Happy New Year!

We had a very quiet New Years celebration. Cooked a prime rib roast for the very first time yesterday for the kids and my parents. I was so relieved that it turned out pretty good. Will definitely do it again.
After getting all the animals settled (poor things, they get so frazzled with the fireworks), we went to sleep early…..I slept through the midnight firecrackers.
Woke up early this morning to go fishing. It was so much fun! Kent and I launched our stand up paddle boards off of Kihei, paddled about a mile out and dropped our lines. It was an absolutely gorgeous day, no wind, glassy clean water and lots of sunshine.
We caught quite a few smaller fish but let them all go.
This is my catch of the day which I was not about to put back (Kent is so picky when it comes to fish)! We’re gonna cook it up tomorrow….haven’t decided if we should steam or fry.

 

2 pound ‘A’awa (Hawaiian Hogfish)

We have plans to go out again Sunday…..gotta do something when there’s no surf!

Hope you all had a fun New Years celebration and that the New Year brings much peace and satisfaction.
