Happy 4th of July...Hawaii style

Another Summer Garden Party
In Celebration of 4th of July
Hawaii Style

Yesterday, Jimmy and I entertained my family in our garden. My older brother Duane, my sister-in-law Sarah, my mom Florence, my dad Jerry, and my younger brother Brad were able to join us. Brad's wife Michelle was on a business trip and was actually having fun on the roller coaster ride at Disneyland while we ate dinner.

We had ourselves a potluck barbeque. Our menu: on the grill, Jimmy cooked up onolicious (aka "delicious") teriyaki chicken (marinated by my younger brother Brad), yummy Hamachi collar (the tasty part of the Hamachi fish), tender pork chops, corn on the cob, eggplant, bell peppers, and purple sweet onions. Jimmy whipped up his homemade salsa and guacamole dips to go with tortilla chips. I served Plantation Iced Tea with pineapple juice and lots of mint. There were bowls of lichi, cherries, ice cold local watermelon, and tomato & corn salad. For dessert, I made mango tapioca pearl dessert which was delicious!

Remember that vintage chair we found outside the Buddhist
temple? Well, here it is refurbished and painted
a glorious Chinese Red.
