Cooking

And all that other good stuff

The last several weeks have been chaotic.  I’ve written several blog posts in my head, but in reality I just couldn’t do it.  There’s just been TOO much happening…… Making plans and preparations to move to the other side of the earth only to have everything change, organizing a temporary move in anticipation of a […]
