But enough non-food-related soap-boxin'. What will I be doing in this land of Aloha besides hanging out with the folks and visiting extended family? That's kind of it. I have about a week to fit in all the visiting, get some face time with family friends and hopefully squeeze in some quiet down time for myself. But I will of course share any tasty visuals I find. Before I left, I made sure to get my appetite primed for The Good Stuff, making myself a heaping plate or two of Locomoco over Spam Fried Rice, and looking through pictures of the goodies I brought home on my last trip, as a reminder for what I need to look out for this time.
All I can say is, the USPS if-it-fits-it-ships boxes are a godsend. That is the best vacation tip I can give, if you're traveling around the US. I buy up whatever I can find in the farmers markets (don't worry, nothing fresh, just coffee or snacks) or Sale Day at Long's, shove it all into the USPS boxes and ship it home, to save on TSA/baggage check and the 3 ounces of pure hell that is dealing with air travel. Considering most airlines charge $25 per bag you check in, and I have to island-hop using multiple flights, I can send one or two boxes of souvenir-omiyage goodness home for $20 or less, and they're usually home before I am.
Anyways, just wanted to give the head's up that Wasabi's Over and Out on Vacation until the second week of March, but stay tuned on Twitter, and I'll see you all soon! Mahaloz!
