Pinical Recovery

Another short period unfortunately. My fiance is in the military so we move around a lot. I loved this job, I cooked for 18 people. I was able to cook what I wanted, I did all the shopping, and taught begging cooking classes so once the addicts left they had some basic life skills. Was a very fullfilling job.
