sara went to great lengths to make sure we were fed well in des moines. we had chinese and mexican and even a calorie laden breakfast to make me feel right at home. then, feeling a bit over confident she played the indian food card. now i know most of my family are big fans and the dish she cooked (marsala chicken) wasn't the worst thai i have eaten, but i have to say, food from india is not my cup of tea. i am not particularly fond of curry and i like to eat cows and pigs. here are a few pics of chef sara's offerings. thanks sara, you're a great cook and you and ryan were wonderful hosts.
