I left you on Monday, after a stroll through Houston and a delicious small pate meal, with us heading out in the night, adventurers in search of a lost treasure.
wanted needed ice cream.

If you’ve never tried liquid nitrogen ice cream, I forgive you but please, fix that situation immediately.
Tell me, have you had liquid nitrogen ice cream? What did you think?
