Okay, so there we were sitting at the table last night and he’s telling me about shtoup (soup). No real recipe, just a very specific taste, consistency, and texture. That would have been the smart thing to do. I’m not that smart; and, I like a good challenge. So, after a busy morning at work, a busier afternoon cleaning the kitchen, and a few hours spent working on blog stuff, I got down and dirty. It was just me, a newly cleaned kitchen, and a chicken. Actually, it was just parts of a chicken. Needless to say, my kitchen is no longer clean. It’s a shame.

I feel the same way about websites, cookbooks, and just about any written material. I want it to look attractive and inviting
