I’ve always poked fun at Mr. How Sweet for the way he mixes everything on his plate together into one big, slop-pile mess.

But the truth is, I make my own slop-pile messes every now and then, too.


Mine are a bit more contained and not as ugly, but they are still odd.

In fact, I’m almost afraid to tell you what is inside this wrap.

This wasn’t my lunch, but it was my dinner last night.

I didn’t realize how fast my hunger would hit me, and I didn’t have anything prepared. The thought of cooking something just made me hungrier, and I was about to whip out the devilish Stacy’s pita chips when I just started throwing things into a crispy tortilla. Or, shall I say, ‘tor-till-ah,’ since that was how Mother Lovett pronounced it. And she wasn’t joking.


Inside are two eggs, over easy, avocado, organic baked beans, cherry tomatoes, low-fat monterey jack cheese and barbeque sauce. This is all wrapped up in a La Tortilla Factory tortilla, because I love them so much that I will burrito-wrap my babies in them once they are born.


The end.

    Eggs and beans are such an awesome combination. A little avocado in the mix sounds even better!

    Tortilla babies are cool.

    I’m the queen of odd combos…my co-workers think I’m utterly insane. But this quesadilla looks yummy! I love the idea of eggs in a tor-till-a…I will try.

    Sounds fantastic, though I think I’d switch out black beans for baked beans. Although maybe it all works with the BBQ sauce. I usually scramble my eggs before putting them in a torilla, I can’t wait to try them over-easy!

    haha I do that all the time. My husband thinks I’m weird because I’m perfectly content to put a bunch of stuff in a bowl and eat it even if it doesn’t look good.

    My mom pronounces in “tor-till-ee-ya”. It drives me NUTS! But that combo sounds good to me.

    eh doesn’t seem that odd to me. maybe because my dinner last night was pretzels, watermelon, blueberry banana muffins, and whipped cream. now THAT was sad.

    i had to comment today bc i posted a salad on my blog (i know i know you don’t like veggies :)) but it DOESN’T include bacon but people swore it tasted like bacon. i thought you’d appreciate that! http://www.thesweetslife.com/2010/07/cranberry-nectarine-salad.html

    I think that a big wrap filled with eggs, avocado and hummus and veggies is amazing.
