My first time! (lunch with Deacon Allan Rogers at Chipotle)

Allan Rogers, (the excellent Deacon at St. Boniface Church, Siesta Key, FL)  and I had lunch today.

At my request we went to the Chipotle on Frutville Rd in SRQ  (Fruitville and Honore).



I had never before eaten at at Chipotle restaurant.

This  restaurant chain got a bad rap a few years ago when they served some "contaminated?" meats, and customers got sick.

And I knew that their food is high in calories.

But I wanted to give them a try.

Silly me, I had always thought that Chipotle was a high end chain with servers etc.  Instead  I discovered that it's just another fast food joint with a lot of "take out" customers

I got a Burrito with Chorizo.




It was very good but extremely unmanageable in its wrap..  So I went back to  the counter; got a bowl, and poured the contents out,  eschewing the wrap.

It was pretty darn good in spite of all the calories, and the high price.  I think that my local independent Mexican restaurant could provide  a superior product at a lower price.

But mostly I was glad to spend time with with Allan.  He is a good Deacon.  He is a man of God,.

And he is a trusted friend.

Now I must set my mind  to getting ready for my trip to the U.K., which begins next Monday (Sep 18th.) As we say in the U.K.



Cheers!
