Culinary Dictionary: Letter O
I have been doing some domestic improvements both at home and on the blog. Right here, I added more categories and tags to the recipes. At home, John and I have had workers for the past three days repainting the exterior of the house. We went for a deep brownish-green which I think would look lovely with the red geraniums I am planning to plant. Things are starting to look a little cleaner, a little prettier, a little at a time.
Letter O is ready. All Terminology Thursdays are now grouped under the Culinary Dictionary category and easier to locate. I hope you find the choice of words tonight interesting.
