A Week's Worth of Dinners - Friday

I'm getting worse at this as the week goes on ... I start taking pictures as I'm preparing dinner, but by the end I'm just hungry and too busy with the details to pick up the camera.

I think somewhere along the line I've posted pictures of this dish, so you'll understand that the "steak burrito" pictures don't get all the way to the "burrito" phase.

In the beginning ... roasted-garlic olive oil, chopped garlic, salt, pepper, and fresh cilantro.

Adding the skirt steak, fresh lime juice, and more garlic ... mmmmm ...

Avocado for the guacamole.

I can't remember if I mentioned that I'm taking B-12 supplements ...

Sizzle. The skirt steak is in long thin strips and is wound like a pinwheel, which is why it looks like it's unravelling. It is. But it's perfect for burritos!

Rice is done, salsa added, tortillas and cheese at the ready.

This is where it stops, kids. We chopped up the steak and added it to the rice, and then the assembly line started. I heated tortillas, Scott added guacamole (and sour cream for me), spooned in the rice and meat and we rolled them all up. They were beautiful - really, you should have seen them. It seemed a shame to eat them - but yeah, we did.

Saturday night is the last of the "Week's Worth of Dinners". It may end up being pictures of a restaurant.

I'm glad you took pictures of the steak burritos...they were yummy goodness!

BTW, I think you might have B12 on the head. :)
