That's what Louis Dean said just as soon as we stepped inside Casa Verde Mexican Restaurant in Arlington, Texas this afternoon!!! We have been there before and I remembered all the lights they have up year round. However, they outdo themselves at Christmas!!!
It was so much MORE!!!!
I think the lights may be the same year round but all the tinsel is Christmas 'special!'
I am so happy that I have my husband back!!!
Finally - after a full week of being sick - he felt like going out to lunch!!
He's asking me if it would be wrong to order Chicken Fried Steak at a Mexican restaurant
Of course not!!! That's exactly what he ordered the last time we were here!!
I was so excited to see him feeling better he could have ordered ANYTHING and I wouldn't have said a word!!!
This lunch was as much fun as going to a party!!!
I have been looking forward to this margarita!!
It was DELICIOUS!!!!
I knew it would be!
Yep! This is my kind of place! I felt right at home!
From there we did a little bit of shopping at Walmart - which did not go nearly as well as the lunch!
First of all - we went our separate ways - which was a MISTAKE!!
HE said, "I'll call you." I whizzed through the store buying everything on my list while HE went to the electronics to get the ONE item on HIS list!
I shopped, checked out, loaded my groceries in the car and returned to the store to look for Louis Dean. I called him - repeatedly!!! As in OVER AND OVER!!! It went directly to voice mail.
I figured he had not turned his phone ON!!
After ONE WHOLE HOUR - I had him paged!
Just as they announced his name, I turned around and there he was in the check out line - WITH food in his basket. I told him I had already got everything on our list! Never mind, he says! I am buying this!!! I
stalked walked to the car.......and waited and waited! It was another 20 minutes before he came out! And he was second in line when I left him.
All he would say is , "We are not going to DO THIS!"
That meant - be quiet! I was. All the way home!!!
We ended up with 25 pounds of flour and 6 loaves of bread!!!
We do have fun even when we're NOT!!!
I came in and put up the perishables and TOOK A NAP!
That was exactly what I wanted to do after drinking that margarita!
It was about 7:30 when we started making fudge.
Not just ANY fudge, mind you!!!
This is Jack Daniels Fudge and it has 3/4 cup of Gentleman Jack in it!!
Louis Dean and I licked the pan and let me tell you it tasted GOOD!!!
To end this Monday evening of Christmas week we watched a movie.
I have a ton of points to rent movies at no charge - but I could NOT decide on one!
SO - we looked at the free ones and I found An Unfinished Life.
We really enjoyed it!!!
It's been a great day even with the Walmart fiasco!!
I'm grateful to have my husband back!!!
