Crab, Asparagus and Avocado Omelet (and Snapshots from Maui)

Maui 2013

  My husband and I walked back from the north end of Ka’anapali Beach, football and towel in hand, a little spent since we jogged the length of the beach and followed that with a game of catch and lots of swimming after that.  If anyone followed us closely enough they might have heard the […]
