The Mitsitam Cafe Cookbook. I was intrigued, so I went to the library to get a copy. This cookbook not only has recipes and beautiful food photos, it's also full of Native American history, cool vintage photos, and info on ingredients that have been a part of the diet of various tribes for centuries. It's a fun read and I've been inspired to make quite a few of their recipes ~ that makes this book a real winner in my opinion. I'll go so far as to say it's my new favorite cookbook! I highly recommend either checking out a copy from your library (or getting a copy of your own), it's that good. If I ever get back to Washington, DC, I definitely plan on stopping by the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian and heading over to the Mitsitam Native Foods Cafe for a meal!
I've always loved Panda Express Chow Mein, but haven't had it in awhile. When I saw this recipe for a 'copycat' version online, I decided to give it a try. So glad that I did!! I used dried udon noodles since I couldn't find the ones called for in the recipe and it worked out just fine. We all LOVED it!! My guys have asked for it again and again. So if you have a hankerin' for some really quick and tasty Chinese restaurant 'copycat' food, give this one a try, it's super yummy and our family approved. :)
