Best Gift to Give a Hawaiian...

One of my good friends from high school, Gari-Ann, wrote on her blog a post about "How do you know a Hawaiian loves you?" and it was one of the best things I have read in a while.  It made me laugh until my insides hurt because it was totally true!  The best gift to give a Hawaiian and show that you love them is HAWAIIAN/LOCAL FOOD!  We Hawaiians, eat some weird (and delicious!) food and we always got the best packages in college.  I remember the packages my parents sent me always weirded out my non-Hawaiian roommates but would get raided by my Hawaiian ones.  

Two of my coworkers went to Hawaii this past week to visit family and they came back with awesome gifts.  Janette brought back Ke'alohi the cutest outfit and two Hawaiian shirts.  I can't wait to put Ke'alohi in those clothes!  My other coworker Perry brought back (drum roll please) LAULAU!  Laulau is a Hawaiian dish that is pork and butterfish, wrapped in luau and ti leaves, then steamed.  It is one of my favorite foods and she got it in Hilo at one of the best places for Hawaiian food, Wiki Wiki Kitchen.  It is sitting in my freezer waiting to be eaten by me.  The only problem I have right now is deciding when to eat it and hiding it from Lucas so he doesn't get to it!

Living up here on the mainland has made me realize how much I love Hawaii, miss it and I can't wait to move back!  Thank you Janette and Perry for bringing back the sweetest gifts from your vacation!
