If you were still not quite certain what to barbeque for your friends for your Independence Day cookout, the New York Times
would like you to consider some dishes from predominantly Muslim countries.
In her June 29th story titled “Burgers without Borders,” Julia Moskin recommends Syrian Beef Kebabs, Pakistani Seekh Kebabs or Turkish Adana Kebabs.
To each his own, I suppose. But it seems to me that Independence Day is the time for good old-fashioned American food.
Here’s my menu: hot dogs, potato salad, corn on the cob, lemonade and, of course, the Independence Day Bombe.
I’ll match mine against Moskin’s any day.
