WEEK 3: MUSINGS ON TEX-MEX AND WHAT IS ON MY PLATE THIS WEEK

I cannot believe it is week 3. It has been frigid cold this week, and I am struggling with old feelings about food. When I was young every time there was a cold snap my mom would load us up and take us to eat Tex-Mex. I loved this experience… the chips, the guacamole, the cheese enchiladas! It was a rare treat because my mom only liked to go to Casa Ole when it was very cold out. SOOOO… needless to say I always crave some good old dirty Tex-Mex when the weather is cold, and that is why tomorrow we rock tacos! I am hoping that will stop my desire to dive face first into a bowl of chips and not come up for air until the manager of Chuys asks us to leave because my face buried in the chip bowl is making people uncomfortable. Check out my plan for week 3 below!
