Probably one of Big Bear’s Favorite meals while we were in Hawaii was the Loco Moco. Loco Moco is a local favorite and from what I hear it’s pretty popular with surfers that need an easy protein packed meal for their day on the waves.
So what is a Loco Moco? Delicious, that what haha. It contains: Rice, a Hamburger patty (or two), brown gravy and a fried egg (or two).
So easy that it is kind of sad that we hadn’t been making them all along haha. I’ve made this meal so many time for BigBear since we got back that I’ve lost count. We’ve had it for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Big Bear loves them in the mornings because it gives him tons of fuel for the gym and for his day of work as a mechanic.
Since I’m bringing Hawaii to you in the form of a Loco Moco, I also wanted to share a special moment with you from our trip to Hawaii. You see those beads in the photo? They’re from our vow renewal ceremony. 🙂
Our trip to Hawaii was extra special for a number of reasons but one of the biggest reasons was because we were celebrating our 7th wedding anniversary. Now I know that most people save the big trips for 10th, 20th, 25th and such anniversaries, but the timing was right so we made it happen. Psst, plus 7 is my favorite number haha 😉
We had our vow renewal ceremony early on Friday on our last day in Hawaii. We stepped out onto the sand with about 7 other couples as a vow renewal ceremony was performed for us. There was even a blessing of our Kukui Nut Leis that we brought to exchange with each other during the ceremony.
We took our renewal vows in English and in Hawaiian.
I couldn’t think of a more perfect place to “re-marry” my husband.
Oh, I just loved it so much! Big and Grateful Thank Yous to Outrigger Reef for this! Such special memories that we couldn’t have had without you!
I suppose I’ve yapped enough about our sweet, kissy face vow renewal ceremony, you’re probably sitting there yelling, “Yeah, that’s sweet but let’s move onto the foooood.” Ok OK, I’m moving along. 😉
So yeah, the Loco Moco. It’s so simple that I’m having a hard time writing about it. I mean at first it doesn’t seem like much. I mean rice… mmm I love rice, burger…ok hubby is happy, Egg…well I’ll live, mmm brown gravy.
But once you put them all together it’s like Hawaiian magic!
Fill your bowl with soft white rice, top that with a well seasoned perfect hamburger patty, cover that up with a bright fried egg and
drizzle pour a ridiculous amount of beautiful brown gravy all over the top!
Now taste your little piece of Hawaiian heaven and fall in love.
I’m sure that you’ll love it just as much as we do! Heck you might even add it to your monthly menu like we have!

I love little bits of normal life that transport me back to paradise!
