It’s been another busy week here. Work has kept me on my toes and I came down with a nasty fever thing in the middle of the week. Not sure what it was but a lot of extra sleep seemed to take it away. It did leave me with some extra free time to brainstorm ideas for the blog and to read some of the other great blog feeds I subscribe too. You might want to check these out on a lazy Sunday.
7th Mediterranean Cooking Event - Tobias Cooks: Algeria. A friend and fellow blogger has entered several dishes in this contest.

She’s registered for; Crevettes Tipazienne, Tajine de Saurel, Aïn-El-Turck chicken, and Loubia bel dersa
Chronicles of Nezha – Part 2 – Life in Marrakesh – I pretty much bookmarked every post this week but when I read this one I knew it was the one that you needed to read too. If you really want a look at Marrakech, not the glitzy, glamour of Hollywood ala Morocco, but part of the real Marrakech – read this.
My Lunch at Paula Wolfert’s House – The Colors of Indian Cooking: Just the pictures alone will have you drooling. These two ladies are just fantastic.

Local vs Organic Produce – Which is Better? Simple Organic: I’m of the frame of mind that local, organic produce is best, followed by local, and lastly transported organic. This article might clear some cobwebs on the issue.
Aprons for Beda – Not a blog but a good cause. We have some very good friends who have adopted children from Ethiopia through their church and KVI. I am a huge advocate for international adoption to loving homes and know how huge the cost can be. Please consider purchasing one of these super cute, handmade aprons for a good cause.
Have a great week! And I love hearing from you – don’t be afraid to drop a comment or two!
