"Жизнь такая ироничная. Грустно осознавать, что такое счастье, шум ценить тишину и отсутствие, чтобы ценить присутствие."

"Life is so ironic. It takes sadness to know what happiness is, noise to appreciate silence and absence to value presence."

A beautiful day to my beloved fellow Steemians! It's been a long time since my last post here. And I am missing everyone and in deep need to do some catch ups. I hope you guys are doing well wherever you are in the Steemit globe.

"Hello! Welcome to Cookntell!"

This is recipe #55
The Homemade Shrimp Burrito n' Tortilla

Store Moving Insta Story 1_1.jpg

Burritos anyone? And who else loves shrimp for breakfast? I know it's weird but shrimp in a burrito oh just tastes so good. I'm having one now as I type these words- a burrito while making your post is like a match made in kitchen, I mean heaven. :-)

If you'll notice everything I do here is from scratch since I love making my own. Homemade tortillas are way better than store bought. This one I'm making is the perfect one for you! Make sure to follow the right measurement and you'll come up with this better than store bought tortilla you'll ever gonna have in your life.


So yes I've been away for almost 3 weeks already. My mom got admitted at the hospital for a week and I needed to take care of her the reason why I was absent for many days here. It's been a struggle but the Lord is good and the her Doctor is really taking care of her medical needs so well.

We've been staying in the city due to Mom's condition but now we're back in the island. And oh it's hard to put in words to describe how much I so missed my photography and making my food videos just for you guys here on Steemit. It's like my world revolve around. I so love photography and will continue pursuing it until the end of time. (very sentimental and true)

Watch this VIDEO for a full recipe adventure!

There's so much I want to share to you guys but it seems like I don't have the words to say it but all in all I'm very happy knowing that my Mom is here and she's well. I came to realise the value of the person during their absence and it's when you appreciate their total being and how much they have influenced your life.


As a nurse, I had flashbacks during the times when I was working at the hospital and it's sad to see people being sick and family being sad. I myself would pretend to be okay and strong in the middle of a very heart wreaking moments of the patient's life specially when they are on the verge between life and death and seeing the families crying in front and the patient lying down as if it's his last breath of life. I agree it is just so hurting to witness this kind of scene and situation. I'm thankful I didn't end up like this during my Mom's time.


I remember I could hardly sleep every night coz I cannot tolerate closing my eyes while she's breathing heavily. There were sleepless nights I needed to endure. Me, Mom and brother, we kind of established a more closer family ties moments where we saw Mom's most vulnerable times and were able to witness these happenings and remembering it just makes my heart cry.

Also in times like these and sometimes it takes sadness to know what happiness is. Happiness when I learned how my brother is in times of care and need. I saw a different side of him and seeing him taking care of mom is so relieving. Even the strongest person is challenged in these times of pain and struggle. It's as if the green leaves turn to yellow as the sun is shimmering its bed. I saw hope and love.


And for that, I would like to share this recipe that my brother loves. We both like the smell and taste of cumin. Even though it reminds me of the smell of the cave man but its taste reminds me of the thousands of its yellowish bountiful harvest and its flavour devours all misery in the planting season. Sorry I'm lost with my words and I hope this communication barrier will end soon. Lol.

I bet it's the taste and smell of cumin is star of the burrito show. Also the combination of cheddar cheese and mayonnaise complements it and brings it perfection.


Here is my share of my homemade burrito. I hope you guys like this and please feel free to download the recipe photo. I'd be glad if you do so. Regards! 🌯🌯🌯

Hello @raymondelaparra thanks for dropping by! Have a beautiful day! :-)

This food must really taste delicious looking at the picture. What really caught my eyes was your quote that "Life is so ironic. It takes sadness to know what happiness is, noise to appreciate silence and absence to value presence."

" it is true, without absence, we can not value presence and without noise, we can not value silence

No more me eating burrito's from ITS BURRITO HEAVEN. Their stuff is not fresh, it seems like I get shortchanged on the amount of stuff I get from their GODZILLA burrito and the beans looks like people stepped on them before adding them to the tortilla. Its definitely worth it to spend time and follow your recipe and make it from scratch to eat your SHRIMP BURRITO!! Forest Gump would definitely approve of your shrimp burrito :-) Please keep up the original posts, I can see you put your heart and soul into it!!


Oh thank you so much @vaughnpierre my fellow nerdy steemian. Your comment is so touching and I much appreciate it. :-) definitely homemade foods are the best other han you enjoy the process of making it you also have peace in mind about your food being clean and healthy. :-) but sometimes there’s a cheat day for everyone. Hehe. See you around!!! XOxo
