In the Dark

Quick what’s your favourite food trend?  Farm-to-table and locally sourced?  Everything adorned with a fried egg?  Food manipulated to look like other food aka molecular get over yourself gastronomy?  Fancy comfort food?  Bacon chocolate and bacon wrapped veggies and basically bacon everywhere?  Yeah, me too.

He’s the Taco to my Fish (ew gross)

Fair warning: there’s gonna be a lot of bragging rights in this post. Also: I realize I do a lot of bragging as it is but you know what, live with it. So we’ve established that I am not outdoorsy. I do not sleep in tents. I don’t crouch in dirt to pee unless I’m(…)
