That hour flew by as we talked to people getting out of the cold in the Midwest, and we enjoyed some time together just holding hands and basking in the time alone. We both are hyper-active over-achievers, and unless we get out of our house and go somewhere where we can’t do productive things, we often don’t stop to just enjoy the moment. This is one reason date night is so big for us, and a huge reason why we try to take little getaways quarterly.
We were set on the Relleno de Pollo until we found out it was chalk full of walnuts. I wanted it so bad I contemplated if a night of Benadryl and a possible hospital trip was worth it. Under some circumstances I may have justified, but a wedding anniversary probably isn’t the time or place.
Our waitress recommended the Smoked Pork Cheeks instead, and boy are we glad we listened!
We also opted for the smoked chicken enchiladas from the start, it was an excellent choice!
Away from our responsibilities, full of the best Mexican food we’ve ever had (and we’ve had some!), and relaxing on a seriously crappy hide-a-bed made for one perfect first day!
