Notes

In this video, Gaby is going to show us how to make breakfast burritos.

Burritos are meat and vegetables wrapped in a flour tortilla. Sometimes rice or beans are added too. They’re originally from Mexico, but they’re also popular in some American states, such as Texas.

Gaby mentioned that she’s “so pumped”. If you’re pumped, it means that you’re really excited.

For example, “I’m so pumped for the weekend.” - I’m really looking forward to the weekend / I’m really excited about this weekend.

A - “It’s Halloween next week.”
B - “I know, I’m so pumped!”

She also mentions that these burritos “are a way of life for us”. This means that making breakfast burritos on the weekends is kind of a weekly tradition or habit for her family. Almost every weekend they make breakfast burritos.

For example, “playing soccer is a way of life for many teenagers in Brazil” - playing soccer is very common with young people in Brazil.

“I like watching horror movies so much, it’s become a way of life for me.” - I have a habit of watching a lot of horror movies.

In addition, she also says that “They’re especially delicious if you’ve had a little too much to drink the night before.”

This means that her burritos are a great “hangover cure.” If you’ve drunk too much alcohol, you might have a really bad headache, or what we call “a hangover”. If you’re hungover, if you drank too much alcohol last night and you feel sick, then these burritos will help you feel better.

The burritos are “packed” or “full of” her favorite ingredients, so she calls this recipe, the “ultimate”, or the best, breakfast burrito recipe.

By saying “how good does it look?”, she emphasizes that it looks really delicious.

A - “How good is Lionel Messi?”
B - “I know, he’s so good, he’s the best football/soccer player in the world.”
