I made the crispy carnitas that Mark posted last month and 2 changes I would make is to add a tbsp each of chili powder and cumin. Also, cooking them in the oven 3 hours made them somewhat dry, still tasty though. Next time, I'll cook them 2.25-2.5 hours so they'll be more tender. When I made them, I increased the chili powder and cumin to 1.5 tbsp each and I like more spice in foods. The family loved them. It was a great change to Taco Tuesdays in house.
Happy birthday, chica! I hope this day and year are everything you want them to be.
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"
