Mesh Cafe Dec 27, 2016

MESH 2016 dec 27From Captain Sarah Kravits:

On a fairly balmy (for December) evening this past Tuesday, Shomrei hosted 24 MESH guests while also housing IHN families for the week. Chef Aileen Grossberg cooked up a double batch of dinner to serve both groups, starting with a warming minestrone with parmesan and fusilli, then a mixed green salad, followed by a main course of salmon with brown sugar glaze accompanied by roasted carrots, peppers, and purple onions along with rolls. A Hanukkah treat of latkes with applesauce and sour cream rounded out the meal, which ended with a dessert of tuxedo chocolate mousse cake with fruit. Guests appreciated the Hanukkah blessings and menorah lighting and greatly enjoyed the meal. There was plenty, and some leftovers went home with our guests.

Aileen was ably assisted in and out of the kitchen by Arden Epstein, Susan Rosenblatt, and Steve Hoviss, Melanie Grossberg, myself, and Debra Caplan (Debra also helped serve the IHN guests downstairs). Helpful teens were Josephine, Louis, Ivana, and Sara. MESH staffers Adrienne and Joe made sure everything ran like clockwork. Thanks all for helping us have a great night at the MESH Cafe!

Chag sameach!
