We begin the first “Grindz of the Day” for 2016 from where? From da’ beginning! As well as you may ask. lol Let’s start with a set of Musubi from Cafe Iyasume, which is no question, THE BEST place to get your Musubi on in the WORLD, period. Well, OK, I’m sure Japan has better Musubi than here in Hawaii, however, FWIW (for what it’s worth), all things considered, including LOCATION, Iyasume RULES!
Next up, Diner E cooked this AMAZINGLY OISHII Broccoli and Crab Casserole that I was like “OMG!”!!!! Dude! Fortunately in his always generous heart, he was willing to share his recipe, to which I’m sharing it with you now. Yay!
By Diner E
- 1 pack of imitation crab (use real jumbo lump crab if you’re rich lol), cut into bite-size pieces
- 1 pounds broccoli, cut into bite-size pieces
- 1 can of Cream of Mushroom Soup
- 1 cup mayonnaise (Best Foods/Hellman’s preferably)
- 2 cups grated Cheddar Cheese
- Ritz® Crackers, crumbled finely (like breadcrumbs)
Preheat oven to 350ºF.
Par-cook broccoli in a pot of rapidly boiling water until semi-tender, then drain and dry thoroughly.
Combine cream of mushroom soup, mayonnaise and about 1 cup of the grated Cheddar Cheese in a large mixing bowl.
Add crab and par-cooked broccoli to the bowl with the mushroom soup/mayo/cheddar cheese mixture and combine loosely with hands or large spoon until coated evenly.
Before adding the mixture, sprinkle a layer of Ritz Crackers on bottom of baking pan, then spread mixture over that. Top the casserole by sprinkling with remaining Cheddar Cheese, followed finally with a sprinkling of more Ritz Cracker crumbs, enough to make a “crust” if you will.
Bake Crab & Broccoli casserole uncovered (don’t put foil on it) in preheated 350ºF oven for about 30 minutes. Let cool to allow it to “set”, then serve and enjoy!
Finally, production began proverbially with a BANG! in 2016 for Hawaii Five-0, where they were filming yesterday at Dole Cannery in Iwilei, pretty much throughout the entire day. Being my office is nearby there, I was fortunate to catch some of the action, of which I’m sharing with you, as always. ;-)
Hawaii Five-0 reboot 2016: Steve McGarrett’s Black Chevy Camaro (the stunt double model) on the set at Dole Cannery in Iwilei, preparing for a gun fight (and yes, those are real HPD officers directing traffic, not actors) ~ 2.07.16
Hawaii Five-0 reboot 2016: a marked Honolulu Police Department (HPD) cruiser on the set ready for a gun fight (HPD’s REAL squad cars are FORD, not Chevy, while the markings are slightly different, yet very close!)
Here’s video clips I shot with my Note 4 (I should have zoomed-in tighter)….
This is Ryan Ozawa’s footage of those same Five-0 takes the same time I was there….
