Making Green Juice with My Omega J8006 Juicer
When I lived in Chicago, my apartment was just down the street from the cutest little juice shop. They offered wheat grass shots, a selection of cold pressed bottles, and freshly juiced specialty drinks. It was here that my deep affinity for wheat grass and green juice came to be.

And, The Pouf.

How do we nominate this person for an award? Continue reading “Hogwarts and Hashbrowns: A Wizardly Drag Brunch”
