Delicious Tacos @ Tacomiendo

Breakfast @ 9:15am: Orange, 2 Small Apple Pancake + Coffee
I’ve been out of control eating carbs, but tried to have as little as possible. Trying…

We had 3 things to do 1)checking my winter boots at Adventure16, 2)going an open house and 3)grocery shopping. After trying 3 different boos on, I got terribly hungry somehow.

Lunch @ Tacomiendo

I automatically ordered horchata. Oh-uh, more sugar!

Tacos of Lengua & Asada $2.75 each

It tastes so delicious. Carnitas he had was so good too. I liked its crispiness. Although it’s good, I had only one tortilla to control carb portion.

I made these make-ahead dishes and aqua pazza to be frozen for later.

Make-Ahead Meal Diet Day 36: 128.5lb (-4.5lb), body fat 24.5%
*Another surprise that my weight didn’t go up. Now I see it’s important to make adjustment one meal to another. If I had a lot of carbs for lunch, no carbs for dinner would work.

Adovada Quesadillas @ Super Local Drive-In

img_0462
Oh Oh! Did I misresearch? I was not sure this is the one we came for.

img_0463
It was a cute restaurant with a cute elder lady serving by herself.

img_0464
Guy was here!

img_0466
Mine: Carnitas Quesadillas $10
Last thing on my “To Eat” list was Adovada. The lady tells me that Adovada is same as carnitas. Really?

img_0468
Wow, this is best quesadillas in my life! “Adovada” is well braised and chunky.

His: Fish Taco $10

Although my quesadilla was so delicious, I regret not going to a New Mexican restaurant and having sopaipilla & green chili stew for the last meal in NM.

Going up again. A long line there. Shoot!

img_0472
Waited for 10 minutes. Since the line didn’t move at all, we shift to other way to enjoy.

Tacos Tu Madre

IMG_3240
Finally we were here!

IMG_3305
Crispy Fish $2.75 (x2), Grilled Chicken $2, Chorizo & Egg $3.75, Carnitas $2

IMG_3306
Crispy Fish Taco is fairly good and well-balanced.

IMG_3309
Chorizo & Egg is like a breakfast taco. It’s tasty, but I wouldn’t order any more just because egg yolk is runny and hard to eat.

Red Velvet Churros with Cream Cheese Frosting $4
We both were still hungry after 2 or 3 tacos. This crispy outside and fluffy inside dessert satisfied not only our stomach but heart.

My Hamburg Steak

Unfortunately, my husband’s tennis team lost at the semi-finals, that allowed him to come home much earlier around 1pm. He was so nice to come along with me for oil change and grocery shopping after lunch.

There is a Mexican place in the same mall of my oil change place. We had lunch there while waiting oil change got done.

Mine: Lengua Taco, His: Combination of Two Tacos, Asada & Carnitas + Lemonade
I was not so hungry that this generous size taco filled me enough. Lengua is very tender and tasty. The biggest surprise was lemonade. Freshly lemony that we could consume real vitamin 🙂
