The Luau Me Party

 Watched "Heidi" starring Shirley Temple while I was getting ready.  Hair in curlers...Unfortunately my hair decided that it wasn't going to curl this afternoon.

While I was waiting for my hair to set, I got to work on my food.  The first thing I made was the Roasted Sweet Potato Salad.  I figured that it could get cold and still taste great.  I was right.

I also got to work on my coconut tapioca pudding and toasting some coconut.  Instead of using milk, I used almond milk and reduced the amount needed by a half cup.  Once the tapioca was ready, I added some coconut milk (a taste of thai brand) and let it set up.  Right before I served it, I popped in my chocolate macadamia nut lacey cookie and toasted coconut.

Making  Roasted Sweet Potato Salad

 Took forever for me to figure out where a liquor store was today.  I don't usually buy booze.  If I drink I tend to go for a hard cider or a glass of wine.  Since I needed some rum, I decided to go with Sailor Jerry.  I mean, why not?

Finished up my shopping this morning with a trip to World Market (aside from the liquor store).  I found some cool bamboo knotted picks that I wanted to use for cherries and pineapple. 

I started dinner early around 4:45pm
Oh my, that's ME!

The full meal.

During the main meal, I played music from the Ultra-Lounge collection.  Then I turned on "I Eat Your Skin" (1964), a zombie movie that takes place on a mysterious tropical island...which I am currently enjoying.
