As I noted, we weren't expecting much. The weather was supposed to be awful - raining and cold all weekend. And of course, since it's California, you never can predict the weather. So instead of rain and cold, it was sunny and beautiful. Well, it was windy, but at least warm enough to lie by the pool for a bit. And do a ton of shopping. And eat at all of our favorite restaurants.
The weather has continued to heat up all week. Today I think it reached it's peak. It was in the 80s. Let me remind everyone, that although tomorrow may be April 1, today is still March. 85 degrees in MARCH?
It was far too hot for cooking. Even Thatdog looked at me like I might be crazy when I entered the kitchen. So this is my easy instant, almost no cook dinner. It's more no cook if you have a rice steamer like I do, or some rice already made. But even if you have to make rice on the stovetop, it won't heat up the whole house, or even the whole kitchen.
Now, if you'll excuse me, there's a popsicle in the freezer calling my name.
Almost No Cook Chicken Burritos
1 cup cooked brown rice
1/4 cup salsa
1/2 cup cooked chicken breast, diced
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 whole wheat tortillas
- Combine salsa and chicken and microwave for 2 minutes. (The microwave, like an oven only faster, hotter, and with far more radiation - yay!)
- Stir in the cheese and rice.
- Divide mixture between the two tortillas and roll up.
