Football, burrito bowls and fire-breathing dragons

Hello, hello!

I don’t know about you but I am totally dragging today!

Yesterday was quite the Monday.  Seriously.  It was like punishment for having a holiday Monday last week.  It was like I had a double.

I needed a double after I got home.

But, instead, I had a glass of wine to go with my homemade barbacoa burrito bowl.

Om nom nom!

How did I make it?

Well, the first step is to grab your crockpot and make Juli’s barbacoa – recipe here.

Um, a small caution before you proceed

Make sure you have a fire extinguisher handy.

Or, you could tone down the spices. If you wanted to.

But, where’s the fun in that?

Anywho, when the barbacoa is ready, just open up a can of black beans, heat ’em up, throw some in a bowl, and top with the barbacoa!

Add guac, salsa (you should definitely do exactly like me and use spicy salsa. because, who needs tastebuds? burn em off!), lettuce, and cheese, if desired.

GOBBLE it down!

I ate in front of the television last night.

Monday Night Football.

Yes, I know we lost.

I watched the whole thing.  That’s why I’m tired.

In fact, I felt like a ran a darn marathon after the first half!

Not quite sure what Chip Kelly put in the Eagles’ Cheerios but they played like Energizer Bunnies on speed.

Fastest no-huddle offense I’ve seen in a long time.

I needed oxygen and I was just sitting on the couch!

It’s okay.  It was just the first game.  Still got 15 games left on the schedule. HTTR! 🙂

Question: Do you like spicy foods or do you prefer your food to be more like Clark Kent – meek and mild-mannered?
