food is important to me. even when i am busy and don’t have time, i know that eating yummy and healthy food will help me slow down and have a better day. this winter i’ve gotten into making my own frozen burritos. they taste way better than the ones i can buy at the store and instead of paying 2.99 a pop, i might pay 6-10 bucks for all the ingredients to make a dozen at home. a couple of weeks ago i decided to use up all the tomatillos that lucy and i had gotten in our bountiful basket to make some salsa. i had a bunch of beans that i had made and frozen, i had a pack of tortillas, so all i needed was to make up a pot of rice. it was awesome. it took about 40 minutes start to finish and now i have a freezer stocked with burritos for the days when i don’t have left overs for lunch.
