Okay, so I am now addicted to breakfast burritos. Since I went vegan, I have had to actually think of what I want to eat, instead of just going to my 'go to' fast food (and I don't mean Fast Food, I mean quick to make) in the morning. So here is the new breakfast burrito...

Olive Oil
Baby Portabella mushrooms
Summer squash
First, I saute these in a pan with a little salt and pepper.

Then I added some left over potatoes I cooked up the night before. I used yellow, red, and purple potatoes and just roasted in the oven with olive oil and salt and pepper. When I make them, I just make some extra so I have them for breakfasts.  Since you may not have those laying around you could add anything you like...I add some firm tofu sometimes. If I am feeling like an asian flare, I will add some tamari and hoisin sauce with the tofu/veggies.

I also added some black beans...but I tend to get carried away and then I am not able to stuff it into a tortilla or finish it! So then I have some for the next morning. I am all about leftovers lately.  I had some leftover guacamole from the night before and added a bit of hot sauce. There you go, yummy and filling.

Enjoy! Let me know if you like it or have something I should try.

Petrified Forest

I can't believe I have lived in Arizona for 16 years now! That's like half my life...ok less than half. I do get antsy to leave once in awhile, so I spend time looking for villas in Italy...or more productively we go for a hike or one of those Arizona type things.

Recently Jessica came out and we went to the Petrified Forest, here is a little taste of what we saw...

Arizona, I do love you...but I can't promise I won't leave you for Italy.
