Sunday was a delightful epicurean day for us. We went from the very elegant table with beautifully prepared dishes for lunch at Gigi's to a Hawaiian pot luck for dinner. Our friends Dave and Diane invited us to a family pot luck. It was so much fun seeing all of their relatives who now feel like family to us. Everybody brought their favorite dishes and we gorged ourselves on one delicious morsel after another.
On the mainland, we often used to set a table and worked our tails off to have an appetizer, main course, salad, cooked veggie and dessert. I was always a bit stressed except with close friends who didn't care what I did. Here in Hawaii you can have a bunch of people over and not stress. You just have to make sure there's a LOT of food. It doesn't matter what, just a LOT of it.
Hmmmm... I guess that's why a lot of people here in Hawaii have two refrigerators.
