Mariko's farewell BBQ party

 One of my host sisters, Mariko is leaving for Las Vegas to be a makeup artist. She is going to school there. I have known her since she was four so it is hard to believe she became a big girl like that. When I lived with her, she was only 4 or 5 years old. Every time I took her to a grocery store, she asked me. "Can you buy me the pink balloon?" I did a few times since I cannot say no to little cute girls.


 I was invited to their BBQ gathering in Santa Cruz and I bought this fruit tart. This is not just a regular fruit tart. This is a gluten free dessert. Her sister, Mikako and her husband, Brendan need gluten free food so I made this that way. I used almond meal and it was GOOOOOD!
I always feel like home when I visit them and they treat me like their eldest.

Wonder how old this picture is.
Good luck, Mariko. Be a great makeup artist!
