Eat-o Burrito...and an orange julius.

Yes, I said "eat-o, burrito!" (we'll get to the orange julius part in a minute...)! I just had one for lunch. I had one for dinner last night, too. Homemade burritos are a cinch and they can even be made ahead of time and tossed in the freezer. So how d'ya like that? Want one tonight? No problem. Interested in making a batch to eat later in the week? Piece of cake. Here's what you need:
  • Organic whole wheat tortillas
  • Organic refried beans (we love refried black beans)
  • Organic onion - diced
  • Local, free range chicken - cooked and diced
  • Shredded cheese
    • Shmear refried beans on tortilla
    • Add onions, chicken, cheese
    • Wrap tightly
    • Place on foil-lined baking sheet and brush top side with olive oil
    • Bake at 350° for 30-40 minutes
    • Top with organic sour cream, local salsa, organic avocado
    • If you want to freeze, assemble burritos, wrap in foil, and place in freezer bag. Add 10-15 minutes on baking time if frozen.
Okay, as for the orange julius. Sara Suzanne - if you're reading this, you're probably wondering why I didn't pair the orange julius with homemade pizzas, right????? Well, if it makes you feel any better, Elise has been calling this drink an "orange Julia".  Anywho... for a refreshing afternoon snack, I did this:
  • 2 organic carrots - juiced
  • 2 organic tangelos - peeled
  • 1/2 organic banana
  • 1/2 C. organic milk
  • 1 T. local honey
  • handful of ice cubes
    • Toss in blender
    • Drink
Happy Friday! Now go eat-o your burrito and sip an orange Julia for dessert!
