My Saturday

PhotoGrid_1359343867572

I went to the KCC Farmer’s Market on Saturday morning but without any cash whatsoever. Why I did that? I have no idea.

I guess I just assumed that there would be an ATM there but I was greatly mistaken. And the only ATM on campus is in the cafeteria that was closed because it was the weekend. Some stands took cards but there was only one thing I wanted…Strawberry Mochi and besides ignoring me for 5 minutes he said he didn’t take cards. DARN IT!

I left dismayed and hungry so I decided to go get a drink and some breakfast at The Tea Farm near campus. I got my usually Matcha Green Tea Lemonade, which is DELICIOUS by the way, and a blueberry bagel with cream cheese. Yum!

And then I picked up a friend and we went to go see Lincoln. We both got lost along the way but we made it eventually. And like I said in the earlier post, the movie was SPECTACULAR! Go see it everybody!

And I finished my Basic Instinct paper so I was pretty happy about that as well. Got most of my homework and reading done so all in all a pretty good Saturday.

What did you guys do?

Nothing like some Mexican Corn and Peanut Butter Crunch cookies…

My mother sent me a picture of my baby Wolfgang yesterday.

Isn’t he so precious? I just LOVE my big baby.

So yesterday Olivo went to school with me to check out the campus while I had my one class for the day.

I actually enjoyed my Science Fiction class yesterday. We got to discuss King Solomon’s Mines by H. Rider Haggard and I totally got to rip this girl’s ideas TO SHREADS! So I was pretty happy.

What? She said something stupid without thinking. She gets what she deserves.

After that Olivo and I went to The Tea Farm near campus. I really love the tea there so I had to take her since she’s a tea fanatic.

I had the Green Tea Lemonade, like I always do, and it was DELICIOUS!

If you have time you should check the place out. It has a simple yet pleasing interior design, a shelf full of books for customers to read from and exchange with if they like, food options and of course, delicious tea! If you’re in Honolulu, you MUST check it out!

I’m pretty sure I’ll write a complete Yelp review soon. I feel like I’m about to pass out right now so I’ll put it off till tomorrow.

And for those of you who are curious, here is my Yelp link:

serialprincess.yelp.com

I have reviews for places in Honolulu, Los Angeles, San Francisco as well as some that are scattered here and there within the continental US!

After that we took a trip to the post office and I mailed a box of cookies to my friend Kana, a Christmas gift that I had to exchange for a nephew and some post cards for friends. I love the post office but I hate it. Sending mail just costs an arm and a leg. It always makes me cringe and die a little bit on the inside…

Decided to make Mexican food so I made Chicken Quesadillas and some Mexican corn on the cob! I forgot to buy the lime so it wasn’t as AMAZING as it could have been but I was pretty happy with how it turned out. First time trying to make it and I’m glad it worked out…for the most part. I’ll remember to buy limes next time though.

I had to use Parmesan instead of Cotija cheese because I doubt I could get any of that in Hawaii.

Here is the recipe I used if anyone is curious.

Ingredients:

3 tablespoons mayonnaise (fat free is fine)
2 teaspoons fresh lime juice (optional)
2 tablespoons finely grated parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon salt
4 ears corn, shucked

Directions:

1. Prepare grill.

2. Combine mayo and juice (if using) in a small bowl.

3.Combine cheese and seasonings in another small bowl.

4. Place corn on grill rack that has been sprayed with cooking spray.

5. Grill corn 12 minutes or until tender, turning frequently.

6. Remove from grill and brush with mayo mixture, and sprinkle with cheese mixture.

7. Serve immediately.
