The most precious gift we have of all is time. Time to do what we want. Time to spend with loved ones. Time to enjoy life. Time to live the life we plan for ourselves.
A dear friend called me and requested that instead of exchanging gifts with each other–for Christmas or for birthdays–the best gift of all would be to spend time together–chatting, laughing, enjoying good food and drinks.
As working moms and community supporters our calendars are full but we found a lunch hour in our schedules to hang out and enjoy our gift of time with each other.We visited one of our favorite restaurants in downtown Hilo–Moon and Turtle.Started with my favorite appetizer–smokey sashimi.Added a delicious crispy Brussels sprouts flavored with Vietnamese fish sauce topped with crispy iriko.We also shared the market fish special from Chef Mark Pomaski.The final taste was a beautiful latte, one of Soni Pomaski’s specialties.Enjoying good food while spending time with good friends–the best gift of all.
