Barbacoa Enchiladas {Tablespoon Tuesdays}

Do you see the far left of this picture and how it becomes naked and bare and sad and lonely and cheese-less?

That is my life.


Wait, it’s not MY life rather, but my husband’s life.

It’s not really his LIFE LIFE. He has a good life. I mean, I’m in it, hey-ohhhhhh! Oh.

I’m not trying to say his life is naked and bare and sad and lonely. But that end of the dish, with no cheese on it, is Aaron’s life.

Let me try this again.

The things I experience in my life and the sacrifices I’m forced to make build character within my soul. Some sacrifices that go unappreciated, unnoticed, alone in the desert under the harsh, blazing sun that whither up like the leathery skin of an iguana.

The lengths we go to, as humans, to show love and honest lukewarm support to those around us with less fortunate palates, but with good hair. It’s a tough road. A taxing journey.

Sometimes the days are long with no end in sight. And sometimes we carry the burdened load of our forefathers and ancestors from the underworlds. But we do it all with a smile. A half smile. A smirk. A whisper of a half smirk.

The extra miles we travel, both on weary feet and in our heavy hearts, lead us to a brighter land full of infinite wisdom, clarity and unicorns.

This is my life. And Aaron’s life. But neither of us. But both of us.

What I’m trying to say is that he doesn’t like cheese and I’ll never understand it and that’s why his side is naked and bare and sad and lonely!

But I’m sure you’re like, DUH.

Barbacoa Enchiladas on the Tablespooooooonssss. Happy Tuesday!

I’ve never said, “happy ___.” Did that work on me? I feel weird I think.

    I could eat that whole daggum tray... But i'd have to add cheese to the cheese-less side... Seriously who doesn't love cheese???! Your husband apparently ;)

    dude. My boyfriend also hates cheese. I cannot fathom it in my cheese-loving mind. What's not to love? When I makes these delicious enchiladas, they will look like yours do - one half so happy and deliciously melty... one side so naked and sad. Can't wait!

    Not sure I could survive without cheese! But you're being a good wife and making half of the dish cheese-less for him! Yummy enchiladas!

    Life without cheese?! I would die. I was a vegetarian for a while but could never leap all the way to vegan town for my love of cheese. Ah well, more cheesy enchiladas for the rest of us!

    I was about to ask you why you married a cheese-hater, but if he has good hair, that explains it. ;-)

    I for a long time could not eat cheese... imagine a world without cheese. It wasn't a choice.
