I didn’t plan on cooking meals that involve shredded meat two nights in a row. Really, I didn’t. Maybe it was the innards of my soul cavity reaching out to my subconscious through the vessels and the lining of the euphoric parcel of my heart petals, whispering glorious cravings of the exquisite and delicate nature […]
