If It’s Tuesday…

…it must be La Corona!

Every Tuesday rain or shine you’ll find Dear and I at our favorite local Mexican Restaurant, La Corona.

We really enjoy their salsa. Did you notice the larger than usual salsa container? Our waitress knows we go through the little one too fast so she brings us a big bowl to begin with. During my season of restraint, I count out 6 chips and lay them on a napkin on the table. That is my portion. I double dip, triple dip, quadruple dip to get as much salsa as I can with my 6 chips. Salsa is cheap in calories…

We have a favorite waitress at the restaurant. This is Liliana. She treats us like family and we appreciate her work ethic and the big bowl of salsa

Here’s my restraint meal. I get one soft corn taco with Chile Colorado for the meat. Instead of rice I get a salad. Instead of refried beans I get the ranch beans. I didn’t want to give up our tradition of going out on our dinner date on Tuesdays so this is a good alternative meal to enjoy without the typical Mexican meal calories! Monday marks 4 weeks of restraint for me.

It’s Friday and for me the week seemed to go slow for a change. I mowed the lawn yesterday and found some mystery meat in the garage freezer. It really is a good idea to label stuff you freeze. We are pretty sure it was pork loin and it cooked up real nice because it was pre-seasoned well. Oye!

Do you have any plans for the weekend?

  1. I love how you messed with my head…If it’s Tuesday… LOL! Thank goodness, you mentioned “Friday.” Looks like a fabulous meal and it’s good to get restrained just ahead of the holidays.

  2. You are a hoot! 6 chips……you go girlfriend! We have to make a trip south some Tuesday around supper time:) I’ll eat the rest of the chips and ask for 2 bowls of that salsa.

  3. You are really doing well with restraining!! I’m impressed. How’s it working for you? I’ve been “restraining” since August 16th and it’s going well. I figured I had to put the brakes on sometime – the scales were only going one direction and it wasn’t down…

    • Looks like we caught the restraining bug at the same time Kathie. I’ve been restraining since August 20th. It’s good to see the numbers on the scale go down instead of up!! I also feel so much better.

  4. That looks so good. We love the salsa at our little local Mexican place. Sometimes you can see many using spoons scooping up the salsa, avoiding the chips. IT IS SO GOOD! Enjoy your weekend!

  5. Good for you!! You have managed to plan well!!! And..to have your fav restaurant join in is really nice! We are off to Mt. Angel, Oregon to the Octoberfest! Foodfest is what is should be called.
