Kelli's friends had a picnic at Ala Moana Beach Park this past weekend. It was a potluck event. I cooked up some yakisoba to bring like a Hiroshima Style Okonomiyaki dish. This is the yakisoba.
I put the yakisoba (stir fried thin slices of pork and cabbage with noodles) into a pan and draped the top with thin, crepe style egg sheets. On top of the egg is some okonomiyaki sauce, mayonnaise, nori (Japanese dried seaweed) & some pink pickled ginger.
If this were at a restaurant, it would usually be prepared and served on a grill right in front of you. Similar to teppanyaki restaurants. It's a little different eating it after it was prepared in advance, cutting it up and scooping it out of a pan, but it tasted like a good yakisoba anyway.
Here are a couple of shots of the tree that we were under. It was very relaxing laying down and looking up through the leaves to the blue skies above.
These big trucks were cruising through the park in the afternoon. They looked pretty nice.
I don't know if these people knew what they were walking on, but I thought it was an intersting sight. They are kind of small (in contrast to the huge sewer pipe) so it's difficult to see them. There were 2 people that I watched as I was sitting at the traffic light waiting to turn into the park. They climbed up just to walk on the giant sewer pipe. I thought it was a yucky thing to do, but perhaps they did not know what was flowing through that huge pipe.
