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.
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.
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.
