I really like curry and often. My husband not so much. We had some leftover pork chops that we grilled that he wanted no part of. I have been concentrating on my genealogy of late and not on my cooking friends. So, since I am shortly to be going back to a daytime position at… Read More Time for Curry
This is the before: As you can see it at least needs a facelift. Some paint would help. We decided to make it bigger and add some working windows. Now it’s like a clubhouse. Some people never grow up.
