When it’s summertime, I always think of luaus. And when I think of luaus, I think of great food, good friends, lots of laughs, and plenty of coconut and pineapple.
My husband and I have thrown our fair share of luaus over the years, and they’re always the parties which resonate the most in our (and hopefully our guests) memories. Perhaps it’s because we’ve never been to Hawaii, so throwing a luau has been our way to travel there, without ever leaving home.
When I think of Isabel, I think of delicious food, the Florida sunshine, and bright, vivid colors, much like Isabel’s personality. Pink Lemonade Cookies seemed appropriate for Isabel’s party because they remind me of Florida flamingos, Isabel’s friendly nature, and let’s face it, who doesn’t enjoy cookies at a party, virtual or not?
I’ve never been to Hawaii, and it’s on my bucket list of places I’d like to visit one day. Until that time, the closest I’ll get is that my husband and I are throwing a big luau party/pig roast party in our backyard in the next couple of weeks. These cookies will be on the dessert menu.
