With the cooler weather coming on, many of us enjoy the wonderful past time of cooking. So, this week will be Cooking Week here at OPOD. We start with this wonderful picture from the Middle East of a woman cooking outdoor over a fire made from thorns. I have a feeling that whatever is in the pot is delicious. I love ethnic food . . . I love the spices and subtle flavors of various cultures. I hope you all will share some of your favorite cooking specialites.
