It’s Winter in Hawaii

Guess what? We woke up this morning and it was raining! I know that doesn’t sound like a big deal but I can literally count on one hand the times we’ve woken up to rain since moving here. Since we live leeward by the water our showers almost always come at night, though we might get a few sprinkles in the afternoon. So a cool, rainy morning is the closest we get to a blizzard and that makes it cause for celebration.
When we lived in the mountains and it snowed, I would always make Snowballs for breakfast (Aebelskivers covered in powdered sugar). We’ve done the same thing here on those rare rainy mornings like today. Only I was out of buttermilk and my favorite substitute, coconut milk, so we had to celebrate with Space Monkey Bread instead. I also added Flying Saucer Sausage Patties and Shooting Star Fruit to the menu. What makes Space Monkey Bread and Flying Saucer patties different from normal monkey bread and sausage patties? Just a heaping Tablespoon of imagination and cup overflowing with fun! Now hopefully it will clear up later for those solar experiments we’re supposed to be conducting today.
