What does it even mean? Is it the sound you make when chewing? I have no idea, but I say it just because everyone else. It sounds silly and cool enough. It’s always a good idea to blindly and ignorantly follow fads, right?

THIS is the very definition of a weeknight meal. So freakin’ fast and delicious. I devoured it.

I’m ALL about the salad wraps. Low carb and just as satisfying. I have a billion recipes for salad wraps I want to try on my Pinterest. Along with cinnamon buns. OMG I love cinnamon buns so much.
