Hey, IFA readers. Got a sec?
Ok. This is kind of difficult for me. Remember when I said this? Well, I’m just not sure I feel the same way anymore. I’ve been going out a lot more lately and trying some new things and, well, I just feel like I’m in a different place than I was then.
I guess it started a few months ago when I had the pappas arrugas at Jaleo. The ones with the mojo verde? Well, that mojo was really something. I know, I know. I was surprised, too. I had spent my whole life avoiding cilantro and here I was scraping the bowl clean.
I thought that’d be end of it, I really did. But it wasn’t.
Today I went to the burrito cart. Yeah, that one. And, sitting in an inconspicous squeeze bottle, there it was: some new homemade green concoction John’s been experimenting with. Curious, I tasted some. Then I tasted some more. Then I couldn’t stop. I didn’t even try. When I asked John what this new and fantastic sauce was made of…well, don’t make me say it.
I don’t know. I mean, people change right? Look, I’m not sure what all this means just yet but I thought I should come clean now before things go any further.
