A love affair ends
October 10th, 2009
After many years of pleasure — I don’t know, maybe 15, 20? — a long-standing relationship of mine may be coming to an end. It’s not something I brag about, but for years I’ve carried on an off-again-on-again love affair with…Taco Bell.
Yes, I know that it’s not real Mexican food and that ethnic fast food is never that good. Yes, I know that the company is bad to its employees, the environment, and the world at large. But I have a weakness for their chicken quesadilla. I got periodic cravings that I was powerless to resist.
But now I have a new lover. I spent last night with a Chipotle steak burrito, and there were fireworks.
Seriously, this was one fabulous burrito. Marinated steak, cilantro rice, black beans, cheese, salsa, guacamole. My oh my. I may never again cross the threshold of a Taco Bell.
What can I say? Love it fickle.
