Stuffed Shells
スタッフドシェル

I was thinking about making something totally different. But that didn’t happen for so many reasons, and it ended up like this. But I didn’t complain. This is what they looked like when the shells were stuffed. Can you tell what was inside? Well, the filling was a mixture of different things, but one of […]
