well, EXCUSE MY ABSENCE! i’ve been on vacation eating and not internetting, but now i’m back!

i was lucky enough to go a friend’s cabin and spend the entire time either eating or floating in a lake. this is one of the meals i cooked up while there: broccoli tofu scramb, gravy, avocado, biscuits and tempeh bacon!

I’m a bit fuzzy on the lines between wet burritos, baked burritos and oversized enchiladas but i decided to try to make wet burritos. maybe the sauce is wrong but it turned out tasty whatever it was.
