Whats with the snails
Monday. 7.23.07 1:58 pm



On the last day of our trip my mom made hawaiian food. Yum! That was good. I wish I took a picture of all the food but I didnt . Sorry...Anyhow there was one dish called Luau. Yes, it sounds like the word meaning the hawaiian show but Luau actually means feast. Anyhow luau is made with leaves from the taro root. My parents dont eat the taro because if they did they would not have any leaves left. They are so funny. The root is the best part of the plant.



Continuing on.... you have to boil the leaves long enough because undercooked leaves contain spiney fibers that scratch your throat. It is a very uncomfortable feeling. Sometimes the fibers get embedded in to the soft tissues of your mouth and throat and stay with you for hours. My mom made sure that she boiled them long enough. I think she had them in there for about 4 hours! I didnt care. The longer the better. I only ate a little of it but my sister had seconds.

Later that night my sister said, "look what I found in my luau." It was a little snail shell. I was like, "ooooo... a PRIZE!!" She said, "NO! this is from the back yard." I was like, "huh?" She said, "yeah, mom and dad grow their own leaves and pulled these from the back yard." "EWWW!!! If you show mom maybe she will tell you that you could keep it as a souveniour. ha ha." Well our mom, did not say such things. Instead she appoligized and was embarassed.

I told my sister... "I would not worry so much about the shell. I just wonder where the occupant went." When we got back to our homes (Maui and California) we both had the stomach flu. Hmm... I wonder what we could have eaten?

Poor snail!

Yes, it's pretty much blue jello in a cup. Nothing spectacular.

Poor snail, he was minding his own business, and then he might have gotten cooked!

Dollar Tree might have chopstick cases... I doubt it, but I can check.

Taro Root
Is taro the same thing we call "elephant ears"?

Never seen a forehead thermometer. I did see at Wal-mart they have a pacifier one but I heard they don't work very well.

That's a very nice looking snail shell.
