Breakfast Burrito of Champions

I’m back from Los Angeles! It was a quick trip but I had a great time!

Yesterday I didn’t have time for lunch before I left for the  train station so I packed a lunch to take with me.

Turkey Sandwich, grapes, Wheat Thins and a Trader Joe’s mini S’mores (which Jessica at How Sweet It Is just recreated!).

The train was late and the cab I got in to take me to my brother’s office broke down. I think the cab driver thought I was going to wait while he had someone jump start the car. He got his jumper cables out and everything. I got out and found  another cab. Finally I arrived at his office and we left for my brother in law’s work party at Craft Steakhouse in Century City.

I was a bad blogger and didn’t take any photos while I was there. You see, it’s hard to snap pictures when holding a clutch, a glass of wine (that the waiters kept refilling) and eating every appetizer that passed by you.  The food was amazing!  They had these little short rib sliders that blew my mind.

My husband arrived and we enjoyed the rest of the evening chatting with friends and family. Eventually we made our way to our hotel and called it a night.

This morning after we got up, we hit the road for home. I was about to break out my Larabar for breakfast when my husband declared that we were going to Chano’s for breakfast.

What is Chano’s you ask? Well, it’s a place that we ate at in college all the time. It was an institution. It held and still holds a special place in our hearts. It is a tiny place that sells Mexican food. Awesome Mexican food. In a pretty crappy part of Los Angeles.

My mouth was watering as I ordered my breakfast burrito. The anticipation was killing me.

Yes! Eggs, salsa, cilantro and cheese all wrapped up in tortilla goodness with the most amazing hot sauce you’ve ever poured on anything.  Oh Chano’s….I love you. Sorry Larabar.

My husband dropped me off at the train station to pick up my car and I went to get a spray tan for Hawaii (I cannot subject people to my pale body in a bikini).

I came home and the hubby went to a meeting. I felt hungry so I had some watermelon.

I still feel hungry. Wish I had another burrito.

What would be in your ideal burrito?

What are you plans this weekend? We are going to the Del Mar Racetrack tomorrow to celebrate a friend’s birthday and then we are off to Hawaii on Sunday!


  1. My mouth is watering looking at your chanos. I am so jealous.

  2. I am going to my nephew's 1st birthday party. I made the most delicious cupcakes and ate way too much of the icing ;)

  3. Oh my gosh, I haven't had a ginormous breakfast burrito in ages. I love mine stuffed with eggs and potatoes and tons of hot sauce. No cheese or meat is required, as long as the sauce is good. You are making me crave one now!

  4. I love how busy your summer has been! Hawaii sounds like heaven. Don't be jealous, but my weekend plans including heavy-duty house cleaning, and grocery shopping. :)

  5. LOVE your blog! The design is absolutely GORGEOUS. Did you do it yourself? Have a great weekend!

  6. A breakfast burrito would be ideal for me! Except add some black beans! So exciting that you're going to Hawaii!

  7. Hi Keri! My blog was designed by Dreamlike Designs. There's a link at the bottom of the blog. Thanks so much!!

  8. I finally tried fresh cilantro on a b-fast burrito a few weeks ago... ohmygooooood1 so good! <3
