Beach Towel Luau

Low-key decor for last weekend’s luau!

Happy Monday! We survived 90+ degree weather this weekend, and it’s supposed to top 91 today–how’s it going for you?


We have some very good friends who throw a “Family Dinner” almost every Friday night. We finally go the chance to reciprocate, so we threw a luau! Fun, relatively cheap, and easy to feed a crowd. As you can see above, I relied heavily on beach towels for decor, as I’ve been trying to generate less waste. I had to buy leis, however. I justified it by saving them so we can use them on an annual basis.

The kalua pig recipe I use could not be easier. You just throw a little salt and liquid smoke on a pork butt, and simmer it in a slow cooker for 24 hours. The meat melts into a puddle of deliciousness.

I am a huge fan of Hawaiian mac salad. A little too much of a fan, as I made way too much (I will eat it all, eventually). The Wanderlust Kitchen’s recipe is simple but quite yummy.

This Shrimp Coconut Curry with Spaghetti Squash isn’t Hawaiian, per se, but it is colorful and tasty.


Writer Scott Snyder (Batman, Wytches) gave an interesting interview where he discusses using horror as an antidepressant.

And, here’s an interview with director James Gunn about the upcoming (yay!) Guardians of the Galaxy 2.

I’m planning on writing a post about how to design a baby nursery (even if you suck at it) this week, as well as some more fashion-y stuff.

Have anything to share? Post it below!
