After brunch I spent a couple quality hours in the kitchen, cooking away and getting dinners ready for the week. It’s afternoons like this one that reminds me how much I really love to cook! So often it’s rush, rush, rush during the weekdays, and I forget how much fun it can be to take my time, spread out and just cook. Know what I mean? Do you like cooking? I think it’s so relaxing. :)

Funnily, I didn’t cook dinner, rather, Ben and I hopped over to Chipotle! Hmmm, Homemade Chipotle Burrito Bowls last Sunday, real Chipotle Burrito Bowls this Sunday…am I sensing a pattern here!? 


Ben and I find ourselves in Sunday night dinner patterns a lot. We once went MONTHS getting this vegetable fried rice dish from a local Chinese restaurant every single Sunday evening. I can’t remember how/why that fizzled out…they were really good though…



At any rate, tonight Ben went in and got me my standard Chicken Burrito Bowl. Oh. Yum! I had to wait in the car – it’s getting coooooold out there!


We’ve got rice, black beans, chicken, pico de gallo, green salsa and my own touch of green Tabasco sauce. It just doesn’t taste the same without it!


My favorite part of burrito bowls are the pockets of unspoiled rice.


The big clumps of chewy rice flavored with hints of lime & cilantro are the best!!


For dessert I’m snacking on some chocolate covered almonds that Ben’s parents gave us for Valentine’s Day. They are to die for!


I need to go put this bag away before some major damage is done… 8O


Back to the Olympics! I didn’t think I’d be as into them as I am! Just waiting for that bobsledding to come on… ;) 



What are your must-have toppings for burritos?
