1 year ago...

...my life completely changed when I got married on July 7, 2007. A couple days after I went to the beautiful island of Maui for my honeymoon. With my anniversary quickly approaching and me still not knowing what to do that day that isn't completely cheesy and cliche, I would rather just relive my honeymoon because Michigan is, well, Michigan. My posts are supposed to be about food and decoration ideas because it looks like I am the most domestic one of the group, so in honor of my first wedding annivesary, I am going to take you back to Hawaii with me by giving you some of their dessert ideas.

Ok so this is for the ultimate island sundae:
Take a couple scoops of pineapple-coconut ice cream (not Hagaan Dazz because one of the ingredients is rum even though all of their ice creams are kosher, it doesn't necesarrily mean that it's halal) and top it off with crushed shortbread cookies (since Hawaii is actually famous for their shortbread), macadamia nuts, pineapple chunks, drizzle caramel syrup and chocolate syrup, and of course whipped cream!

Hawaii is also home of shaved ice, which is our main-landers equivalent of a snow cone, so that might be easier to get.

Or if you are in the mood for pancakes..... you can make pineapple-macademia nut pancakes topped with coconut strup. Just crush up some macademia nuts and mx it into your normal pancake batter and prepare as through the directions on the box, top with pineapple chunks, and if you can find, coconut syrup. At some of their restaraunts, I think they used the same syrup that they would add into drinks and it was still really good, so that might also be easier to find.

I couldn't possibly recreate any of the delicious meals that I ate their for dinner, but everything basically had a sweet twist to it by commonly using pineapples and teriaki sauces. I remember having teriaki beef on my last night there and it was so good that I have been looking for it everywhere, so if anyone ever finds a good authentic Hawaiian restaraunt pleeeeeaaase let me know!!!!

Oh, and make sure you drink a lot of kona coffee :)

If any one has any first wedding anniversary ideas please let me know because.... I really don't know what to do that isn't just about eating at some restaraunt and my one year old wedding cake...

I still crave those chocolate mousse fruit things you made at Ambers grad. mmm mm delicioussss.

For wedding anniversary, why not get away for a day? Like HOLLAND, MICHIGAN?...or they have this cruise/tour thing you can take on the Detroit river! Try that! Gay? Maybe. But worth a shot?

I'll probably have better ideas when I'm married :\

Miss you!
