As mentioned in my last post, here's a pix of one of the favors I made for my co-worker's birthday. Rats, I made 7 of these in an assortment of colors; blue, teal, purple, and hot pink and forgot to take a pix of all of them together. It wasn't until last night when I attempted to post this that I realized it. Luckily, one of my co-workers displays all of the favors I've made to-date on desk shelf so I took a pix of hers this morning.
Since some of my office buddies are trying to eat healthy, I decided to fill a little plastic bag with Trail Mix. I felt it needed some color, so I added some M & M Pretzel candy. Well, that's not very healthy but let's just say, it's now a "balanced" snack. LOL.
Well, our birthday girl said she would like some Maple Bacon Donuts rather than a cake so I got these from Hilo Bake Co. Is your mouth watering? I think our birthday girl could grind this entire box and not put on an ounce.
I really feel fortunate to work for a fantastic firm. They treat us to quarterly luncheons and last week we dined at Hilo Bay Cafe (formerly Nihon Restaurant). OMGosh, they renovated the restaurant so beautifully and what a great atmosphere with a spectacular view of Hilo Bay.
One of my co-workers ordered the Lime Ade and just about all of us "had to" try it too. Ummmm, deeeelish!!! Oh, it's a non-alcoholic drink.....thought I'd better mention that. :-)
I ordered the Chicken Curry Pot Pie. Awesome!!! The crust is light and flaky. Ummmm. I could go for another one right now.
One of my co-worker's ordered the Chirazushi.....
For dessert, I ordered Tiramusu. I only had it once before many years ago at another restaurant. I remembered it was soooooo sweet, like eating straight sugar so I was quite hesitant in ordering it again. I asked the waitress if theirs was really sweet and she said it's not and they serve theirs in a glass cup. OK, that sounded good. No regrets, it was GREAT.
Thanks for stopping by and HAVE A SCRAP HAPPY DAY.
