Mango Lassi

I can not remember the first time we bought the kids mango lassies at a restaurant. I think they were little and we were heading home from vacation. Everyone was tired and hungry and Allan decided to treat us to an Indian restaurant. The three (at the time) children loved Indian food, but because they were all so tired, they were only interested in the mango lassies Allan ordered for them.

The first time Andrea made this recipe, a few years later, she did not realize that she needed to peel the mangoes before blending. It was not the best lassi she has ever made, but it is the most remembered.

Since she first copied this recipe in Sept 2012, Andrea has experimented and changed it slightly depending on what ingredients we had and what flavor she wanted. This however, is still her favorite combination.

Saffron Rolls

Whenever we go to Calumet, Michigan, Daddy stops to buy us saffron bread or saffron rolls.  Often he buys extra and brings some home to freeze until Easter.  My rolls are not quite as pretty as the ones he buys, but they sure taste great!

Very good, light drink. Great if you do not want a strong alcohol taste. Very rich.
