Coaster Calendars with Anuhea...."Want Some Shaved Ice?"

Anuhea by Sister Stamps brings back memories of when my hubby (then boyfriend) went to the North Shore on Oahu and enjoyed the best Shaved Ice from Matsumoto's.  He even had a Matsumoto tee-shirt.  LOL.   OK, if you're from Oahu, we call it Shaved Ice.  Here on the Big Island, they call it Ice Shave.   But no matter what you call it, it is YUMMY!!!  I love mine with vanilla ice cream and azuki beans.   Ummmmmm.  Licking my chops.

So here's Anuhea enjoying her refreshing Shaved Ice with strawberry, banana, and vanilla syrup on a nice sunny dya.



I got carried away with this calendar and made 10 of them.....



Are you ready for a lot of pix?   The firm I work for is so awesome.  They treat us to luncheon every quarter.  This past week, we went to The Pond's.  Here's a  pix I took of the koi fishes from my seat next to the window.   They even gave each of us a little cup of koi food to feed them.


I ordered one of the specials of the day which was the Captain's Boat (Breaded shrimp, scallops, and fresh ahi with fries.)   No, that's not newspaper they put the food on....LOL, just looks like it.  :-)


One of my co-workers order this yummy sandwich and fries.


OK, I didn't want to reach over and take a pix of everyone's food.   Here's a shot of another co-workers Mango Ice Cream.  She said it was really good.  My co-worker and I shared the Creme Brulee but rats, I forgot to take a pix of that.   It was GOOOOOD!


THEN that evening, we had a family dinner at The Coconut Grill.  For starters, here's my salad.   Oh, I didn't know it was only one trip to the Salad Bar until after I made my plate.  Dang, should've piled it on some more.  LOL.


Here's the Sauteed Mushrooms......deeeelicious.


And Crab Cakes.  As Rachel Ray would say, "YummmmO".


I ordered the Teriyaki Chicken.  Yah, looks burnt.  Maybe just a little over done but my new camera seems to make things look darker than things really are.  This is probably my favorite item on the menu.


For dessert, I think this was called something like Coconut Creme Brulee with Haupia Ice Cream.


Here's my hubby's dessert, the Lava Cake.   Rich and yummy.


His cousin's dessert.  Sorry, can't remember the name of this scrumptious dessert but woo-hoo she said it was GOOD and will exercise the next day.  I asked her to exercise for me too.  Ha-ha-ha.

Thanks for stopping by and HAVE A SCRAP HAPPY DAY!

These calendars are really attractive....maybe I love them because of the shaved ice.(I always say ice shave because my parents were Hilo folks...my husband laughs every time.) Enjoyed your mouth watering food photos. You always give me a desire to go to where you ate....great descriptions!

Wow! I love the pictures of all the food that you posted. My mouth is watering and my stomach is growling from seeing all of them. Yes, it's time for dinner. :)

All your calendars are awesome. This one is super fun with the little girl enjoying her shaved ice. I miss the shaved ice in HI.

I hope that you are enjoying yourself as you continue to prep for Christmas. :)
