aloha friday


How was your week my lovely ladies? Spring has sprung and this weekend I’m going on a food foraging hike in Makiki Heights. I’ve been trying to find something like this for a while so I’m excited to see what I will find.

~I just read Michael J. Fox’s interview in the New York Times Magazine and one of the things he said was “…acceptance doesn’t mean resignation. It means understanding and dealing straightforwardly”. Acceptance is an important word when you have a chronic illness. I have been working on acceptance for some time but now realize it’s something we must do over and over again as our situation changes. It’s a process not a one time event.

~I enjoyed making these collard wontons from two red bowls. I used leftover broccoli leaves from my garden and they turned out delicious. If you have wanted to make dumplings, this is a good one to start with because the folding of the wrappers were pretty easy.

~ Check out the Instagram account Cheese By Numbers for the most gorgeous cheese plates and instructions on how to make them.

~ What I’m watching - Free Solo is a super interesting documentary about Alex Honnold’s attempt to climb El Capitan in Yosemite National Park.

~ What I’m reading - The Places That Scare You by Pema Chodron

Hope you have a wonderful weekend. xo Kai
