Here's why I love Presidents day: you forget about it. There's no anticipation and then suddenly you realize, "Hey! I have Monday off!" Unless you are my 3 year old ex-neighbor, Aida. Last year she invited us over for breakfast to celebrate and we each got to wear a different president's hat. We all looked dashing in our three corner GW hats and Honest Abe top hats. I believe her mom got to wear a Martha Washington bonnet. So this post is for you Aida. If you were here I would make you this breakfast on President's Day.
And just down the street from Aida is today's guest chef, Marianne Viray. That's right, of panini fame. She is my cooking kindred spirit. Marianne and her husband James have traveled all over the world and today she is going to share one of her favorite international food finds.
