Yes, I remember that the fruit must be all gone before we land. I am just planning 1 apple, 1 orange, and 1 banana for each of us during the day. And if I have to toss a banana in the trash before we land, it was good insurance to have it at hand if it was needed.

I also had a brilliant idea after I posted this, we have an amazing Moroccan restaurant that we absolutely adore (for anyone local, it's Marrakech on Ludlow in the Clifton Gaslight District--Amazing, Delicious, and very reasonably priced!) They have the most amazing food (it's a Moroccan family doing their homecooking). I'm going to order all of the dishes for the Arabian Feast from them and they will be all packaged and ready to go. I'll pick them up the afternoon before we leave when I'm making the rounds picking up sausages and the house-made coldcuts from Avrils for the Muffaletta. Will save me a lot of time in the kitchen the day before leaving! They will also be able to supply a succulent selection of Moroccan pastries, cookies, baclawa, etc. MMMMMM....

As far as Hilo side, I think with our plans to be out hiking and exploring in the wilds of Puna, the Volcano National Park trails, Southpoint and Greensand Beach, etc. We will be picnicking most days. We also have use of kitchen facilities at the B&B, so after a long day of activity, we'll probably just head back to the ranch to have a glass of wind and cook our own dinner so that we can get an early start the next day The only day that we'll probably be sitting in a restaurant is the day we have planned to see Hilo and museums.

Any suggestions are welcome!
