Is "butter" a carb?

17 November, 2014
Sumu and I have been rescheduling taco day for weeks. We had a grand plan to make eight different kinds of tacos, with a wild assortment of toppings, for all the people we knew. We invited friends, looked up taco recipes with abandon, and prepared our stomachs by eating as much avocado as possible.
