Some people just get a BFF, but you’re lucky enough to have BCF (Best Couple Friends). There’s no such thing as a “third wheel” when you’re hanging with your Best Couple Friends.

As for pickled veggies I haven’t made myself; pickled onions have turned many a salad from mediocre to magnificent, and from a health perspective, I’ll take all the probiotics I can get. As soon as I saw this DIY Fermentation Kit come into the UncommonGoods assortment, I had to try it for myself.
