Engine Burritos

Not a lot of restaurants are open at the time of morning when we want to hit the road in Baja. Quite some time ago we took a page out of old dads playbook, engine burritos. Roxanne buys a big bag of small burritos wraps them in foil and they go on top of the old 7.3 powerstroke. About the time you are starving they should be hot. Make sure to count them on and off, if one of them slides down somewhere they will stink for weeks.

In the 70's, I had a product called "hot dogger". It was a small metal oven that clipped on to the exhaust of my snowmobile. It worked pretty well, but the novelty wore off and we went back to packing sandwiches again!

If you are not living on the edge, you are taking up too much space!

i knew a guy back in the late 70's that loved pulling practical jokes on his pals. Some were out of line... so I put an open can of sardines on his engine block....

Cured him of the habit. :biggrin:

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

If it don't stink, don't stir it....

and if it ain't disgusting, it ain't discussed.
