Scott and I are having our famous-only-to-us Burrito Night. These DIY burrito evenings were inspired by — what else — SoCal. Scott visited southern California for the first time in 2010, when I was in Encinitas going through the two-week Ashtanga yoga teacher training program that rocked my world.
We enjoyed more than one meal at Juanita’s in Encinitas and thought — we have to try to do this ourselves when we get back to Michigan. Those of you who are from California or have lived there know this — burritos in California are the greatest burritos in the history of the world forever and ever amen, plain and simple. I remember after college, when I moved in Massachusetts, I almost cried (not really, since I’m not a big crier) when I tasted what one local shop called a burrito. New England does not know how to do burritos. Period.
A Jay-Z retrospective is on, and of course, it discusses the Beyonce-and-Jay-Z-create-fireworks single of “Crazy in Love.” Scott just said “Crazy in Love” is one of the best pop singles of all time.
“Ever? Top 10? Top 20?” I said, before having my last bite of my shrimp burrito.
“Top 50 for sure.”
I don’t back down on a lot of things, but when it comes to music, I have to say that Scott knows his stuff.
I guess that means we’ll have to ask the DJ (who has not been hired yet — can’t even wrap my head around that right now, with so much else to deal with) to make sure “Crazy in Love” is on the playlist.
So hey, guys, what songs do you think need to be on the playlist the night of the wedding? Comment below, OK? We can’t read minds. If you don’t say your two cents, we’ll be playing Wu-Tang, Arcade Fire, Radiohead and salsa tunes you won’t understand the lyrics to unless you speak Spanish . . .
P.S. — We’ll never be the visually and gastronomically delectable blog that is Between He and She, but we’ll give you this tip if you want to make your own burritos: Cilantro is key.
