Some was added to a bun and the remaining was added to a Tortilla. Daiya complimented both. I was day drinking and both were delicious. I took a nap and rode a bike. Happy Monday!

Taco Doomsday

As of 2020, the world’s doomsday clock has been set to a short 100 seconds. That was before this damn virus invaded our lives. Hopefully, immune systems and summer climates destroy this Corona without a Lemon or a Lime.

Brocco Taco

Distant mountaintops, subtly waving palm trees silhouetting a true blue sky

Groups of hot air balloons hovering tall in the Northern sky

The brilliant sun, all its powerful energy makes wide

A smile one cannot pry

Every direction is paradise

Life is my heaven

Never-ending photography failure occurs when photos cannot capture what my eyes see. Irreplaceable and priceless brain screenshots are in my head. It has taken many years to begin realizing that experiencing greatness doesn’t need documentation. Photographs are just reminders and in my case, hopefully Inspiration.

7F1BD5FA-8F40-4B4F-A4C0-B03A69D3564D_1_105_cF4941BA9-6682-46E0-B00F-25CEC7642BBB_1_105_c188D46DE-3AD3-4501-87F9-A13862E819EB_1_105_c31493A45-93DB-444F-BE3E-34A20B60A646_1_105_c

As words usually run and hide from me, Broccoli Taco’s were documented today. They were extremely easy and packed with texture & flavor.

024D5503-C54F-4F8E-935D-A7A80F860374_1_105_cC0D936A3-A77B-493E-B554-345C8DF2CBA2_1_105_cD3DB41D2-8BEB-41F7-A3A8-A6DB0E035A77_1_105_c

In a skillet, light oil was heated before throwing in a surplus of Broccoli Florets to be scorched. In the fridge and then out of the fridge, leftover (baked) Onion Rings were utilized by taking a chopped form to be tossed in with the Broccoli. Seasoned with Crushed Rep Pepper Flakes, Garlic Powder, Sea Salt & Pepper, the skillet was popped into the oven to lightly roast prior to adding Ⓥegan Gouda. Broiled, roasted and melted ever so nice, Corn Tortillas were stuffed with this greatness and charred once again.

Again, I do not wish to tell you what to do, but I recommend a bicycle ride, trying something new and taking a couple of decent photos.
