Overheard in the Office:

The instructions on the Patio burrito instruct one to "wrap loosely" in a paper towel when microwaving. I thought about cooking a second one, changed my mind, balled up the paper towel in my hand, then changed my mind again and wrapped the now-wrinkled towel loosely around the burrito-flavored texturized food product. Setting the microwave, I wander back towards the office.

Meanwhile, Bobbi goes into the kitchen...
RX: "What are you cooking?"

Me: "Huh?"

RX: "It looks like you're microwaving a used kleenex!"

Used Kleenex might be just as good.

SGB said...

Used kleenex doesn't come with Beans and Cheese. Or maybe it does....

NUMMY!
BTW - they improve markedly when actually fried and served with enchilada sauce, like a chimichanga!

I just toss mine unopened into the microondas for two minutes on high. Slice open, insert thick slice of sharp cheddar, and enjoy.

Why microwave? Because boiling would just ruin it...

I sure hope Guffaw is talking about frying burritos and not used kleenex.

Just straight traditional open one end and leave in the wrapper 10 pm length-of-the-state roadtrip style for me. Wrapping in paper towels usually sees some of the tortilla stick to the paper towel, and get pulled off.

Microwaving a used kleenex is apparently not a routine thing in your household. I wonder, how do you disinfect yours for re-use without microwaving them?
