I had every intention of documenting our delicious dinner. For posterity. That's why we take so many pictures of our food, right? So that 50 years from now our grandchildren will stare at pictures of slightly less processed foods than they will be eating. Unless the Zombie Apocalypse really does happen and they are living off the land and eating squash and pheasant. Then they'd be waaay healthier than us and we would go down in history for being the chunkiest chumps around. Can you tell I've been watching way too much Walking Dead lately? Where was I. Oh. Yes. Pictures of food... I'd be willing to bet, if you opened up Instagram and searched #caferio, you'd be able to see a ton of pictures that would have been identical to mine. And if you are fortunate enough to live within a 50 mile radius of a Cafe Rio, you count your lucky stars and don't take it for granted. In fact, if a Zombie Apocalypse does happen, my first order of business would be to order a year supply of sweet pork barbacoa. Those homemade recipes are good, but you always get a hint of carbonation from the coke and that is just gross. Who wants to eat carbonated pork? No one. Bubbly pork is possibly the worst thing you could come up with.
Moral of the story: Don't make homemade sweet pork, no matter how many times you've seen that recipe repinned on Pinterest.
Moral of the story #2: Don't eat the whole burrito. Cafe Rio is one of the few things that is just as delicious on day 2.
More of the story #3: Watch out for walkers. Those zombies may just try to steal your sweet pork. Maybe just keep a crossbow in your trunk just to be safe.
