Trying to plan Anand's birthday party lunch. There will be pizza; there will be cake. I sort of feel like people will be disappointed if I don't make Sri Lankan food, but I actually do like cooking other things, and I am tempted to go Italian for this lunch spread, since it goes with the pizza. A nice soup, an interesting salad, some sort of antipasto platter, cheeses, maybe a chicken dish. Yes? Or should I stick to the curries?
