Life update - We've moved out of San Diego and are staying with my dad's mother in Fort Mohave, Arizona until I can secure my first job.
It's a quiet little neighborhood near a quiet little town in the desert, so it's great for old folks like grandma. For me it's almost TOO quiet after living near the freeway for a year, and the lack of greenery is a tad depressing. But the house is big and beautiful and it's always good living with family.
Grandma's famous for her cooking and hospitality (she had to raise 5 kids, after all), but I wanted to show her a recipe of my own. I'm sharing it here for anyone interested:
