On the way to Palm Springs we stopped at Hadley Orchards. They have a big sign that says they have world famous Date Shakes and every time I pass by on my way in or out of Palm Springs I want to stop there. Finally we did! Of course, we got a Date Shake to share. They also have a store with a bunch of dried fruit and nuts and things. I scored a package of Wheat Berries. Kath has wrote about them in her blog and loves them in oatmeal, so I’ve been meaning to get some.
I estimate I had about 1/3 of the shake. It tastes like delicious vanilla ice cream topped with date pieces. It was really good! I wasn’t sure if I liked dates – but this shake was delicious. I highly recommend stopping here if you’re driving by on the way to Palm Springs or some other fun road trip destination.
I had a diet coke. – Note my sad face.
But, the sadness went away quickly as there was food to be had! I started with a tortilla soup – hold the tortillas and cheese. I ate it before I could get a picture. I also had 1 spicy tuna roll and some tortilla chips.
The main course was a salad with shredded chicken, beans, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, salsa and guacamole for dressing. This is my favorite kind of salad. I love beans and guac on lettuce.
I wanted dessert, so Ben ordered Tres Leches cake while I was in the lady’s room. This restaurant did not have a good selection of desserts. It was either this or fried ice cream. I would have preferred the ice cream, but even that is not my idea of heaven. Again, heaven always involves dark chocolate.
After that we went to a pub. I think it might have actually been called The Pub, but I’m not sure. Cindy and Ben had a couple of shots. I held out again. After about 30 minutes at this place we moved locations. I did have half a Alabama Slammer at the second place. I just didn’t feel like drinking.
