Make sure you vote today! I voted and the polls were very crowded, which is good.

I took a cooking class at Roy’s Hawaiian Restaurant in Pasadena this past weekend. I LOVE Roy’s. It’s one of my favorite restaurants. I was so excited I just kept grinning before class started. We made appetizers at this class. It was my first cooking class at Roy’s, but I’ll definitely take classes there in the future.

This is an acorn squash salad with arugula and pomegranate seeds with a pomegranate dressing. It was really good. It’s vegetarian, and if you brown the squash with olive oil instead of butter it can be vegan.

Here’s a chicken curry salad with apples and mango. I usually don’t like putting fruit with meat, but it was really good. finely diced chicken, apples, and mango, with curry mayonnaise. Yum!

Scallop ceviche. I didn’t try this because I don’t like scallops or avocado.

Here’s some shrimp lumpia (egg rolls) with bean sprouts and diced veggies. They were really good. The sous chef made a sweet and spicy chili sauce to go with them. I wish I had the recipe for that.

Here’s some of Roy’s famous short ribs. We didn’t cook these, because it takes a long time to make, but the sous chef teaching the class made some plus some steamed veggies so we could eat them for lunch along with our appetizers.

I went away for the weekend because it’s my birthday, and I did some window shopping. I wandered into the Kate Spade store I found some wonderful shoes! They are a low heel, and super comfortable! It doesn’t even seem like you’re wearing heels! Then I had fun tormenting Squeaky but she didn’t seem to mind.

Because nature has a sense of humor, sausages grow on trees! This was at the Koko Crater Botanical Gardens. It is a Sausage Tree, or Kigelia Pinnata. The blurry photos are mine, the clear shots are some that I found online so you can see it properly.

Diamond Head State Monument is in a crater on Oahu. You can go to the park website for details. There’s a trail to the top of the crater that’s less than a mile long but has about a million stairs. Great views.

Here’s a view of the Diamond Head crater from outside (at the zoo, actually)

The basin of the crater, it looks like some of the areas in southern california!

on of the military installations on the rim of the crater where the trail goes to.

that’s the parking lot for the trail on the bottom left.

I just saw this and also want it for my birthday! I can have a planigale on one hand and a marmoset on the other! I think I’ll start a fashion line with cute adorable critters as fashion accessories. Which is horrible ethically but adorable so I don’t care.
