Our meal will offer a sampling of dishes and beverages from many of the 8 countries we visited including: Gjetost cheese, Smorrebrod (mini open sandwiches), Borscht, Pirogies, Lanttulaatikko (Finnish rutabaga dish), German Apple Almond Cake and more! Of course we will also share a slide show to round out the evening! (Note: dairy, fish and meat selections will be on the menu).

MM3 Celebrate Day of the Bones with Green Chili Pork
Invalid Image Link

Joined by skeletons and flowers we will partake of good food recreated from restaurants I've visited. As we sip margaritas (inspired by a Chicago restaurant), I'll tell you about the restaurants that inspired the food. To begin, you can try Elote -- a warm corn appetizer (Sedona) and salsa with chips (Toledo). We will proceed to Green Chili Pork -- spicy but not on fire (Old Town San Diego). A variety of toppings for the pork lets you customize your meal.

This is the third and last day of the Festival de las Calaveras (bones) which happens on Oct. 31, Nov.1 and 2. This ancient Aztec celebration has become part of the Catholic tradition in Mexico. Now we can choose to celebrate it, too!
