1149 Lau Laus

This evening I helped a coworker prepare for his son's wedding. I was one member of a team that eventually produced Eleven Hundred Forty Nine Lau Laus. For those who have never tasted even one, a Lau Lau is a tasty bundle of fish, pork, beef and/or chicken wrapped in Taro leaves and then wrapped in Ti leaves. The cute packets are then steamed, often in coconut milk, until the meats are cooked and the Taro leaves are soft like spinach. Ti leaves are sacred, and I believe such packets of love are good luck.
Good luck to the happy couple!
