Serrano Chili BBQed Pork with Kale and Cabbage

I’ve got a confession.
I’m a germ-a-phobe.
I am completely obsessed with not getting sick. I absolutely hate cash in an unnatural way. I never carry cash if I have anything to do with it. If you ask me three things I can’t live without on a daily baises I would say; ice water, sun block and my Am Ex.
A few weeks ago I was in Vegas partying it up with some friends and went into a store where they didn’t except Am Ex. Because it was Vegas, I did have a little cash for slot machines, tipping valets, etc.
As I handed a ten dollar bill to the cashier in exchange for a gift for my boyfriend I had to complain out loud about how much I hate cash and how dirty, covered in germs it is. To which the cashier replied
“Oh yeah, especially in this town! These bills have probably been in a strippers thong”
Seriously! That thought never, ever crossed my mind and now I am even more grossed out by the thought of cash than I was before.
Using precooked carnitas this makes the easiest healthy stir fry.image
