For example, my thoroughly beautiful and ridiculously charming nieces and nephews are poi-dogs: Hawaiian-Chinese-Portuguese-Japanese-Cherokee-English and Japanese-Chinese-Hawaiian-English-Irish-Dutch-Portuguese. I have a friend who is Indonesian-Jewish, and my cousins are Japanese-Chinese-Irish-Jewish. Think of it as one step beyond hapa.
So this week, we're eating poi dog style...a little bit from everywhere, yet wholeheartedly American. Perfect for the week leading up to the 4th of July.
Tuesday--Costco run for chicken. BBQ chicken pizza
Wednesday--Orange-salsa pork chops, green beans and jasmine rice
Thursday--Chicken satay, chard from the garden and yaki musubi
Friday--Tofu steaks, salad and rice
Eat Well. Be Well. Celebrate the poi dog in us all.
