Our 4th of July Menu

When you live in California, Mexican inspired food is as American as apple pie, and its ingredients feature in our diets on a daily basis.  This menu mixes these influences with more widely accepted American staples for a decadent, seasonal summer feast.

To Start

Skip the meat or add a side of guacamole, salsa, and chips or crudités if you have vegetarian guests

Main Course

The BA Burger Deluxe for meat eaters 
Substitute a turkey or veggie patty for those who don't eat red meat

Substitute Vegenaise and add avocado for a vegan option, or add mozzarella for vegetarian guests

Vegenaise could also work in this dish, or you could lighten it up with just cayenne and lime

Stick with the original recipe, or try the Mexican variation

For Dessert

To Drink

Fresh Strawberry Shakes for the teetotalers (or kids)

Watermelon Margaritas for the drinkers
