The Best

The best road trip snacks are crunchy and salty – like Pirate’s Booty and cucumbers. I brought a lot of food because I have been hungry all day!IMG 6390 thumb The Best

We passed through Palm Springs and just missed my BEST friend who was getting off work, but couldn’t meet up.

The best thing I learned today was how these wind turbines work, courtesy of Ben’s brain.

The best thing I ate today was some of Ben’s Chili Relleno. Hole-in-the-wall Mexican food is the BEST!

This was not the best guacamole I’ve ever had- it’s probably the only thing I make better at home than I have ever gotten at a restaurant.

The best complete protein combination is rice and beans. Match made in Heaven – where good Mexican food is served everywhere.

I ordered fish tacos. I was looking for the “best” thing on the  menu in terms of something that would make me full in a healthy way (I was starving for the 5th time today at this point).

I could not find anything on the menu that I could eat and settled on these. They were okay (not as good as Ben’s dinner). But, I didn’t realize until after we ordered that I could have ordered chicken tacos or something. It didn’t occur to me to order something with poultry (since I’ve recently decided to go the way of the poultry-tarian.

Ben went to work at 4:45am this morning so he could get out early for our road trip. While he was ordering a coffee next door I got a donut to share.

I love hotels. It’s like a brand new house that’s super clean (that may say something about how I keep my place).

“Hello!” from my hotel!

    I love beans and rice! I’m glad you had a nice road trip…and your hotel looks lovely.
    Having spent my early years in California, I remember Winchell’s doughnuts. My dad is from NY and when his father came to visit once, he could not get over the fact that we had Winchell’s and not Dunkin Donuts. Now that I’m addicted to DD iced coffee, I can understand my grandpa’s displeasure.

    Have a great time….and happy running!

    I just bought popcorn for our last road trip and it was the best idea!

    Gosh, what is it about restaurant gauc sometimes that makes it tastes like acid? THey must put some kind of preservative in it. Last time we went out for Mexican, the guac tasted like that. Definitely not authentic.

    Glad you guys made it safe. Have fun! :)

    I haven’t had pirate’s booty for at least a year, and now I really want some again. I really need to stop reading blogs when I’m hungry :)
