Burrito Heaven

by jenna on March 19, 2010

Hey y’all!

Gosh, I am SO tired. I hardly slept at all last night…..I got home late as is and then it probably took me two solid hours to fall asleep…then I woke up at 6 am. Totally normal. A Green Monster was very necessary.

Its another absolutely perfect day here, weather-wise, and I’ve just been walking around with Kevin all morning…showing him the sights, sounds and TASTES of my little town. :) Lots of cookbook reading…

And then burrito eating!!!! We hit up this tiny hole in the wall for lunch and it was AMAZING.

That would be my vegetarian burrito. It actually didn’t have cheese on it either and I was unaware of that detail but it was delicious all the same. I destroyed it and inhaled half with a ton of salsa verde.

It might be time to go crash a hotel pool now. Muhahaha ;)

That burrito looks SOOOO amazing and the pix with you holding it up looks like Monica on Friends. Crash a Hotel Pool? Do people DO that? Like on hot road trips past Palm Springs,Vegas & other places? I’m guessing. (;)

There are few things as incredible as the head-sized burritos that can be found in California. That thing should have its own zip code. It looks insanely good!

I am so jealous of you. I LOVED Kevin on Top Chef. He, Eli, and Bryan were my favorites, so we could we please trade places right now? :) And Holy Crap, that is one huge burrito.

One more thing… I love your hair. It’s really adorable. I’m tempted to take a picture to my hair stylist and say “THAT’S what I meant.” She totally didn’t get it last time.

You had me at the horchata…. I used to drink it almost every day when I lived in Spain as a kid. It tastes like happiness to me :-)
