When I became a librarian, I had no idea that one day I would help wrangle a lost chicken in a library parking-lot. 🐔

Turkey chili never disappoints, but the spoon bread was less satisfying than plain old cornbread. 🍲 Still, it’s always fun to try a new recipe.
Minor meltdown tonight after three nights with less than 7 hours of sleep each.
OK, I got the hint, brainmeats.
