Zucchini & Black Bean Burritos

Ever have those days                              well, weeks           where everything you need to accomplish is just ominously nibbling at your ankles?

And if you don’t keep kicking at the nasty bugger you know it’s gonna swell up and swallow you in your frazzled entirety?

Yeah. That’s today. That’s this week.

I really wanna sit here.

Sit here, eat burritos and drink margaritas with you. Jib-jab about our week and stuff, ya know.

But it’s not happening. So not.

If you too are battling a potentially dangerous and totally obnoxious ankle-biter today…

I’m sorry. It’s okay. Let’s mentally hug right now.

Feel better?

Probably not.                     Just remember, this one little thing.   And all will be well.

These burritos are really easy. And yummy.

Might make you feel better.      You could give it a whirl.

PS… If we don’t get the chance to play catch-up before Sunday, have a blessed Easter.

Unless that’s not really your thing.

Then, just have a really nice weekend.
