Shrimp over Rotini with Capers and Raisins

 Seriously now. What's better than a 50 best animal photos list? Nothing. Wow. Cute.

Ok probably... The Indobox playing an all LCD Soundsystem set, that sounds.... awesome.

Ok maybeeee shrimp. With pasta. Add raisins and capers. Green beans. Salty, slightly acidic, yet smooth, sweet, and delicious.

Omg. What if you had all three?

You're welcome. I love you. 

 Soundtrack: The Indobox covers LCD Soundsystem.. and it rocks.
