day 5 started with an awesome breakfast.
after our dinner the previous night, i picked up some chili and rice from the take-out window at zippy’s. mmm… it made for an excellent breakfast! apparently one of the secrets to their chili is MAYONNAISE. there are beans, portuguese sausage, BACON, and ground beef.
for lunch, we went to kim chee ii restaurant.
cameron and i both had the lunch special. it included meat jun (hawaiian thing, beef and eggs and fried), bbq chicken, rice, and five veggie sides (seaweed, lightly pickled cabbage, bean sprouts, kim chee, pickled daikon). it was a pretty large meal, but very tasty.
later in the afternoon we went to the pearlrigde mall, and i had the BEST ice cream experience of my life. i was just looking and then the girl at the register of holotta ice cream asked if i wanted free samples :). i tried the coffee and banana. the coffee wasn’t very good because the flavor was too weak, but the banana was really good! the store girl asked about my bunny bunch shirt too so i liked her and felt bad not buying anything, so i got a small cup of banana ice cream. she gave me a lot! and it was really amazingly tasty. the texture of the ice cream was really soft and smooth (fit perfectly with the banana taste), and the flavor itself was right on. it was not too strong, tasted like real banana, and well balanced with the sweetness. by far the best banana ice cream i’ve ever had. i love holotta ice cream. i love it.
for dinner, cameron’s mom made CORNISH HENS! last year cameron’s mom also made cornish hens, and i ate like 2.5 (mine plus the leftovers of wei’s and bing’s cornish hens). this year she found a recipe from the food network site from emeril. it had a yummy stuffing, and was very delicious.

this year i only ate one at dinner. but that’s because i had to go watch american idol. yay melinda!
