After stuffing myself with ice cream in June, I turned the Great Food Search toward a more healthy highway of food—salads. Some people look down on salads as that green stuff they have to chomp through before they can really eat something, but the dishes I am about to introduce to you are more than a mouthful—this is FOOD!

When I was a kid, something I could always count on during the summer was an excursion “out to the country” to pick produce. Peaches, strawberries, corn, and black-eyed peas were readily available at you-pick farms scattered throughout the rural areas just outside Fresno.

In summer, thoughts turn to ice cream, and the Great Food Search has industriously worked its way through ice cream shop after ice cream shop, just to let you know what’s out there. Here are some of the usual suspects…and a few of the unusual ones.

Sure, I’d had sushi, before…I thought. At some Asian buffets, I’d had the California Roll, which is as close to real sushi as a fast-food burger is to a filet mignon. My immersion into Sushiland began when my wife texted about a new place in Sanger, Casa Oinari.

Any way you spell it, it’s serious eating. Best known in the Middle East and Armenia, variants of this grilled meat dish range from Africa to China, with or without skewers.

Valentine’s Day is almost here, and there are a lot of wonderful local places where you can shop for that special Valentine’s Day gift. We chatted with some of the local shops to see what they had to offer. Some of the items needed to be ordered way ahead of time so for those make a note for next year, but there are many other wonderful things you still have time to go purchase for that special Valentine!

We sat down to chat with Tammy Wolfe, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Sanger District Chamber of Commerce, about one of those events, the Blossom Trail Bus Tour put on by the Sanger Chamber of Commerce.

Fresno Bully Rescue: Pinta

IN THE December 15 ISSUE

FROM THE 2018 Articles,
andAnimal Rescue Adventures
SECTIONS

by Terese Shaw


Pinta, a classic American Pitbull Terrier and fawn beauty, first came to Fresno Bully Rescue when a local rescue unfortunately had to close its doors. We quickly learned that Pinta was exceptionally big- and small-dog friendly, and that she had an intense love of tennis balls. This rowdy love of tennis balls worked in her favor when she became the focus of trainer Stephanie Meadows’ attention.

Twice upon a time, there was a restaurant called Sanger’s Shawarma Express. The first time, it was convenient, fast-food, Mediterranean food. Two years ago, George and Stella took it over, and things changed.
