A Burrito Kind of Night

Ryan and I just finished a really good, relaxing meal of burritos and salad. I made a black bean burrito with caramelized onions and seasoned it with chili powder, cumin and hot sauce. Ryan only had white burritos (I checked—no trans fat or lard though in the ingredient list) and I stuffed mine with salsa, the black bean mixture and a little bit of FYH mozzarella cheese. After folding it all together I put it back on the heat to grill the whole thing. Served with more salsa and homemade guacamole. YUM! I made a big salad for the both of us with greens, carrots, grape tomatoes and red bell pepper. I also had a glass of red wine while cooking.


After dinner I of course needed something sweet so I tried one of the vanilla/chocolate soy puddings I found at the health food store today (brand is ZenSoy I believe? They have a panda bear on them)…..oh man…these puddings are absolutely amazing!!!!! Seriously–I want to go out and buy more tomorrow! They remind me of the jello pudding cups I ate when I was a kid. No strange tastes—just pure chocolate and vanilla goodness.


It’s going to be an early night tonight. Both Ryan and I have headaches from the pollen (didn’t help that we ate our burritos on the back porch with the pollen covered furniture).

See you in the morning!

    Hope you enjoy your break…..you deserve it!

    What type of salad dressing is that? It looks good. I find dark balsamic too vinegary.

    I really don’t know what kind of dressing it is. Something totally random I found in Ryan’s fridge. its a balsamic vinigrette, that I know! I usually like Annie’s dressings the best (my favorite is Annie’s Woodstock dressing) or tahini based dressing.

    I loosely followed this recipe: http://vegandad.blogspot.com/. It worked out great but my burritos are always way messier than the picture. I can never figure out how to fold them just right. I didn’t measure the spices or anything..just a pinch here and there—I added salt and hot sauce to the bean mixture! It turned out really good and I will def. make it again!

    Great burritos! Too bad they were white flour. =( But we’re all allowed indulgences, hehe. =)

    I always wanted to know how those pudding cups were but didn’t want to waste the money. Reading they actually taste like the real deal makes me want to give them a try.
