Our Holiday in Maui

We were lucky enough to enjoy fourteen glorious days in Maui. We went for our 14th wedding anniversary- one day for every year we've been married. I took some pics of our meals and can't wait to get back to cooking in the Beecave Kitchen to whip up some Polynesian style dinners that remind me of paradise.

 The hubs ADORES the CoCoNut Porter from the Maui Brewing Company which was just a five minute drive from our condo at Honua Kai, so we went there tons to fill up his growlers and enjoy their terrific salads from a local farm and amazing sandwiches, pizzas and coconut porter chili. We have a recipe for our pulled pork sliders HERE made with CoCoNut Porter. Also had fun at the Hula Grill, Dukes and Roy's for our anniversary dinner. Hands down the best breakfast place is at the Pioneer Inn right on the harbor in Lahaina. Terrific service from our waitress Corey and the guava mimosas were the perfect start to the day alongside their eggs Benedict.  We probably ate breakfast here almost every other day since  price and service was better than that of Longhi's and Dukes. Yes, we went touristy and our condo came stocked with Bosch appliances, but I didn't cook too much in it this year.  Scroll to the bottom to see us then and now. We've had quite an adventure in our marriage for sure!!!

 Honolua Bay- gorgeous!!

Things got off to a good start in the first class cabin with fully reclining seats that made the eight hour flight much more tolerable.

Fried Mac n Cheese Balls at the MBC

Vegetarian Eggs Benedict at Pioneer Inn. Great people watching especially when the enormous fanny pack wearing tourists unload from the cruise ships to waddle about Lahaina.

Ahi Tuna eggs Benedict with wasabi hollandaise at Duke's- who knew ahi and eggs would be such a nice marriage of flavors?

Seafood Trio at Roy's- Ono, Ahi and Swordfish. I took food shots with my iphone, so they aren't that great and I saw a fellow blogger bust out her enormous camera and she looked pretty silly. So discretion is best at times.

More fun at MBC- I swear I ordered salads!!
