Frittata

Today someone I love very much challenged me to make a new dish. I'd been talking about making brunch, and how much I'd been craving an omelet. I hadn't made one in a while as I was rationing my eggs, and was missing some of my favorite ingredients. In this...

Rolls of toilet paper left: 6 Rolls of toilet paper on any shelf in any store: 0 I’m really getting exhausted with interviewing DevOps people. For those that have only been the interviewee and found the process tiring, being the interviewer is no easy task either especially when you...
