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!
