Italian sweet sausage (large crumbles browned out of the casing), multi colored bell peppers (yellow, orange, red and green), onions, fresh garlic and canned whole peeled tomatoes and seasoning) served with ciabatta rolls. And a mixed salad (red & green butter lettuce, spring mix wild baby field greens, shredded red & green cabbage, grated carrot, sliced mushroom cap, alfalfa sprouts, vine tomato, roasted sliced almonds, McCormick Perfect Pinch and black olives) dressed with Good Seasons Basil vinaigrette.

  • Oven Baked Saffron Rice
  • Cucumbers in Mint Yogurt Dressing
  • Mediterranean Lentil Salad
  • Homemade Sourdough Bread
  • Three kinds of homemade Sorbet: Blood Orange, Lemon Mint, and Lime Basil
  • Assorted Cheeses and Fruits
  • Homemade Gewurztraminer and Tempranillo wines

Since the guys from India aren't familiar with American flavors, I thought I would try to make some dishes that include ingredients you might find in Indian cuisine, but in a different context. One of the fellows apparently remarked to someone else that he thought American food was bland. I'm working to erase that notion.

I've been cooking since yesterday morning.
WOW Steve!! That sounds so well thought out and just fantastic! You will certainly do us all proud with how exciting American cooking can be. Shine on!!

Yet another beautiful plate, MsM .

My kitchen is cleaned and closed. Open again March 29th.
Aloha !

With all the HUGE heads of cabbage on sale this week.. I picked one up and made two pans of golumpki for dinner. Steamed carrot coins and steamed sugar peas on the side and some nice crusty rye bread.
