Lewis immediately made plans to enroll in that program, once he completes six months in rehabilitation and recovery.

Community cookbooks usually have their share of recipes you'll want to shy away from because of inexact amounts of ingredients and imprecise directions, but they're also likely to be chock-full of dishes you'll want to prepare again and again. For endearing comfort food and a glimpse at how real people really eat, it's worth searching out a community cookbook.
