Yup. An ad.
I've actually found some pretty awesome and super simple recipes in advertisements for various goods. In this case, the ad was for Eden Organic. Spicy Rice and Beans Burritos looked fun and simple and it was all that and more. I have to admit, even though I used organic canned stuff I was still a little concerned about the quality in canned rice-n-beans.
Please, Eden Organic, accept my most sincere apology - I have not been this wrong in at least a week. After coaxing the mixture into my saucepan, I started to think it might not be too awful, though mixing it with the refritos made it a little less attractive. Per the quick-n-easy recipe, I assembled sliced avocado, sliced red bell pepper, salsa, tortillas, and romaine,
and then realized the easiest way to do things was just to assemble my own burrito and let Mister do the same. By the way, while attempting to eat the burritos, I also realized that in the future (and there will be a future), it would be better to cut the red peppers in half...very messy when combined with brown slop and ripe avocado.

This is not spinach. No matter how appealing Mister tried to make the Not Spinach he dropped on the floor while assembling his burrito, Angst wanted nothing to do with it... because he knows it's not spinach. Can't fool him. That's why it's still on the floor (well, no, not really - I picked it up after I took the picture).

- making peace with peas
- what difference can one vegan make?

Enough from me - I have to go send my sister my favorite chili recipe!
