I Caved

Yes! Meat is back and it's all because I swallowed my pride. Here are the gruesome details.
  • burrito (seasoned ground turkey, peppers, onions, spinach, black beans, low-fat cheese)
  • salad (lettuce, purple and yellow carrots, cucumbers, peppers)
  • salad dressing
  • strawberries
  • cranberry oatmeal cookies
As soon as I got it all out and had my little rant last night I decided that meat is more important to me than foolish pride. But, I'm ashamed to say that I took an unhealthy shortcut and used an ancient packet of taco seasoning that I found in the back of the cupboard. I know it's not THAT big of a deal but I really try to avoid cooking with processed/"chemicalized" stuff. Don't get me wrong, I eat plenty of fake foods. I just feel like cooking with processed crap is lame. I mean, what's the point? Those things are always full of sodium and/or sugar and somehow make you feel hungrier than before you ate. And don't even get me started on the flavor. Nothing beats real ingredients that you can choose for your tastes. But last night, that little packet of unknown origin was my saving grace. Anyschway, I think I overpowered the bad stuff about the seasoning packet with the good stuff in my overall meal. Also, I learned a lesson about menu planning. Um, I should uh, plan a menu.

I was going to cut my burrito in half to make for a more artful picture but I was afraid of a pita-like disaster so I took this pre-fold shot so you can see how I assembled it.

This thing was delicious at my desk today. Another meal that momentarily transported me from the office. This time to South of the Border. Tomorrow is Friday though! Even though I've got a boring, chore filled weekend ahead of me, I can't wait for it get here.

  1. My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .
    net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
