that pie must be a key lime pie or something with coconut, TG. Sounds like you should have plenty o' coconut already.

Hi Texasgirl your posting reminded me of my recent trip to Hawaii. For dessert we had a guava chiffon pie (this was at a Luau) and it was so incredibly delish yet so simple. Atleast it tasted simple

Basically had a prebaked pie shell
A guava puree (I am sure you can buy nectar and reduce it until it's thick and syrupy and cool it)
It was folded in gently with loads of whipped cream

It was one of those no baked filling and everyone was going for seconds.

For the entree (since I don't eat pork) they had a grilled chiken with mango that I enjoyed. It was basically chicken that was grilled (did not have many spices) and then it was sliced and stir fryed with medium mangoes (not totally ripe). The mangoes went really well with the grilled chicken and it tasted sort of sweet and sour.

I had an island-themed wedding on the 9th, our menu ended up being:
Cuban style pork, black beans & rice (a complete success)
Taco salad (??? a replacement for the conch fritters we were supposed to have - not very popular)
Lots and lots of cuban bread
Planter's punch
The world's greatest key lime pies
Followed by beer for the men and cocktails for the ladies
There might have been more food, I forget, I was too nervous to think!
