As many of you know, I grew up in Hawaii, in the quaint little village of Laie.
Many of you also know that I have been working away at my version of the Great American Novel for the last little while. Due to a bout of homesickness brought on by a cruel Utah winter, my story is set in (surprise) Laie.
It was also in Laie that I learned to love the great taste of guava - the same taste I am about to share with a few lucky people in the form of my Guavalicious apple butter.
To enter the contest, simply add a comment to this post that completes the following sentence: "A story set in Hawaii simply has to include _____."
There are no right or wrong answers. I'm just curious to see what everyone has to say, both "insiders and outsiders". I also think it could be fun to try and use as many of these suggestions as possible. You can make as many as you want, but your name only goes in the hat once.
I will add a jar of Guavalicious to the prize pool for every four entries received before 8:00 pm Central Daylight Time on Tuesday, June 10th. I will then have my daughters draw names at random, and post the winners on June 11th.
In the event that less than four people enter, my fragile ego will be crushed and I will take a spoon and eat the prize myself.
