Here's Rosie and Kunaka at the beach from a couple of weeks ago.
Kunaka and his cousin Keohi had their one year luau yesterday in the POURING rain. Luckily they had set up four giant tents-- hundreds of people came. And there was a bounty of delicious food:
steamed buns, black bean manapua, sticky coconut rice in banana leaf, fried Kole (some of which Matt caught), pasta salad, potato salad, inarizushi, pickled seaweed with cucumber, fern frond with kimchee, fern frond with soy sauce, tuna poke (raw fish), shoyu crab poke, kimchee crab poke, fried fish filets, kalua pig, smoke meat, chicken long rice (glass noodles), japanese pickle salad, sesame fried chicken, meat balls, rice and poi.
And that's not even dessert! Some highlights: sweet potato with coconut milk, stiff japanese style jello, congo bars, haupia, guava cheesecake, bread pudding, etc. etc. etc.
So ono. A towering slide spraying icy water into the icy air. Yes it has been snowing on the mountain, we are all huddled in the tents in our jackets, and outside the kids are playing on this aptly named behemoth, and then traipsing through the food line in their bikinis, making everyone shiver!
