What prompted me to write this blog were some letters my grandmother showed me written by relatives in Norway and Sweden during the war. They fought for the Germans against Bolshevism. Their blood runs in my veins and I feel their pain over their defeat.
In Mexico, the flan really came into its own. You can use a special pan known as a bain marie to make flan if you wish. This pan has an area to pour the custard mixture into and an outer pan that will hold the water bath. A bain marie lets you make flan using both an oven or a stove. If you do not have one, you can also use glass or porcelain dishes for flan. As long as they can be baked while sitting in a water bath, you will end up with a great flan.

She stood up to the questions and doubts that my parents, poor and far from their families, would be able to manage a child so early in their marriage and youth. While the marriage did fail two more children and seven years later, my mother raised me and my brothers with strength and conviction, fighting against many odds.
Now you know about Autumn in New England. Book your tickets at once. Bring the family; the more the merrier. And, remember, bring all your credit cards and instruments of credit. Keep in mind at all times we need quirky festivals the money.
For all the gods here, worshippers would bring offerings of flowers, oranges, light joss sticks or incense for the gods, leaving the courtyard area smelling sweet and smoky.
There you have it, the beginnings of the Inside Out Project. I’m actively working on this project and will be adding a project page and it’s own blog postings as I proceed forward. Wish me luck because if I can learn how to unlock this new level of potential then so can you. What an interesting world that will be.
