Tonight, David’s brother, Mike, and his family will be coming over for dinner. It’s their annual trek from Boston to Hawaii, and they always stay in a cottage on Kailua beach for two weeks. It will be nice to see them again.
My menu will be a green salad, pasta salad, shrimp and zucchini stir-fry, and cheese pizza. Dessert will be raspberry sorbet.
There will be nine of us: Mike’s family of four, Maria and her two children, David and me.
Grant will be unable to attend, as he will be selling his wares at the Made in Hawaii Festival. This is a yearly three day event at the Blaisdell, which attracts thousands of tourists and residents.
You might recall this beautiful platter with a Maori design that I purchased from Grant several years ago. It is typical of the kind of etched glassware he creates:
Grant’s website, Oka Etchworks, is listed on my blogroll. Do click on it to see more of his work.
