Laos…

Friday, October 18 –

Guys… I did it again. I swear we had this dinner… I just never posted it. *sigh*photo (1)

We had WingWoman and LightsOn over for this. LightsOn and I both made chicken dishes. They were delicious and we stuffed ourselves silly.

Proof is in the photo!

My next dinner is Latvia and I plan on cooking it on Sunday. I will try my best to post asap after so that I can tell you all the great stories…
