Speaking of Wal*Mart…

Stopped by the Mililani Wal*Mart today and picked up some poi mochi. Poi is the purple glue we make from the kalo (taro) plant and serve to tourists to make them feel kind of Hawaiian. Mochi is a type of sugared Japanese rice dumpling commonly fed to children whose parents wonder why their kids are hyperactive. In Mililani, though, you can get both at the same time: poi mochi! Yes, two two two starches in one!

“Hey! Your taro fell into my mochi rice!”

“Wow! Your mochi rice is all over my taro!”

“Hey, let’s mash this up and deep fry it together!!!” Poi mochi!

    Ah, the doublestarch phenomenon. One of the first things my wife asked about. Two scoops rice and mac salad? Rice with a noodle dish… and bread? Dr. Atkins’ converts have their work cut out for them here.

    Sure, local-food headquarters L&L introduced a low-carb plate. But it was still piled so high with meat and eggs, it’d be just as deadly as chicken curry rice!
