BONUS: went to a luau and sat at the table next to Daniel Dae Kim, aka Jin from "LOST"
DOWNSIDE: he was a jerk...and his wife an even bigger jerk.
Whats that? Don't take your photo?!

Carlos and Emily invited some friends to their house for a "Wine and Cheese Tasting." I was a bit skeptical at first, because I had never attended such an event. Also, I was worried because Carlos told me it wasn't dinner, but just little appetizers and stuff. Rach and I were pretty hungry going over there, and I thought we were definitely going to be forced to hit the Wendy's late night afterwards.
Boy was I wrong. They had all these delicious meats, cheeses, and appetizers. We did not leave hungry. I really liked the format of just eating a bunch of little things instead of one big meal. I was scared of the melon wrapped with some kind of thinly sliced smoked meat, but it was pretty tasty. The bruschetta was delectable, and I ate about a pound of fresh mozzarella.
I have no idea what kind of wine we had, but I drank it and it was good. You can tell by looking at the pictures who the real wine afficionados are because some of us held the wine glass by the stem and some of us held it like a beer glass. Amateurs.
For dessert Midori brought Bearded Papa's cream puffs, which are my absolute favorite. Addam said they were awesome, and he would know because he, "F'n loves pastries!"

OK. First, I have to say please don't send any kind of hate mail saying, "Get out of town! Her name cannot be Kate Falcon! There is no way you know someone with a badass last name like FALCON!" Believe it people. I've seen her drivers license.

Did you watch this season? The guy who won, Aaron McCargo Jr., was from CAMDEN, NJ!
We loved this guy, and the 1st episode of his show, Big Daddy's House came out last week. Best part, he actually cooks with ingredients whose names you would recognize & prolly have on hand.
We tried his spin on chicken fingers with salad. Instead of coating the chicken with bread crumbs, you use chips...I believe he used spicy nacho chips, we had some sour cream & cheddar chips on hand, so we went with that. It was very tasty!

This was a gift from a patient. It's a "Haku" from Kauai, aka a Hawaiian flower head lei. I wore it all day at work...I felt like a cross between a princess & a hippy =)
This pic doesn't do it justice. The colors are gorgeous, the flowers smell spectacular, & they look so perfect everyone thought they were fake. I felt very honored to be given one!

We always put our comforter on this basket that we keep in the corner of our room, because it is always too hot to use it. Today the comforter happened to form a little cave that Zoey took a nap in.
As soon as I took Zoey's picure (with my iPhone), Chloe jumped into the same little cat cave for her photo op.
Weird. Them for posing in the cat cave. Us for taking the pictures and posting them on the Internet.

I finally convinced Rach to let me get an iPhone. These are some of the pics I took today when we went to Roy's. The restaurant is situated on a golf course with some really good views.
This is the view of the 18th hole from the bar.
The view from behind my beer glass.
The food was so good that we forgot to get a pic of my honey mustard beef short rib. This is Rach's macadamia crusted swordfish.
The delicious chocolate souffle with ice cream.
