December 4 and 5, 2010

December 4 was zipline day :)
It was very fun, but didn't last as long as we wanted it to. There weren't really any meals on that day either because we left home so early and got back fairly late, it was mostly a snaking kind of day, but we did indulge in one thing that they have in maui that they don't have here on Oahu, and that would be...Krispy Kreme!

I was so excited, I took a picture.

After that we drove around and enjoyed the scenery for a while, because Maui is so much calmer and rural that anywhere on Oahu, it was amazing and very peaceful. No traffic or anything. Then it was time to zip!

It was a fun day. 

December 5 was my  mom's last day here, so we wanted to get in as much stuff as we could. That morning we got up and went to the Pali Lookout and to Diamond Head, and to a lighthouse near Diamond Head that she wanted some pictures of. After that, we went to Macy's and she got me a steam mop, so that should be much better than the old fashioned one I had that doesn't even have a thing to wring it out with, haha.

The original plan after that was to go to North Shore, but we decided to forgo that, as there was most likely far too many people out on that side of the island. Instead, we ate a small snack (sour cream and onion chex mix, which was interesting...very strongly flavored for sure), and decided on chicken tacos for dinner.
For the tacos, I boil a chicken breast (one chicken breast was enough to make 6 tacos) and then shred it up with two forks. While I'm shredding, I put a can of tomato juice and some spices on the stovetop to let it simmer and reduce some so it's thick enough to really coat the chicken when I add the chicken. After that, I mix the chicken in and let it cook down for about 5-7 more minutes.
