While I don’t have any more posts regarding my recent Maui trip, I have been really inspired since I came home. I brought this hibiscus tea home and made Hawaiian Arnold Palmers with that and homemade pineapple lemonade (made with Maui pineapple of course). I didn’t take any pictures of it because I still have not learned how to make drinks look attractive. Someday. I did manage to take some pictures of other Hawaiian inspired goodies.
Green Salad with Avocado & Creamy Papaya Dressing
Coconut-Macadamia Tofu Cutlets
Garlic Seasoned Taro Wedges
I will have some kind of recipe soon. I am testing out lilikoi bars and still working on that elusive Hawaiian bread.
I find it hard to get inspired tropically when I’m surrounded by dark, cold and out of season fruit (boo Canadian winters), but do I ever want to make that tofu now. I can even use the Hawaiian macadamia nuts I’ve been hoarding in the freezer 🙂
I totally understand! Living in southern California we barely have winter. We’re all freezing to death when temps dip below 60°F. But we pay for it in summer when we melt!
