    This morning, I am doing the prep work on an oxtail stew: I pan fry the fatty bones meat first before chucking it into the pot to cook fora couple of hours. And it smells amazing. Almost sweet.

On Monday at 2:15, after your little break, say “Grrr” or equivalent when you detect that the darned […]
