O'hana means family, and Family means - everyone gets bread!

"There’s no place I’d rather be.. Then on my surfboard out at sea
Lingering in the ocean blue..And If I had one wish come true
I’d surf till the sun sets.. Beyond the horizon
A wiki wiki mai lohi lohi
Lawe mai i ko papa he'e nalu
Flyin by on the Hawaiian roller coaster ride!"

^^ See those wild things?  About 90% of those in that picture are 'Experiments'.  And as such is this blog!
For THIS veganization we're going to 'Experiment' with something even more out of this world than 626 himself! (And if you haven't seen Lilo and Stitch.. RUN, NOW, BUY THE MOVIE!! Soo cute!)

For this veganization we're traveling to a resort hotel in Disney World.  The most beautiful (the one my sis and I always wanted to stay in but dad always chose the Contemporary instead).. the incomparable:  Polynesian Resort.

Let's see what Disney.com has to say about the Poly, shall we?:

"Disney's Polynesian Resort is a relaxing tropical paradise, featuring lush vegetation, thatched roofs, koi ponds and white-sand lakebeaches and offering a warm, welcoming world that celebrates the spirit of the South Pacific and ensures "Ho'Onanea"—the passing of time in languid tranquility.
With 11 2-story and 3-story village longhouses that flank the Great Ceremonial House—built to resemble a royal Tahitian assembly lodge—the Resort has 847 luxurious rooms, decorated with rich tropical colors and furnished in traditional bamboo and rattan.
Inside the Great Ceremonial House, water cascades over craggy volcanic rocks, while coconut palms tower over more than 75 different indigenous species. Also inside is shopping, dining and an awe-inspiring torch-lighting ceremony—a Polynesian welcoming of the night that includes a traditional fire-knife dance, accompanied by authentic drumming and chants.
Disney's Polynesian Resort offers a variety of recreation, including the Nanea Volcano Pool, featuring a 40-foot high volcano with a waterfall and tubular waterslide, fishing, boating, waterskiing and parasailing on Bay Lake and Seven Seas Lagoon. Also on the Seven Seas Lagoon, a dazzling, musical Electrical Water Pageant is held nightly."

And what's more, is that when you go inside the 'Great Ceremonial House' there's a smell there, wildly enough kind of like water with too much chlorine in it, basking over moldy rocks.. it's a scent you seriously have to smell to appreciate it.  It's one of those Disney scents that only Disney fanatics (such as myself) would say.. "I wish they could bottle this!"    Anyhoo.. where are we going in this hotel?   Well, we're heading to the famed "O'hana".. where their breakfast bread is truly a show on it's own.   

And.. that's what we're making!   O'hana's Pineapple Coconut Breakfast Bread!   This is something that they serve all day if I remember correctly, but it's truly a breakfast treat, and it's always the first thing that is gone in the bread basket when it's brought.   And who better to try it on than my OWN O'hana who loves it equally as much as I do.. (if not more)?

So what does this fantasmic bread actually look like in it's un-veganized form in the great O'HANA?


 And then.. what to call this bread in it's veganized form?   Maybe we should ask a foodie expert.  One who resides in Hawaii!    Hey Stitch my man...  gimme a hint?!
Ummm... ok, how's about this... with the numbers this time.   I don't really understand Alien.... eeps!

Now that we have that taken care of, it's time to get the grocery listie ready for this lil bit of Hawaii here in the lower 48.   While I get prepared, maybe you all should enjoy, once again, my favorite song?  Maybe by the time I blog again, you'll all have learned the hula too!

Aloha Oi.. until we meet again!
