my own to share:
Why is it that anything with pineapple on it is labeled at "Hawaiian?" I'm talking burgers, pizza, and haystacks. I had never even heard of a Hawaiian Haystack until I lived in San Diego when I was in my 20's. They are pretty good, but no pineapple on mine please, or coconut for that matter.
Spam is a pretty popular "meat" in Hawaii. It's just really salty and kind of like a hot dog. Not gross and really good fried up for breakfast with some sticky rice and eggs. Lower your standards and try it some time.
Not everyone from Hawaii is Hawaiian, or speaks pigeon. We are a part of the United States and use U.S. currency. I have really had people ask me about this stuff.
Oh, and it's free to swim in the rec centers there. I just about died when I had to pay to swim in a pool.
There are so many great things about Hawaii that I miss. I'm okay with out the humidity and bugs. But, I really miss the ocean and warmth of the people.
Happy Aloha Friday. Hope you don't have to work till Monday.
