    I just made a mole sauce! I was thinking chicken tacos. I love to let my sauce sit for a few days to really intensify the flavor, so not eating it tonight, so sad! Looks great!

    Oh my goodness! I’m in taco heaven Cara. It’s been ages (well a couple of weeks, but that’s ages for me) since we’ve had guac. That’s reason alone to celebrate Taco Day!
