North Shore Grinds

For "fisherman fresh" seafood plate lunches and other ono food you need to go to North Shore Grinds in Palolo.  I happened to be there twice the other week at hungry time and scored parking so I got us some grinds.

The mahi mahi was so ono the first time that it got ordered again the next time I was there.  The beef stew was so meaty that Landon wondered if it's always like that.  The hamburger steak was only okay.  Probably wouldn't order it again.  Everything else was really good.


Dynamite Ahi Katsu special (white rice/mac salad) $16.00

Herb-crusted Mahi Mahi with Lemon Cream (all tossed salad) $17.95

Chicken Katsu with BBQ horseradish dip (white rice/mac salad) $16.95

Hamburger Steak with Onion Gravy (white rice/mac salad) $16.95

Beef Stew (white rice/mac salad) $17.95

Garlic Calamari with Roasted Pepper Cream (brown rice/Mac salad) $16.95

I went to visit my mom yesterday.  Wendell took this picture of Kai waiting at the front window for me to come home.  🥲

Cooling Off

 It was so hot yesterday, I thought it was a good day to give Kai his first "bath".

Foot Care Update

As you can see from this photo taken about a month ago, someone is hampering my foot care routine. 

I haven't been able to moisturize daily, but I'm still liking the results, and Wendell says that the dryness of his feet have improved 100%.

Dd's Baked Parmesan Caesar Chicken

This recipe has only five ingredients!  My kind of recipe.

baked parmesan chicken



2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 1# total), pounded flat, halved

1/3 c. favorite Caesar dressing

½-3/4 c. panko

¼ c. Parmesan cheese, grated

1 TB Italian parsley, chopped


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  

Place baking rack onto aluminum foil lined baking sheet.

On work surface, spread dressing onto chicken pieces. Into shallow dish combine panko, cheese and parsley well.  Dredge chicken pieces into mix, pressing well to adhere to chicken.

Bake until chicken is golden-brown and cooked through, about 20 to 25 minutes.

Optional to place chicken under broiler until cheese is browned, 3-4 minutes. Serves 2-3.

Kai in Slo-Mo

This is what Kai and I were doing before I somehow managed to throw his toy onto our roof.

Wendell later used our extendable mango picker to get it for us.

Me and Kai were having a grand ole time playing with his new toy this morning.  He doing his retrieving and me trying to film in slow motion.  

Until I accidentally threw the toy onto our roof.   🛑 😂

Stay tuned.  I hope.

Busted out the Big Boy dish stand this morning.  Right away Kai started chewing on one of the corners.  🤪

Kai met with a few of his siblings this past Saturday.  We had a great time. 

That's Kai being scratched and loving it.
