Dinner tonight was broiled salmon with honey mustard glaze and potatoes au gratin.
Yes, I have been to America three times. First to New York City, (as a tourist), and then twice to Tucson (as a guest).
I didn't encounter any Indian food!
But then I wasn't looking for it. (We are awash with it here in Britain as I am sure you know.) I wanted to encounter "American" food. (With all the cultural influences that implies.)
Unfortunately, my hostess is not a foodie (but is a genuinely lovely person and a very good friend) , so I confined myself to her tastes. I did find it fascinating wandering around her local supermarket! (I have never seen so much variety in coffee - including blending your own!) On the other hand, the cheese and meat/poultry sections.... well.... er... shocking is all I can say.
