Good point about the tea but hot tea is unseasonable for now. Somehow the
caffene addicts don't complain and the others just go for the water or
The cucumber salad is from Recipe from the book Imperial Mongolian Cooking
by Marc Cramer.
ISBN # 0-7818-0999-1 Hippocrene Books, Inc. along with the Garlic Yogurt
With this menu we consulted someone who is not only in our cooks guild, but
quite well versed in Mongolian, Baroness Chagan.
Sometimes we fudge it a bit but by and large our recipes are documentable,
unlike some of our solties I have been known to do.....
Now you can see trouble
