We're having an email-arranged Easter brunch with cousins and friends. Plus an Easter egg hunt for a bunch of teenagers.
Yes, that unpredictable, quixotic, sometimes-vexing-and-often-times-mute 13-17 year-old demographic. I'm very happy that they are not too old to do this.
They are stuffed with, among other things, micro-origami paper, some fluffy chickies, ceramic Japanese bunnies (they're wearing kimono!) mini-Robin's eggs, and Japanese soda candy--a fun, fizzy hard candy that comes in melon, grape and an undefined "soda" flavor. American-Asian at its finest.
And of course, we have to eat. What I love about eating with the ohana is that we bring what we like, and it always ends up well-balanced and just plain ono.Ham
