"I'll write the story, you'll be my inspiration, just like two actors in a play....
...Let's pretend, we're in another world, living a fantasy, just another boy and girl.............falling in love"

    --Al Jarreau (from the song, "Let's Pretend")


When I first saw the photo shoot of the Royal Mansour Hotel in Marrakech, Morocco on their website, it vaulted to the top of my Wanderlusting list of
"dream destinations to take my dream girl, after I procure my dream finances" , just in case all that lightning strikes at once {chucking while typing}


Tempting Tagines!!!

What is a Tajine? A tajine, or tagine is a Berber dish from North Africa, that is named after the special earthenware pot in which it is cooked.  The traditional tajine pot is formed entirely of a heavy clay, which is sometimes painted or glazed. Tajines in Moroccan cuisine are slow-cooked stews braised at low temperatures, resulting in tender meat with aromatic vegetables and sauce.

It is common here in the USA to prepare "semi-authentic" tajine recipes in covered skillets or a tall pot, though the 'high ceiling' of the authentic tajine cookware top allows for better heat distribution during the 'slow cook'...also makes for a cool dinner presentation

I never try to justify what my mind is, my mind has a mind of its own.

But I kinda crack myself up sometimes as I wonder am I being hypocritical, as  I perceive myself as this eco-friendly, modest living, recycle everything, Mr. GreenPeace, "Save-the-Wales" kinda dude, who at the same time, loves the sit in the "Lap of Luxury"

Hmmmm, come to think of it, doesn't make me hypocritical, just "well balanced" :)
