Dinner for Two: our week in food

This week I am in deep cooking mode trying to figure out my Signature Dish for my MasterChef application. One of my goals before I turn 30 is to try-out for a reality TV show. Therefore, October is Signature Dish month, can't wait to share what I've been creating!

Saturday: Roasted eggplant tacos with asparagus and avocado salsa. Signature Dish possibility.

Sunday: Fresh tombo ahi (albacore tuna) steaks with stir-fried buckwheat noodles, broccoli and chard.

Monday: Duck at the new Sam Choy's in Keauhou. Meh, we were expecting better. But, this was still a really fun night (my make-up date).

Tuesday: Seared albacore with roasted eggplant and arugula salad, balsamic sauce, and tapenade. Signature Dish possibility.

Wednesday: Roasted broccoli pasta dressed in olive oil, garlic, and olives. Signature Dish possibility.

Thursday: Store-bought cheese tortellini with asparagus and tomatoes.

Friday: Wild Mushroom and Puna Pie pizzas at Kona Brewing Co. with my folks. They are visiting from Washington!


  1. Holy snickerdoodles. That takes some serious guts. The dishes sound amazing and put me to shame. Good luck with your application!!

  2. AH! So exciting! I wish you the best of luck!

  3. Good luck making up your mind on what to use as a signature dish.

    All the best with your application and keep us posted! :)

    P.S: If we could vote, the eggplant tacos sound slightly more interesting than the broccoli pasta. But maybe that's just us :)

  4. Eggplant tacos?! Those sound amazing! Post the recipe, please!



  5. Yumm yummm! Everything sounds amazing! Let me know what you choose...


Aloha Saturdays with Maggy reader! Thank you for your comments, I love hearing your thoughts and feedback.
