Gold may shine, but the true shine is in your heart! Keep it shining! 😉 Welcome our new friends from the US and South Korea 😉
May be only one dish for this weekend would be enough! Hmm! 💡
It came to us by total co-incidence. Donna and I stopped by a capturing rental big red ad. while heading to Moraga. It looked very fancy apartment complex, which made us curious.
Of course next to the office there was the special parking area for guests or prospective tenants. The office was closed but there were plenty of flyers and printed materials out there.
I grabbed few so did Donna, and we moved on. When I got to my office, checking on the papers that I had, I found one very interesting newsletter that talked about few residential topics, but in addition to that, there was a great recipe. I looked very appealing. I decided to try it for this weekend. Donna patted my shoulder laughing: “Why don’t you share it with our friends?”
