Happy Aloha Friday – Nutty Edition

imageAh, it’s Friday!  We had a fun response with last week’s Aloha Friday, so I thought we’d try it again.

If you have a blog and would like to participate in Aloha Friday too, then go to An Island Life to check out the details.  It’s easy to do and a lot of fun to welcome in the weekend Hawaii-style. 

Earlier, I shared some information on macadamia nuts and visiting farms in Hawaii.  (The photo on the left is a macadamia nut tree, by the way.)  So, I thought we’d continue the nut theme for this week’s Aloha Friday.  I love macadamia nuts, especially when they are milk chocolate toffee coated. They are so ono!  (Ono is the Hawaiian word for delicious.)  Are you nutty over nuts, too?  What’s your favorite nut? 

  1. I love nuts – nuts do not love me. *sniff* However, my favorite is the cashew. I used to eat them by the cans full. Of course, I paid for it later, but it was worth the discomfort! lol

  2. LOL, Karen. Cashews are great!

    Rach – I like pistachios to an extent and as long as I don’t look at them. The green stuff freaks me out. πŸ™‚

  3. I love macadamia nuts, but Godiva Chocolates has a hazelnut chocolate to die for and I absolutely love the hot nuts they serve on airplanes. (Although I never eat the pistachios, sorry Rach & Sheila) I think I have to say macadamia nuts are my favorite especially with white chocolate in cookies.

  4. Maybe this nut theme wasn’t such a good idea….I’m CRAVING all of these nut suggestions now. πŸ™‚

    Pinkjagxj & Christine – are you talking about the refrigerated toll house kind of white chocolate mac nut cookies? I LOVE those!

    Summer – Peanuts are great, too….and a lot cheaper than mac nuts.

    Thanks everyone for stopping in and commenting. πŸ™‚

  5. Debo Hobo – They are high in fat, but let’s keep telling ourselves that it’s healthy fat. πŸ™‚

    Christian – Uh oh….I’ve not tried Island Princess brand. I bet I could put “a hurtin’ on those in a hurry”. πŸ™‚ Where do you find that brand?

  6. You guys are all nuts! LOL. Hey Debo Hobo, have you ever tried Cashew Butter (in place of peanut butter)? Man is it good, but Sheila is correct, Cashews are not healthy for you. (If you want more nutritional tips, visit my blog) Sheila, I like your blog. I am jealous you visit Hawaii often. I will make it there someday …somehow.

  7. CoryL – thanks for stopping by and commenting. I hope you’ll get to Hawaii soon, but if not, hopefully you get a glipse of Hawaii by visiting this blog. πŸ™‚

  8. Sheila,
    I haven’t tried the refrigerator Toll House cookies but you can bet I will now. Anytime I see fresh White Chocolate Macadamia Nut cookies I have to have some. Mrs. Fields, Subway, Cocoa’s. My husband and I recently moved from Florida to CA and we had plenty of opportunities to eat out and find fresh cookies.

  9. pinkjagxj – let me know if you end up liking the refrigerated white choc mac nut cookies. The taste and smell so good.

    Marie – yum…hazelnuts and chocolate…that’s a great combination!

    Grace – I’ve not tried mac nuts on brownies, but sounds delicious. I love the flavor of roasted nuts.
