My Not so “Pin”iful Life…Oh and Chicken Burritos

chicken burritos

Ok y’all…so this post is really more about life than it is chicken burritos, but I thought I’d give you a  twofer.  I love beautiful things, and Pinterest is great, I love all the ideas, but let’s face it…life is mostly not “pin” iful.  Supper is not always rosemary steaks and cauliflower “mashed potatoes”.  Most of the time it’s, well…chicken burritos.  The other day in my post about my flying pig I was all motivated, but this week has really gotten to me with this whole blogging thing.  I am by no means a photographer, which is almost a requirement.  And my life, is by no means very “pin”iful (I mean really, I’m not even sure I remembered to brush my teeth this morning).  I was getting wrapped up in all the glamour of Pinterest, and hoping I could be as awesome as everybody else.  I want my pins to look as glamourous as everyone else’s.  I was feeling motivated.  I was practicing my camera skills, and I use that term loosely because all I have is my camera on my phone.  If I had a good camera I’m sure it would get broken around here anyway.  I was going to attempt a beautiful post with “pin”iful pictures and then…my basement took on a little water.  I had to move everything upstairs as quickly as possible.  Now, don’t get me wrong, I am very thankful that I happened upon the water coming in, in time to get my important stuff out and safe, but it had me feeling defeated.  How can I blog, how can I work and learn, how can I have a “pin”iful life when I’m living a real life?  But, this morning I woke up, I decided to adjust my attitude, and I decided to just be real.  Maybe one day I can have beautiful posts and awesome pictures to share on Pinterest, but for now I am just going to share with you my real life…and my real life is chicken burritos.

“Pin”iful Chicken Burritos (This is going to be pretty simple):

-Some chicken (I used 2 chicken breasts because it’s just me and the two boys eating tonight and one doesn’t really eat anyway)

-Taco Seasoning (I make my own homemade version, but honestly if I hadn’t had any already made up then this would have turned into grilled chicken bites)

-Salt to taste

-Toppings of your choice (I had sour cream, cheese (pre-shredded tonight), taco sauce and an avocado

-tortillas

Directions:  Chop up your chicken into bite size pieces throw in your skillet with a little oil, toss in taco seasoning and salt to taste, toss around on medium to medium low until fully cooked.  I always pick the thickest piece of chicken and cut it in half to check and make sure it is cooked through.  I’m guessing you can figure out the rest, but just incase…warm up your tortillas, add chicken and toppings of your choice, fold and eat.  Be sure to snap a couple of pictures on your phone (notice no picture of the actually burrito because that’s about the time things got a little crazy trying to feed everybody and I forgot…so just use your imagination please).  Then throw the pictures together in a collage, add some fancy writing and viola…”pin”iful chicken burritos.  By the way the oldest loved them more than most things I spend hours on and of course, the middle didn’t touch it.

So, now, I want to hear from you…What are your go to, quick and easy, super “pin”iful supper ideas???
