Thanks, Cuz, for Inspiring My Latest Meal for Wifey

[Guest post by hubby.]

Hi There. Hubby here. Hope each and every one of you out there is doing wonderfully!

Yesterday for lunch, I had a chance to harken back to a fond teenhood memory of a sleepover at one of my older cousins' home. He prepared breakfast for us, and I have always remembered it - a breakfast burrito consisting of eggs and cheese. In retrospect, I must have been so impressed with seeing him cook because up to that point in my life, I don't think I ever saw a male actually cook anything among the ranks of the rather large number of family relatives. Plus, that simple meal was just delicious.

So it must have been in his honor that I happened to prepare my version of a breakfast burrito for wifey and me. Instead of just eggs and cheese, I added a few extra elements. Also, we had this breakfast burrito for lunch instead of during its namesake.


Hello there colorful bell peppers, tomato, eggs, cilantro, turkey bacon, sprouted wheat tortillas, and especially you sharp Cheddar cheese... Sorry avocado, just missed your appearance.

Fried up bacon, eggs, and bell pepper; Chopped up cilantro, tomatoes, and avocado.

The Cheddar was busy shaving.

Wifey can't wait to meet you all...

My turn to meet you up close and personal.

Who was I kidding? After a few bites, I added an extra bacon and just a wee bit more cheese.

This meal is simple to prepare, but I learned a lot. I was so surprised at how quickly (at least for me) it all came together, having never really made a breakfast burrito before. I did heed wifey's advice to crack all the eggs into a bowl before frying them up in the pan. But everything else I really wanted to figure out and do on my own. And I did. I also really, really enjoyed all the aspects of making this very simple meal.

I didn't need all the peppers; just the orange one was enough. Next time, I'll definitely chop the tomatoes into smaller pieces. And aside from having to adjust the amount of bacon and cheese, everything was all good in my humble opinion.

More importantly, wifey seemed to really, really like it based on the fact that she said, "I really, really like it."

Cheers Everyone!
