big news!

I just ate a Big City Burrito in my own home. It was fresh. It hadn’t sat in the car for 2 hours before I could eat it at home. How, you may ask, is this possible? Because … THERE IS A BIG CITY BURRITO IN MONUMENT!!!!!!!! That’s just 5 miles north of here!! This is amazingly exciting news!!!!!!

And somehow, it has been there since last June (Big City’s wedding gift to us, I am sure — too bad they forgot to tell us), but we just found out about it today. How is this possible??? I don’t have an answer for you there. I guess they just need to do some better advertising. What really gets me is that there has been a sign on the interstate – one of those “what food is at this exit” signs – since Christmas Eve. How many times have we driven to Ft. Collins since Christmas and completely missed this sign?! I can’t even believe it!

But the good news is, it is here, and it is DELICIOUS. The other good news is it’s close, but not so close that it’s convenient to go there more than once every couple of weeks, so it won’t completely ruin my healthy-eating attempts. Because, as delicious as it is, that deliciousness is a far cry from healthy. Mostly because of the sheer volume of it. You can’t have big city without stuffing yourself silly. Don’t even try. You will be full to the brim after eating one of those burritos. And once you’ve started, it’s really, really hard to just stop when you’re only a little full. No, it’s pretty much impossible not to finish the whole thing because it is SO DAMN GOOD that you just can’t stop until it’s gone. It just can’t be done.

But, OH. MY. GOD. I am so happy that it is no longer 2 hours away! I don’t think there’s any doubt what my splurge-day meals are going to include now, is there?

Thank you, Burrito Gods, for bringing your goodness closer to my hometown. I am forever grateful.
