Memorial Day… a day of Thanks and Reflection

As you light up your grills this Memorial Day, please be
mindful of the reason we celebrate this day – to honor and thank the men and
women who have given their lives to ensure America’s freedom.


With that in mind, here are a few of The Armenian Kitchen’s
favorite Armenian-American side dishes to celebrate this, or any summertime
occasion, without heating up the kitchen.


And don’t forget the watermelon!
