Aleks: "Can we have American food for dinner tonight?"
Me: "What would you like?"
Italian food is fantastic. It is fresh. It is simple. It is full of flavor, bbbuuuutttut . . . when living in California you are exposed to such diversity of cuisine. We could not help missing some different flavors and styles of cuisine. And, let's face it, Mexican food is a staple of the California lifestyle. And, Mexico is part of North America, so technically it is American food. And mama misses her margaritas - as in the drink, not the pizza.
