EAT what you get!
We left San Antonio and our friends this morning heading towards Arizona. We love the Sonoran desert the only problem is to get to it from East Texas, you have to cross West Texas. It is a beautiful state with beautiful folks living in it but the scenery in West Texas just rolls past hour after hour, not bad, but it NEVER changes.
We stopped along the way at a few Rest Areas and finally arrived in Van Horn around 4:00PM this afternoon, about 7 1/2 hours on the road. We got a tip from Ellie that if we went in and asked nicely at Chuy’s Restaurant here in Van Horn they would let us park in their lot for the night. Well Brenda specializes in nice so we sent her in and yep, it was OK with them if we stayed here. Of course we would eat our dinner there and that brought us to the title of this short entry. I ordered the Chicken Enchildas and Brenda ordered the Flautas. Now Brenda’s Flautas were excellent according to her but my Chicken Enchildas turned into a Combination Dinner with a Taco, a Gordita, and one Enchilda. Not what I ordered this time but for sure what I am ordering the next time…..lol. Kinda caught me by surprise but it was a great meal nevertheless.
It is supposed to cool to the low 20’s tonight but we should be OK, and tomorrow we are off for Arizona, and hoping to wave at Al and Kelly and the rest of the Bayfield Bunch as we cross through Cochise County on our way to somewhere near Casa Grande tomorrow night.
