How Hot Can You Go?

Happy Sunday!

This morning I had the pleasure of meeting the lovely Jessica, a blog reader, at church! Jessica moved here from New York a few years ago and I got the pleasure of introducing her to her first contemporary church service. She said all the electric guitar playing was a little different than the Catholic masses she grew up, with but I think she liked it and she is going to join me for a bible study starting in a few weeks! 🙂 I LOVE Christian jam bands!

Before church I ate a toasted Ezekiel muffin with cinnamon raisin peanut butter and a peach


And lunch was Tijuana Flats!!! I ADORE this place because I am a hot sauce freak and they have the best hot bar in town…


Naturally, I collected about six of the hottest hot sauces—


And ordered a veggie whole wheat “power light” burrito (reduced fat cheese and no sour cream). I always order the regular size when I go here and always leave still hungry, so today I ordered the next size up–the “Tijuana size” and it was HUGE


I didn’t eat the chips and I totally tore about my burrito and just ate the filling because one bite and it fell apart all over my plate anyways!


Nothing like Mexican food on a Sunday morning! SO good….and now I am SO full!!!

Afternoon plans include being a bum and reading and then going to a family party later this afternoon.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Sunday so far!

    I am a hot sauce and spicy food FREAK…there is no such thing as “too hot” for me, at least not that I’ve found. That burrito looks mighty yum to me 🙂

    Glad you had a great time! I used to go to a Lifeteen Mass at my church. They had a drum set, guitars, funky singers and all! So much fun 🙂 That burrito with hot sauce looks amazing! If you’re ever in Dunedin, be sure to try “Casa Tina”– best mexican food around!! Here is their website. I always get the Tostada Vagabunda. Kind of a funny name but it tastes amazing!

    Mmmm, I love burritos and hot sauce! I like going to chipotle and getting the burrito bowl with black beans and then covering it in 3 different kinds of salsa.

    Wow, that burrito looks amazing! My boyfriend Brian and I agree that even when we’re extremely undecided about what to eat for lunch or dinner, burritos ALWAYS sound good – even on Sunday mornings. 🙂

    I hope you have a great afternoon!

    Glad to hear you enjoyed your church service. It’s always nice just to switch things up and get a little something more out of the normal Sunday mass.

    Just a fun spot to have lunch! Sounds delicious!

    Amen to a good contemporary church service. Mike and I finally settled on a great church downtown. The music is awesome and people are great. I even got to take communion today because they had special gluten free wafers! I haven’t taken communion in 2 1/2 years! It was AWESOME!

    I LOVE hot sauce. My hubby and I have 34 different varieties in our fridge right now! lol! Our favorite post Mass meal is anything in a burrito. We have a place called Lime that we always go to. YUMMERS! Sounds like a great day.

    That burrito looks delicious. Mexican isn’t super popular here, and it tends to be cheese/sour cream covered and things like nachos! I like the flavours of Mexican but it’d be nicer to see something ‘fresher’!

    Oh your food always looks so YUM! I really miss mexican food, so hard to get here though I do make it in some fashion weekly. Also don’t have a lot of choice on the yummy organic and natural foods you eat…no oikos though sometimes I can find fage…no ezekiel thins….no arnolds thins…you get the idea. Makes me salivate when I see some of your concoctions!!!
    Have a great sunday –

    I love TJ Flats! Can’t beat a hot sauce bar, but I admit I’m not healthy when I go there, since I always get the chicken flautas, because I love playing with my food! haha. But I only go ocassionally for a splurge, so I don’t worry about it too much! 🙂
