Portuguese Bean Soup is total Hawaii comfort food. Like macaroni salad, every family has its own spin. If there is any 'secret ingredient' to soup, it's time. Making it is definitely a process that needs to start on the weekend. But it will make enough for a weekday meal plus a frozen one.
Pictures from Day 1
Furikake salmon, two flavors, salad, roasted sweet potatoes and rice. Just crust salmon with furikake, cook in a bit of oil and eat over hot rice for a fast simple dinner.
Mom's Portuguese Bean Soup. My house is feeling warm and cozy and smelling very good.
Oyako Donburi. More comfort food for cold weather. Another warm bowl of goodness for dinner.
Pan-fried noodles. This is overdue as we haven't had it in quite awhile. Will use a bit of chicken, or perhaps go vegetarian altogether.
It's hockey night. Spam musubi, li-hing apples and string beans with a goma shio-sauce. Go Sharks!
Chicken Tortilla Soup. With more rain forecast, tortilla soup sounds like a good way to end the weekend.
Eat Well. Be Well.
