Smile Aloha Ka Kou

Aloha Ka Kou (Hello Everyone),

I just wanted to introduce myself to everyone. I've been a long time "lurker" but now I'm officailly registered. So I guess I'm now part of the DC 'Ohana (family). I grew up in Hawaii (Oahu) and now living in California. Ever since I was a kid, I love to cook. I'm just a guy who loves watching cooking shows and trying out the recipes. I am a big fan of the Food Network. I love to cook ethnic dishes such as Hawaiian, Filipino, Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese, etc. One thing about cooking is the dishes.......I hate doing dishes

Any hoo, just wanted to say "hi". Any one from Hawaii? If so, let's talk story (cooking) la'dat.

Mahalo,
Restless

Howzit to you too Sistah Wasabi,

I too grew up on the Leeward side of Oahu, Waipahu to be exact. Grew up and went to school there. Man, last time I went back, the town was not the same as it was back in the 80's. There were more pineapple and sugar cane fields back then. Now, there are strip malls and house where the fields used to be. Thinking about the memories is making think about the ono (delicious) plate lunches back home......I think I'll go and fix me up a "loco moco" with two sunny-side up eggs instead of one, oh yeah, a lot of sticky rice!

Hey jkath & texasgirl,

Your curiousity will be fulfilled. I just found out that Wasabi (Aunty, as I now call her) is the mother of a good friend of mine that I went to high school with. I met Aunty once back when I was in high school, that is when I picked her daughter up to go to the Senior Prom. What a small world we live in.

How cool is that! Restless and my daughter were captains for the cross country team in high school. It blew my mind when we started to pm each other and little by little we got to know how much we had in common. Yes, we are ohana.

Restless and my DD just had their 10th class reunion. It has been a long time. I have to dig in my photos to see if I can find her senior prom pictures, because I don't remember what he looks like.
