So here we are, the day after Christmas, also known as boxing day in Canada and Britain. Originally Boxing Day was designated to give your servants a small token of your appreciation.
Now days it’s just another excuse to go shopping to pick up some more stuff on sale that you don’t need, don’t really want and will eventually end up in a box somewhere.
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed your Christmas Eve and Christmas gatherings. I know the Wons did. They pre-recorded their annual Christmas greeting to the little people while still in Washington so it wouldn’t intrude on valuable family time in Hawaii.
I guess somebody on the PR payroll advised Barry that he had to say something about Christians on Christmas – you know, like he praises Muslims during Ramadan - so in a rather weird Christmas message he denounced the persecution of Christians in the Middle East. Better late than never butt it was strange in that he mentioned only “ISIL” as the persecutors. Evem though it is widely known that Christiantiy is tolerated in places like Saudi Arabia about as well as it was in the former USSR. And as WND pointed out:
Just issuing a Christmas message deploring the persecution of believers in Syria and Iraq – two countries the Obama administration has messed up badly with its incoherent policies that have actually helped ISIS – rings a little hollow.
Butt hey – it’s the lack of thought that counts, right?
Anyway, you’ll be glad to know that the Wons enjoyed their Christmas Eve dinner at the trendy (natch) MW restaurant that features Hawaiian fare and cocktails made from local ingredients (natch). So what is your traditional Christmas Eve fare? Lasagna? Chili? Goulash? Next year you might want to consider adding some traditional Hawaiian fare like the Obama family does. Here are a few suggestions from the locovore MW restaurant you might want to try:
Kurobuta pork chop Spicy Korean Style Pork, Sauteed Nagaimo, Ho Farms Vegetables $ 39
Or maybe some duck confit?
Or how about one of the house specials, “beef and foie gras” - Braised Shortribs, Seared Hudson Valley Foie Gras, Truffled Smashed Potatoes $45
Hudson Valley foie gras? I wonder which part of Oahu that’s in?
And don’t even get me started on the truffles…
So watch out for that left jab Barry, ISIL as you like to call them, could shatter that glass jaw of yours.
