こんばんは。How’s it going?

Another nice Sunday! The big thing Koa and I got accomplished was replacing our old kitchen faucet with a brand new one. The old one, an eBay purchase from a few years ago, was leaking a little bit and also the aerator nozzle was broken so the stream didn’t come out straight. I think it was pretty good, but the replacement faucet (a Kohler from is so much nicer! Of course, being brand new, the stream is nice, smooth, and well-aerated. But what’s really cool is that the pull-out nozzle has a magnet in it, so it snaps back into place when you are done using it as a hose. Really neat! And as you can see from the photo above, the kitties approve as well.

After that, I went grocery shopping and then prepared carnitas burritos for dinner. I used the Instant Pot again, and the meat turned out great – I cooked it for 35 minutes, but it wasn’t as tender as we’d like it, so I cooked it for 20 more minutes, and it was perfect! The meat shredded easily, and then I put some under the broiler to crisp up.

Instead of the usual tacos, we made burritos using extra-large flour tortillas, with beans, rice, avocado, lettuce, onion, jalapeño, salsa, crema Mexicana, and cheese. They were really good!

After dinner, Koa and I watched Paddington 2, which I had seen before and absolutely loved. Koa enjoyed it as well, and it was a perfect way to end a very nice Sunday.

I hope you had a nice weekend!
