Tacos And Burritos

Happy Halloween

As I mentioned in my Oct 27 post about beef bones, while making the broth, I ended up with a fair amount of well boiled beef, which I thought we’d likely give to the dogs. However, the chef in the family saw it as Tex-Mex waiting to happen, especially since so many other flavors are present. She first doctored the meat with taco seasoning, chili powder and Rotel, which made it pretty decent. For dinner, she turned it into tacos using the usual ingredients.

After dinner, she commented she could feel a special breakfast coming on, which usually means a burrito. She called when it was ready, in case I wanted a photo, and when I went to get it, I was surprised at the addition of a fried egg.

While I’ve eaten huervos rancheros on many occasions, this fried egg on a burrito is my first ever, and it wasn’t even my idea. I thought it was outstanding, although with so many flavors, I’m not sure I could tell the egg was there. Unfortunately, the meat is all gone or I’d request another one tomorrow.

It was predicted to be near freezing here night before last so we moved Bev's plants into the greenhouse for the winter - I'll use the other side for raising next years veggie plants.

After 17 years of never getting around to putting in stained glass, I finally installed insulated glass in our two entranceway side lights.  At $3/gal for propane, it shouldn't take too long to get my money back.  I still have a little mess to clean up.

Finally, it was a bad weekend as a football fan, as my pathetic WVU Mountaineers lost to lowly UConn and while playing pretty good the Vols went down to South Carolina.  Oh well maybe next year - at least for the Vols, WVU needs a coach.  I may become a Bama or Auburn fan.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.



  1. Luckily I pay no attention to football.

  2. Putting an egg on a breakfast burrito is like putting frosting on a cake. Delicious!

  3. I'm jealous that you have a greenhouse - one of these days. Is it heated?
    Good job on fortifying that entry. We found and fixed an insulation void at the top of a basement wall (and floor of the main level)- wow is that making a temperature difference!

  4. This hurts.

    I was going to make a huevos rancheros this morning but got down there and Alexis is making pancakes and baking bread so I have to wait.

    And now I see this are taunting me, aren't you Larry? ha ha

    Funny, my word verification is "revol".

  5. Boo to you too Larry! That breakfast looks wonderful with that egg on top. I love Cathy's comment about the frosting. Beautiful looking door. When you come over to arrange my freezer can you install one for me too? :-)

  6. We got lucky --and the freezing temps stayed off of our mountain --at least where we were.... BUT--George brought about 12-15 beautiful Rose blooms into the house that night, thinking that the freeze would get them... I'm enjoying the blooms and we still haven't had that first freeze....

    Wish we had a greenhouse...We take some of our potted plants and hanging baskets inside --and some into the garage...

    Your breakfast looks good...


I appreciate and enjoy your comments
