Adventures in food: the catch up post (Giovanni Pastrami)  
I've been trying to be good about my healthy eating lately in an attempt to lose my last 10 pounds before my cruise in March, so I won't be going out to eat that much anymore... Mark & I did spend a lot of time in December eating at various really great places (which I never had the chance to really post about...) One place I couldn't NOT mention was Giovanni Pastrami in Waikiki.

In December, Mark & I visited Giovanni Pastrami on the recommendation of one of my co-workers during our overnight stay at the Halekulani Hotel for my work's holiday party. It was one of the best eating suggestions we had in a long time, and Mark ABSOLUTELY loved it!! He said that they have THE BEST corned beef reuben he has EVER tasted!!

Here's a photo of the outside of Giovanni Pastrami - it was sort of a
sports bar type place with TV screens everywhere showing all the various football games.

Here's a photo of Mark's corned beef reuben... it was just dripping with melted cheese.
If I ate meat...

I opted for the thin crust veggie pizza (which had zucchini, spinach, mushrooms, and olives)
It was SOOOOO yummy!!

Here's Mark showing off the goodness of his sandwich. :)

And here I am with my veggie pizza. :)

Oh well, I'm off to do some web work, and try NOT to think of this place as I heat up my lean cuisine frozen cheese pizza. ;) Hope you're all having a nice Sunday. :) HUGS!

The pizza was delicious, and Mark just raved about the reuben! :)

But now I'm in the same boat as you - off to eat my lean cuisine lunch. :P

I just wish we all lived close, I would slap you all and then feed you well. :) Eating healthy food does not mean frozen pizza or plain brocolli!

Haha!! Yes, I do wish we all lived close by! In place of that, I have been making use of your great recipes, though! Thanks so much!! :)

I see I can enjoy those food pictures much more when I've already eaten something. :D Both looks delicious but I think I too had chosen the veggie pizza (without olives, please!). You and Mark not only look great but also as if you enjoyed your food adventure. :) My Sunday was nice but it's already gone. I hope you too had a nice Sunday! Big hugs to you, Sheri!

Haha! The veggie pizza was quite good! We really did enjoy ourselves and Mark LOVED his corned beef sandwich! :) Big HUGS and much love to you, Sabine!!
