Pig Heaven

This week I’ve scheduled a hangover (and food coma) for Thursday…

Seriously, I have to make sure my schedule is clear the day AFTER I return from a bona fide, nose-to-tail pork fiesta in Tijuana. There isn’t much I wouldn’t do for my beloved pork, but I’m especially thrilled that my guide to this south-of-the-border PIG HEAVEN will be the awesome Bill Esparza (aka StreetGourmetLA).
