4th Annual Curry Cook-Off

A family affair – A guest post by my Husband

This is a fun post.  Some of you who are my regular readers, may remember that we started a tradition last year by introducing a curry cook-off as a way of getting friends together in the depths of winter.  Well, we hosted it again this year and my husband Bert, agreed to do a guest post for my blog.   Here’s the post in his words.

They are extremely creative with their curries. Me, I’m no cook and lucky to have Loretta.
