hawaii remembers

lanai I was trying to remember when was the first time I had a scone...

I am kind of leaning towards the time we stayed at the Lodge at Koele on the island of Lanai, when we got married in 2000.

Usually whenever you have a wedding reception at a hotel in Hawaii, the hotel includes a room for you to stay in.

Since we had our reception at a golf clubhouse, the clubhouse catering gave us a room at any hotel of our choice.

We chose the Lodge at Koele, so all we had to pay for was our airfare.

The hotel had a daily afternoon tea held in their lobby area and guests could have various teas and sweets...one of them being scones.

Recently my friend, Val, gave me a package of those scones from the Lodge...these are dense but are delicious after they are toasted a little.

No need for butter or jam, the cranberries give them a lot of flavor.

I'm glad I got to re-connect with these scones, thanks Val!

I wasn't much of a foodie back then Deb in Hawaii, so that is as far as my memory takes me ;)

Take care.

I had no idea about hotels comping rooms when you arrange a reception with them, but that makes sense. In any case, how nice of Val to get you some scones!

K and S said...

so true about food and memories J-A!

Rowena, really?! maybe I just think they comp everyone that has a reception at their hotel...

Take care you two.

What a great food memory! Some hotel chains give you chocolate chip cookies here - love them, haha.

I think we had a hotel here that gave warm chocolate chip cookies too, K, not sure if they are still operating here though.

Take care.
