Newlywed, Newly Veg: Hawaiian Style

January 19, 2011

I think we can all agree that adding “Hawaiian Style” to something is always a good idea.

Case in point:

Ohhhh, to be at the Hawaiian Hideaway right now, listening to the sweet serenades of Kelly’s grandfather as he strums his ukulele. 

Not going to happen.

But—we can still EAT like we’re in Hawaii:

Last night, after returning home from a blustery day up at campus, I whipped up this quick stir-fry with pineapple, edamame, and red bell pepper, served over whole wheat couscous.  If only Brian Handsome Hanson were there to enjoy it with us.   

Don’t worry…dinner may be over, but we’re still in the Hawaiian spirit over here:

Well, we’re about to go return the haunted tiki statue that Ryan stole from an archeological dig site the other day.

Wait.  Now I’m confusing my Hawaiian specials.

Aloha!

    That stir fry sounds SO good. I don’t like pineapple in sweets but definitely in savory foods covered in soy sauce. Mmm.

    I never watched Saved By The Bell, but who doesn’t remember the Brady Bunch episodes when they go to Hawaii and stumble upon ancient caves.

    Ha! I watch Saved By the Bell every morning and the Hawaiian special was recently on. It’s sad that I can’t get enough of it.

    This is really funny because I just saw Jessie from Saved by the Bell the other day and that girl has NOT aged! She looks amazing.

      Ha! Man, I want to have celebrity sightings in my day-to-day life!!

    It’s been a while since I’ve seen that episode, but I still remember Brian Handsome. Too funny. You should check him out on IMDB. He has aged well. 🙂

    The food looks delicious (as always). I hope all is well. We miss you guys.

      Ha, I DID check him out on IMDB after I wrote the post! Great minds think alike. He’s actually made quite the little career for himself!

      We miss y’all too!! We’re coming down in February for AWP– we’ll talk trip details soon!

    Saved by the Bell Hawaii was my fave! Your stir fry looks amazing!

    I always forget about how good pineapple is in a stirfry. It’s so much better served warm!

  19. January 20, 2011 2:35 am

    I will go to Hawaii with you anytime 🙂

  20. January 20, 2011 2:38 am

    OMG I love both the Saved by the Bell and Brady Bunch references! Awesome 🙂

    I love stir fry with pineapple, it’s been long overdue so I may have to whip that up soon.

    What kind of dog do you have? He or she is so cute!!

    • January 20, 2011 2:50 pm

      Aw, thank you! She’s an Australian Cattledog!

    I had the best tofu of my life at a fish restaurant in Hawaii.

  22. January 20, 2011 3:31 am

    GAAH !! get rid of that tiki NOW, before you wake up with a huge spider on you !!

  23. January 20, 2011 5:50 am

    LOL the first picture made me laugh. I watched that special too many times to admit.

  24. January 20, 2011 11:47 am

    I love edamame — it would go so well with pineapple in stirfry, too. Yum!
