Today, Debbie, Candee, and I went to a great restaurant called Laila’s Kitchen. It specializes in Afghan-Persian food and was very tasty. Debbie and Candee each had the chicken and veggie kabob meal at the recommendation of one of the owners. It came with a small salad, tender chicken kabobs, vegetables, basmati rice and a […]
