Since most of my immediate family lived in a small village close to us, we prepared meals for ten to fifteen people. However, the recipes I am including here are meant for four to six people.

Sorry it’s been nearly a damn month since my last update. .. I have had a few crazy things going on in the personal life lately, as well as a move and lack of internet connection, blah, blah, excuse, excuse. Sorry.

The last thing that I am going to do is keep my mouth shut. People have been doing it for too long, isn’t that what I always see on this sight, question everything, especially when it comes to Bush and the terrible United States of America.

Phase 1 – Design Just like an artist, the sandal designer starts with an idea. Do they want to make a dressy sandal, a comfortable sandal, or a minimalist sandal?
