During the beginning our relationship, Mike was a fast food junkie.  I know, I know- I really shouldn’t be so harsh to him but sometimes the truth hurts!  I mean, why not eat fast food every day—it is cheap, easy, and delicious (well to some people.)  So when started dating, I slowly added home cooked meals to his day.  Eventually (when we moved in together) he ate less and less fast food.  However, there are still times he gets a hankering for one of his old favorites and this morning he wanted one thing—breakfast burritos from McDonald’s.

On a different note, I often sing show tunes to get my point across (I know that sounds cheesy but what do you expect from a musician!) This morning’s show tune, one of my favorite, was brought to me by Annie get your gun (CUE MUSIC!)

“Anything you can do I can do you better; I can do anything better than you.”

Can you see where this is going?

Well, at any rate; drum roll please!

Homemade breakfast burrito and hash browns!  Well egg white burrito in a whole-wheat tortilla accompanied by sweet potato hash.  Did I win?  I think I did!  The burrito also had peppers, onions, fresh cilantro, cheese, and topped with a little Tabasco.  Who needs McDonalds when you can have fresh cilantro in your burrito!
