Beautiful Saturday farmer’s market haul 🥭🐟🥐🥬
.
I have a confession. As a kid I was such a picky eater. I didn’t eat veggies. Maybe I’d eat the lū’au leaf in laulau and corn (if you even count that as a veggie 😂). 
.
Part of what got me into cooking was trying to broaden my horizons and palate and learn how to make and try new things. I also didn’t want my children to be picky eaters like me. So I hoped that if I offered them a variety of foods they may like it. 
.
Going to the farmer’s markets back in day always made me feel uncomfortable. I felt like people knew I did like veggies and thought why is she here. Silly me. No one even knew or thought a thing. 
.
Now I go almost every weekend to get some foods for the week and try to support local as best I can.
.
Got some ‘ono from Uncle Jamie, pōhole, Lehua kalo from Aunty, ribs and lamb from @lopes_farm_llc, got my greens in with a delicious smoothie from @mauismoothieco, mangoes, delicious sourdough English muffins from @homesteadmaui, more mangoes and mangosteen from @okoafarms, and a strawberry cream cheese croissant from @restaurant.marlow.
.
Check out @upcountryfarmersmarket and support local 🤙🏽

Let’s talk…
.
It’s ok to have a difference of opinions.
It’s ok not to like the same things as others. 
.
But what I do ask is to keep Keeping It Relle a positive, encouraging, and uplifting place for everyone.
.
If you have a tip or trick that will help me or someone else, I’d love to hear. I’m all about the constructive criticism, but let’s keep the Aloha here. 
.
Happy Aloha Friday. Have a wonderful weekend 🫶🏼

💢Comment SHRIMP for the recipe 💢
.
Quick and easy dinner recipes are my fave! Nothing like throwing a few ingredients together and in less than 30min dinner is ready to feed your ‘ohana and friends. 
.
One of my go to’s at our house is my husband’s favorite shrimp curry 🦐🍛
.
This time I used @foodlandhi Maika’i Raw White Shrimp and it turned out so yummy. You can find the shrimp in the freezer section at your local Foodland. 
.
Give this recipe a try and let me know what you think!

💢Comment PRUNE MUI for the recipe💢
.
Happy Aloha Friday. What better way to end the week than with some delicious treats?!?
.
Growing up I loved going tit he crack seed store and choosing something out of the big glass jars. One of my go tos, prune mui. 
.
Now I know everyone has their own version, but this is mine. Stop by your local @foodlandhi and grab yourself some Maika’i Organic Dried and Pitted Prunes and some Maika’i Dried Turkish Apricots to make this delicious treat. 
.
And from now until 04.16.2024 you can Make It Maika’i and earn 2x Maika’i Points on all Maika’i products.
