Wedding Anniversary in Maui

Aloha Omakase!
We celebrated 10 years of marriage with an incredible dinner at Morimoto in Maui’s Wailea.

It was thrilling to place our entree options in the hands of the chef.

So happy with the oyster foie gras.
Morimoto offered an epic eating adventure, showcasing fresh seafood, delicate flavors and elegant techniques.
Also, the sake pairing knocked our socks off.

Sweaty Mess, Eating Lean

T-Minus 2 hours before my next bootcamp workout.

This is the second week of my 6-week fat loss and fitness program with O2 BodyFit. It kicks my butt with high-intensity cardio & strength routines. The trainers push us without breaking us down.

I’m sweaty mess at the end. My muscles and limbs scream from exhaustion.

So far, I love it!

O2 BodyFit Meal Plan - Week 1
I’m also on a new meal plan: more lean meats and more (much more) vegetables.

Here’s what I made for the first week (I tweaked the recipes to cut down on oils and eliminate dairy items):

  • Broiled salmon with a peppercorn-Lime Rub and an Asian slaw with a ginger peanut dressing (no honey)
  • Pan-seared tilapia (no butter) with broccoli slaw and spinach salad
  • Lemon-Thyme chicken with sauteed vegetables (no cheese)
  • Chicken omelette, with kale and cherry tomatoes
  • Ground turkey with Rogan Josh sauce (Saffron Road simmer sauce) over cauliflower rice and spinach salad.

I had plenty of leftovers.

Mustard Salmon

My hubby’s request for dinner: fish and rice. I think we needed something light. We spent the last couple of nights dining out.

I love the “French in a Flash” column on Serious Eats. Kerry Saretsky has great ideas for simple, elegant dishes.

So – I decided to try out her mustard salmon and asparagus recipe.

Fish Night

We had a spontaneous Sunday dinner at my Cal buddy’s house in San Francisco’s Mission.

Susan’s home is ground zero for grand holiday feasts, bacon fans, Super Bowl parties and wet cell phones. Her kitchen is our culinary laboratory for new recipes and techniques. I’m dreaming about the day when her hubby Tom will show me how to make pierogies.

Fish Night
Last Sunday, Susan and Tom bought fresh Saba fillets. We picked up mashed potatoes and other side dishes from Safeway. Our Oakland buddy Scott sautéed asparagus.
