Need to use 600g/21 oz. of Valbreso Feta before it expires 08/17/2014

For various reasons, I have been unable to use this as quickly as I had hoped. Any recipe suggestions beside a great big Greek salad?

Whale Recipes/Applications - not a joke

I have tasted whale, and it is as you describe it, which is why I support this idea. Treat it like beef stew, and cover up the fishiness with Thai or Indian spices etc.

Fried Zucchini Blossoms

In Sorrento, filled with herb-infused soft cheese, crusted, and deep-fried, they tasted pretty darned good.

Any Chuck Steak recipes that are not for the grill?

Would canned/jarred pasta sauce work? What volume of sauce ( and water? ) per pound of meat?

Because you regularly visit, please check it out (if you love Mexican) and report.

"...modern Mexican cuisine concept Buho Cocina y Cantina."

"...on the fifth-floor rooftop deck at Waikiki Shopping Plaza." Described in a SA article Wednesday, I wanted to reach for my (non-existent) gun, but I defer to the collective wisdom, if anyone has been. Information? Knowledge?

Good food in Kapolei?

The Ewa Safeway is better than the Kapolei branch. At the former, for example, I found two types of marzipan, both soft and fresh. The diversity of Asian products at Don Quijote is really impressive. Try the smoked tuna at WF if you haven't discovered it already. However, the supposedly NY-style pastrami, available only at the Hawaii Kai Costco, is a pale imitation of the real thing. Searching for "open markets" and Oahu will produce the complete list from county government. KCC is the biggest and best, but you've got to get up early Saturday morning to be there when it opens before parking disappears. I like the Wed. A. M. market in Mililani, but I haven't been to many.
Buy local when it is available, of course.

Good food in Kapolei?

It is late in the day, so this will be the first part of an answer.
WHAT I BUY AT COSTCO (BESIDE GAS)
N. B. This is because the items are good-value-for-the-money (list not necessarily all-inclusive):
prime beef
lamb
fresh tuna steaks and other fish sometimes
mizoyaki butterfish
some wines, beers, liquors
cereal
some coffee
some fruits
some vegetables
almond milk
cream
breads esp. everything bagels
pumpkin pie (Thanksgiving and Christmas only)
cheeses e. g. an English farmhouse cheddar, Manchego, Rembrandt Gouda, and, yes, Jarlsberg
lox
cold cuts e. g. turkey breast, Italian salami
rotisserie chicken (rarely, but naturally)
nuts
candy, occasionally (particularly dark chocolate-covered macadamias in big cans around Christmas)
Take some time to look around. It is easy to spend significant amounts of money there.

P. S. I think you would enjoy the Waipahu Festival Marketplace (which I understand is expanding) particularly for local fruit and veg. and fish. And it is close to Don Quijote, Pacific Market, Tanioka's, Thelma's, and Poke Stop for the eggplant fries.

Good food in Kapolei?

Being food-interested San Diegans, surely you have driven 30 min. for a good meal on many previous occasions. Would you mind driving 30 min. into Honolulu to eat well? If not, read past threads on this board.

You might also interest yourselves in various events such as the Food and Wine Festival and the Feed the Hunger Foundation Annual Gala Sept. 27th, when Shinsato Farm pork will be on the menu.

Dear roro,

Knowing what an excellent cook you are, let me just ask: "Would you pay your own money to eat in any of the places you mentioned?

Just Wondering,

Good food in Kapolei?

Thai Lao. Generally good, reasonably priced, attractive.
Il Nonne. Good Italian, but not enough menu diversity yet.
El Mariachi. Not San Diego quality Mexican.
Pho808. Pretty good pho.
Monkeypod Kitchen. Awarded best new Oahu restaurant this year.
Tacos and More. Not been.
Kapolei Korean B.B.Q. OK.
Kahumana Café. Strictly farm to table. Bright flavors. Check opening times.
Spicy House. The Paneng curry has more potatoes than it used to.
Go to Waipahu for Thelma's lechon. Worth the drive.

Pie cherries in so.cal.

I have made an acceptable sour cherry pie using dried Montmorency cherries from Costco, but I believe frozen real sour cherries are available on the internet.

You want to spend a lot of money, take her to "...the absolute best fine dining...", but you are not willing to wear a shirt with a collar at Vintage Cave? Does not compute!

Kids, I should think, would prefer fillets dipped in panko/breadcrumbs and fried. Like fish sticks, but real food!
