Fish Tacos & Happy New Year!

Our vacation in Hawaii has been flying by. I cannot believe it is already New Year's Day! Happy New Year everyone!

We went to Manoli's Pizza Company Saturday night for dinner. My husband and I split a Caesar salad:

And a pizza with onions and peppers:

The salad was good but the pizza was just ok. The thing we really liked was the "Holy Manoli" for dessert:

Freshly baked cookie topped with vanilla ice cream, hot fudge, caramel sauce and Oreo crumbles.

Breakfast Sunday morning was at the breakfast buffet.

We got there late and the brunch was just about to start so we stayed for that too. Why not?

A brunch wouldn't be complete without the champagne!

We spent the day at the pool. For lunch I had realized that I hadn't had any fish yet (a shame!) so I opted for fish tacos for lunch.

They were fabulous!

That night we went over to my friend Tami's house for dinner. She had quite the spread out!

Tami also made her famous Kahlua Cake.

It's amazing.

Breakfast the next morning was from the lounge upstairs. Toasted English muffin with peanut butter and some pineapple.

We took the ferry over to Lanai for the day. We spent the day looking at this:

Lunch was another round of fish tacos.

These were also amazing. I think I could live on fish tacos.

We met some friends at Duke's for dinner. My meal started with Maui Onion Soup.

Followed by more fish tacos. I'm on a roll.

Dessert was Hula Pie!

Yesterday's breakfast was another toasted English muffin with peanut butter.

After breakfast I went to spin class with Tami. This was followed up by laying at the pool all day.

I debated on the fish tacos for lunch again but went with the tuna sandwich instead. Good choice.

Eventually it was time to get ready for dinner. We went to Longhi's for New Year's Eve dinner. We were greeted with their fabulous pizza bread.

I chose the Veal Piccata for my entree.

I ate every bite. It was fabulous!

Dessert was good too….Chocolate Soufflé that was gone in a matter of seconds.

We went back to our hotel lobby where we met Tami and her family for a drink.
