Cinco de Mayo Dinner

Two years ago today  Ben and I were in Vegas…for our third date. On our 2nd date we talked about how I had never been to the Grand Canyon. He suggested that we go that following weekend and I agreed. We both thought the other person was bluffing. That Thursday he called me and said he would pick me up Friday at 7pm. I didn’t figure he was serious, (but I kinda hoped he was) so I agreed.foodies-047

He picked me up and we drove to Las Vegas to stay overnight and then go to the Grand Canyon in the morning. The GC is a few hours away from Vegas. (*The pic is from our cruise last year.)

The trip was fun and crazy, and had many speedbumps including –

– He lost both our IDs Saturday night in a club, so we couldn’t get a room

– We tried to sleep in his freezing car, but I could not sleep

– We ran out of gas on the way home. Seriously.

But, it worked out because we’re getting married next month. Ha.

I felt obligated to have some Mexican food for dinner since it’s Cinco de Mayo. But, I’m sorry to say that I didn’t actually cook anything. I really should bust out some good Mexican dishes for you guys. Not today folks.

I just grabbed something out of the freezer – an Amy’s burrito. dscn8458

I had leftovers of the Calavasitas (aka Carlos Vasitas) and the burrito. It was good, but needed Tapatio.dscn8457

Dessert– I grabbed a sip of the Silk Chocolate Soymilk and a few tiny Nutter Butter cookies Matt was eating for a snack, but stopped myself and grabbed a sf hot cocoa which is super filling. Now I’m watching Real Housewives of NY and blogging away.
