Calorie Counter, docks, stuff. You know.. STUFF that no one else cares about. Hooray!

Jaunty Chapeau

So that last post yesterday was um.. blurry. It was Free Burrito Day at the Chipotle on Old Sauk. That was the line of people waiting. In the cold. The 10 degree cold.
We waited too, 'course. The only thing better than a burrito is a FREE burrito. It was totally worth the cold.

I learned something CRAZY about Chipotle though. ChipotleFan.com has a nutrition calculator for your average burrito. A part from being Calorically INTENSE, I learned that the 13 inch tortilla accounts for a quarter of the calories in them - about 300. Buh? That's as much as some of my meals right now. Crazy! So, I hooked up a Burrito Bol with chicken and had an entirely reasonable dinner hitting around 700 calories.

Also, I boughtified a hard case for my iPhone; due to the sleek, sexy, metal casing on the phone I have a tendency to drop it on top of my cats. They do not appreciate this and I fear the day I drop it and there is no spongy, furry beast to provide un-concrete-like shock absorption. Alas, I cannot keep them underfoot every place I go.

Unfortunately I am unable to show you a nifty photo of the case along with some random part of my anatomy, I've taken a picture of my desk Buddha.

He has a jaunty chapeau for your viewing pleasure.

The heavy caloric intake isn't that much of a surprise when you consider the fried and refried carbs in the menu. It's not totally empty calories, though, so I consider it a decent trade.

I could have done without the cheese but it is so good. :)

I've been trying to use cheese only when it will make a noticeable taste difference.

On my roasted veggie taco salad at Qdoba? I barely even -notice- it, thus, begone!

That is smart. I notice the lack of cheese in Chipotle burritos because they use a very good, flavorful jack cheese that cuts some of the adobo sauce, which is pretty hot.

In general, I don't each much cheese anymore. It isn't worth the calories most days for now.

When I'm done dieting I'm so gorging on a deep dish pizza though. mm... cheese.

Oh, I've never eaten at Chipotle.

I eat a very delicious quantity of cheese, though rarely in deep-dish-pizza form.

*dreams about my favorite goat gouda from whole foods....*

Mm... goat cheese pizza. I need to make goat cheese pizza again.

Ooooh... maybe I should skip the frying and get right to the goat cheese pizza making. On my grill, methinks.

Only when you remove the fear of frying shall your cooking soar.

As a snob, I'm pretty doubty-faced about your presumptious sage-wisdom here.

My dinners got way better when I ponied up the guts to deep fry my own food. You just need a really big pot and a funnel to get the used oil back into a container for future frying.

Think about the chicken!

I'm sort of thinking about doughnuts, actually.

I like that your religious icon is raising the roof.

He needs grills.

Get to paintin'!

But it doesn't have teeth.

Fox and I watched the Flava of Love marathon on Sunday. It was HILARIOUS. I was so amused that he gave Hoopz her own set of gold teeth.
