I love to cook!

So good to be home again!  Before my eyes even open in the morning, my ears are greeted by the singing birds in the palm trees outside my window.  But I don't linger there long, because I know that even with my head on my pillow, I can see the beautiful blue sky and ocean.  Is Hawaii really as beautiful as all that? Yes!  And even more so!  What a gift.

Since arriving home Tuesday morning from our 2 month trip, I've waded through the Everest-sized pile of mail, unpacked and feel like I've really arrived.  Last night I was at the Four Seasons Hualalai Resort to photograph a sunset wedding.  So sweet!  I'll post photos in a few days...

And on this lazy day, I made this most delicious meal that I slightly adapted from a cookbook I picked up in New Zealand, Seasons by Donna Hay: scallops with lime wasabi dressing (page 88).  I used fresh mint instead of the recommended green onions for a most refreshing flavor combination!

Tomorrow night, I'm doing a portrait shoot for a CD here.  Plan to treat my clients to a meal first, and wondering what to fix.  It's been so long since I've been able to cook (and who would WANT to cook when the food is so delicious in Singapore) that it's so fun to create again!
