Some days the tears need to flow. Some days there is no worldy reason for tears, but they surface nevertheless. A straw breaks the camel’s back, the Hoover Dam flood gates open, fluids pour out of your face and for the next three days, you eyes are doomed to leak at first earshot or sight of anything that illicit any type of emotion whatsoever. What. so. ever!
You wake up feeling under the weather with a sore throat and your bushy-tailed boyfriend makes you hot tea with honey and the tears begin a-flowing.
How about this one: You bake a batch of muffins and they stick to the muffin pan in spite of your pre-oiling methods. Cry, cry, cry, cry, cry. It’s not cry-worthy, but that doesn’t mean you don’t cry. Or this one: the article you wrote for a local publication was well-received, so you “ohthankgod” and sob at the same time.
It’s not your fault. Your eyes have sprung a leak and you’re just going to have to wait this one out for 2 more days. Someone call the maintenance crew! Keep the news turned off, and by golly, don’t put any mascara on until it’s fixed!
There are tears of joy, frustration, desperation. There are, without a doubt, cries that make no sense at all. And that’s the beauty of life. It doesn’t have to make a lick of sense because you’re human and it feels good to get carried away.
This Carnitas Taco Pizza is worthy of a cry. With shredded pork, salsa, corn, and fresh cilantro – you have all the ingredients of a delicious taco right on top of your pizza. Cry. For the pizza crust, I used Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Flour, but you can use your preferred pizza dough recipe. You can also try my recipe for Cauliflower Pizza Crust. Give yourself something to build on and you’ll be crying in no time. Build. Cry. Eat.
For the carnitas, I used my Carnitas Tacos recipe. Basically, you put a hunk o’ pork roast in the crock pot with one can of beer, some spices a couple of limes worth of lime juice and cook it all day on low. Then shred the meat and eat your fill of tacos or taco pizza! I used salsa for the pizza sauce (which you can find on the same recipe as the Carnitas Tacos), and you can also use my Chili Verde Salsa recipe if you like green salsa. SHABAM!
