Care Package Dressing

You never know what will show up in the mail when the package is from my Hawaii brother. A t-shirt printed with a lavender mahimahi (he catches the fish himself and prints shirts or paper with them. I'm not sure if he eats them afterward but he's an adventurous guy - he might!); a packet of drawings from his daughter who loves animals even more than I do (she recently adopted a hen who loves to be held and petted but who scares the s**t out of their very macho cat); a letter with greetings from his wife and each of his children; and salad dressing, wrapped up in the t-shirt.

Good thing this dressing was in a soft plastic bottle - it survived the USPS unscathed. The flavor is sesame-miso and, according to the package, it works equally well as a salad dressing or as a marinade for various meats and fish. Despite the Italian name, Angelo Pietro, it is made in Japan and exported to Hawaii. So far, we have explored only its salad dressing capabilities and we can attest to its excellence on summer salads. Stand by for the review when we marinate some grillables in it.

It's always a blast to get a package from the Island branch of the family - no matter what's inside, it will be fun!

* Late breaking news from Hawaii states: "
Oh and the fish do get eaten even after being printed. I used non-toxic paint to start and wash it off before cutting. The skin is also peeled off so there's no paint anyway."

Glad to hear the fish aren't wasted. I love care packages from "home", they are wonderful things.

Morgan, we are a frugal lot and, yes, care packages, especially surprise ones, are the best!
