The buffet and refrigerator are stocked with tea, coffee, creamer, non-dairy milk and other miscellaneous things. We have amazing pancakes, sometimes with chocolate chips. We also have organic eggs, sometimes right from the local farm. We also have many fruits, some in season from the farmers’ market or mom’s garden. Did I mention pancakes?


We love to make kitchery! This is an easily digestible “casserole” of mung beans and basmati rice, flavored with Indian spices, garlic and shredded coconut. If you would like to try some, just let us know.
