Burrito Memories

When Izzy was a baby, he had lots of GI problems. As a result, I was on a severely restricted diet (because of breastfeeding). There was very little that I could eat, and the few things that I could eat were bland and boring. But then I discovered Amy's burritos. I fell in love. So tasty! So healthy! So easy! I ate them weekly for the next YEAR that I nursed Izzy.

After Izzy's tummy troubles subsided, I started eating normal food again. Amy's burritos were too expensive, and I stopped buying them. Yesterday I was at the grocery store, and I seen a black bean burrito. I couldn't resist. I plunked two of those bad boys in my cart. While we were paying for our groceries, Izzy started crying for a burrito. Although he had never eaten an Amy's burrito before, I decided that I would share my lunch with him.

When we got home, Izzy asked me to make the burritos. And then my son proceeded to eat an entire burritos by himself! He kept telling me how yummy it was, while licking his chubby little fingers. Could be possibly remember the taste from my breast milk? You have no idea how much he delighted in those burritos. It was bizarre and adorable, all at the same time.
