Mesh Cafe Nov 8, 2016


From Captain Lynne Kurzweil:

Near the close of Election Day, twenty two guests were welcomed into the MESH Cafe at Shomrei.

Chefs tonight were Carolyn Lack and Barbara Lesser. The meal began with a tossed salad and toasted baguette with butter. Main course was Orli’s Butternut Squash Vegetarian Chili, recipe courtesy of Carolyn’s newly wed granddaughter, Orli Nativ. The hearty chili was served with tortilla chips and sour cream.


Our STOM teens baked homemade peanut butter chocolate chip cookies, served with an apple for dessert. STOM will be contributing to the MESH meal on a monthly basis.

Carolyn did an informal survey and found that 64% of our guests had exercised their constitutional right to vote.
