Aloha, the Hawaiian’s sure have a beautiful language, don’t they? There’s not a whole lot that isn’t beautiful about Hawaii, and recently we were blessed to vacation there.
Grain Free Cacao Granola Bars, that’s a mouth full isn’t it? They were a hit when I made these for our family that we just visited while in Hawaii. I was having trouble not eating them all in one sitting, but my sister in love, had some better self-control and brought them out for a few evenings in a row after dinner and we all shared them while enjoying time with one another.
Recently my husband and I were fortunate enough to win two free airline tickets to Hawaii. Well they were free airline tickets, we chose the Hawaii part. We are also fortunate to have relatives that live in Hawaii. a win win combination. Besides being able to stay with family it also gave this trip all that much more meaning and memories seeing and spending time with those we haven’t spent that much time with in many years.
I love to cook and bake so it was only natural for me to spend a little time in the kitchen while we were there. Not too much time mind you as we had things to do like snorkeling, and beach walks, and swimming, but more about that later.
While I plan to tell you all about our trip to Hawaii in another blog post I can’t help but share some of the highlights that we had while we were there. I mentioned earlier we shared these Grain Free Cacao Granola Bars around the table after we had dinner out on the lanai(patio). One night I made my One pot pasta, it’s so easy it was a great vacation meal. The highlight was almost every night after dinner we would just sit around with the extended family and visit, sharing remembrances of different memories we had, or stories that we all enjoyed. We did ton’s of laughing and made more memories, it was awesome. Take time to hold your family close and make time to visit those that don’t live nearby, it’s well worth it.
