I finally had that burrito from Mr. Burrito.
Filled with rice, refried beans, ground beef, cheese and Pico de gallo.
It was as good as I thought it would be.

We went to Mr. Burrito on ConnieLea's recommendation. It is a very small storefront in my town. Low overhead! Two Hispanic gentlemen run the place. I spoke the Spanish I learned in school and they were friendly when I asked for help with a word. The food was great! I had a beef and cheese quesadilla. We'll go back and try other things on their menu. Thanks for the suggestion!

I had homemade vegetable soup and cornbread.

Glad the Mr. Burrito in your town was good, Gloria.
There are two Hispanic men that run the one here too.
They have so many things to choose from.

ConnieLea, homemade vegetable soup sounds so good. I've been churning that over in my mind. Iowa is noted for its excellent sweet corn. Last July I froze quite a bit of it, thinking about soup I'd make this winter. What did you put into your pot of soup this time? I'm imagining potatoes, sweet corn, onion, carrots, celery, and some canned tomatoes. Might add some elbow macaroni too.
We are having a good old-fashioned winter storm this week. Yesterday we got about 6 inches of fluffy snow. (There are many varieties of types of snow, of course.) I just heard a forecast saying it would get down to twenty below zero tomorrow. That's COLD! Your skin will freeze in a few minutes if not covered. I've lived in Iowa all my life so I'm quite accustomed to this. We have a lot of contrast in the weather here.

We had pork chops, Black eyed peas and mashed potatoes.

Gloria, I start my soup with browned and drained ground chuck.
Next is potatoes, carrots, onions, peas (Crowder or Black eyed),
corn, canned diced tomatoes and sometimes okra.
My daughter likes crackers with hers...
but I always have cornbread with mine.

I don't think I could stand your weather, Gloria.
I'm not a cold weather fan Smile I would probably never leave the house Smile
I hope since you have to live there that you enjoy it.
I think the snow is beautiful but the slush afterwards is nasty Smile

Thanks for sharing how you put together a vegetable soup, ConnieLea. It all sounds great except for maybe the okra. Each of us has our taste for certain things.
We had cheeseburgers and some sliced bananas and frozen strawberries.
I love all four seasons and I'm glad to live in a part of the world where there are giant extremes in the weather. It makes me feel sort of adventuresome. Right now there is a winter storm watch posted and we're predicted to get 6 to 10 inches of snow tonight. I have good snow boots and a coat that goes a ways below my knees, along with good mittens and a scarf a friend crocheted for me long ago.
An old-fashioned thing to do in the winter is to use a hot-water bottle. It's a thick red rubber sort of flat bottle that holds maybe 2 quarts of very hot water. It goes to bed with you and you put your feet up to it to keep them warm. I sleep so well when my feet are warm. This way you can keep the thermostat set a little lower at night in the winter. It stays warm all through the night.

We had fried chicken (in my new air fryer), gravy and biscuits.

I remember that type of hot water bottle, my mom had one years ago.
We're getting lots and lots of rain here right now. I'm so tired of rain.

We had hot dogs and chips.
Kept it real simple because my friends 4 yr. old wanted to help.
She loves to think she's doing a good job of helping with anything.
So far she has helped vacuum, put clothes in the dryer and cook supper.
Pretty good for a four year old Smile
When she's 14 she won't want to help Smile
