There’s nothing like an impromptu dinner out with friends.
Last weekend was another grueling deployment in the office and although I wasn’t involved this time (thankfully) you definitely could tell some people were tired, cranky, and irritated on Monday. Since Jess got stuck with working more than 20 hours Sat/Sun, we decided to forgo cooking and get some Mexican food instead.
There are a couple restaurant sites in Green Bay that never seem to stay open very long – regardless of the type of restaurant it is. It seems the actual building/location might be cursed. When you get off the highway to the main drag of restaurants, there’s two restaurants right there (one to the left and one to the right) and they both turn over constantly. Since I’ve been around I’ve witnessed a pizza parlor, brew house, burger house, Mexican restaurant, and now another Mexican restaurant all in the same location. The previous Mexican place was really delicious and we were bummed they went out of business. Ironically, the Mexican place that went out of business on the right-side location is the same place that just opened up again! I’m confused, are you?? lol
But it’s all good if they have a decent menu, good margaritas, Mexican fiesta music, and ample ambience. This place had it all!
Ben ordered a burrito with chicken and black beans. It was gigantic and wouldn’t you believe it – that boy polished off every bite. Someone was hungry! 🙂
I picked a combination platter with a taco, burrito, and chalupa. The chalupa ended up being lettuce, guacamole, and refried beans – so I didn’t end up eating that.
It was a fun and relaxing dinner. We had a couple coupons which was the icing on the cake too! Can’t argue with a good deal. 🙂
Yesterday was the last warmer day and we’re now looking at 40s for the rest of the week. It’s not snow so I can’t complain too much but I’m eager for the ground to firm up a bit more so I can begin clearing away dead plants and sprucing things up. We’re both hoping to get a few home improvement projects done this year and we’re a bit nervous so we’ll start with small things and go from there.
It’s still dark outside too. It’s 6:10am and I am about to head on out to work. I’m hoping just a few more weeks and we’ll have daylight once again. Giving me the week of light and then brutally taking it away with Daylight Savings Time was cruel and unusual punishment. 🙂
Have a great Tuesday everyone!!
