My memory of ‘Thriller’avatar

Adventures with menudoavatar

with 4 comments

I cooked and ate menudo – the traditional Mexican soup made with tripe –  for the first time on Sunday! Okay, I’m bending the truth a little bit – but there’s a story behind my fib, I swear. I woke up at 7 a.m. on Sunday morning to find my darling roommate bouncing around the house, [...]

El Maestro struts his stuffavatar
