Family

Enjoyed another Meatless Monday meal in my study. This was a loaded burrito bowl with homemade tortillas. Once a month at Old Ironsides for $5 you can get some lovingly made dishes from the lovely kids of Burly Beverages.

The Head/Baker household taught me how simple yet complex the meaning of family can be by gifting me a screening of The Fate of The Furious in their backyard2
