They are extremely creative with their curries. Me, I’m no cook and lucky to have Loretta.
Chilli cook-off gatherings are pretty popular here in the Fall, in the USA. I blogged on one here that we attended in October. January is a pretty desolate month, the temperatures plummet, the holidays are done and dusted, the parties … Continue reading Curry Cook-Off!
