Brinner? Dinfest?

What are you doing at 6 am?

I’m eating this:

Yeah, it’s a burrito bowl.

At breakfast time.

Look, I’ve driven like a madman the last two nights – getting in at 4 or another after both nights.

I had a lazy week, ok?

Last night, I had a pizza from the freezer. And a bottle of wine, natch.

Tonight, I wanted to eat something a little better – even though I did have more pizzas in the old icebox. So I tried this burrito bowl recipe I found while scrolling through Google a few weeks ago.

Plus, I was seriously behind on my commitment to use last year’s Xmas gift – an InstaPot I’d been wanting for over a year – once a month.

Apparently, this weekend was a catch up on a couple of different fronts.

I was (as usual) skeptical about any recipe that starts with a goddamn life story of the recipe and how it saved the lives of the author and their family. Just give me the recipe already, I’m not marrying into the family.

Following the recipe – aside from guessing the amount of rice needed since the author was too busy telling me about how much she loved avocados to remember to put the rice dosage in the recipe. I mean seriously…get you and your love-o-cado a room and write a complete recipe!

This is how all that looked when the lid went on.

After 12 minutes of cooking in the InstaPot, this is what I got.

Not the most promising result. But after pulling the meat out – shut up, Diezel! – and giving it a stir, I was presented with something a little more appealing.

Dinfest is served!

With two leftover meals, to boot!

And, yeah…I’m pairing it with a nice Portuguese red that I got at Grocery Outlet during the last 10 minutes of their 20% off wine sale. Well, there might have been more than one bottle.

Bon Appetit!

  1. God knows I’m a slow cook fan. Even an InstaPot fan. I hd probably a dozen good pot recipes, and have forgotten all of them… “But after pulling the meat out – shut up, Diezel!” There’s that joke again. I can even tell you when and where I was the first time I heard it.

    1. Yeah…I went a little butt wild there! My limit was three cases, but as I was headed for the checkout I saw a case of Portuguese red blend that I had to grab – the Silver Fox loves Portuguese wine! It was so close to closing, that I decided just to keep it all versus putting back one of the original three I’d chosen. But I’m definitely not trying to drink four cases all by myself! 😬😬😬
