National Burrito Day Shortbread



I prefer Purritos.

Speaking of bread, I took a break from my typical diet of space-based sci-fi and positively ate up Sourdough: A Novel​​ ​over the last few days. I don't recommend books lightly, because I know how unlikely I am to ever get around to the recommendations of others. Sourdough, however, rises to the occasion and I think it's the kind of read that a lot of gerbils would enjoy. Check it out if you are interested in what I suspect will be an enjoyable change of flavor from your regular order.
