Inaugural date night


That’s right, we have instituted date night. Currently on Thursday’s. Our first date date night of our new lives happened to be in Albuquerque, NM. After the two precious dinners and the less than satisfying road meals we had been eating we decided we would hunt down authentic Mexican food. Once we got to the hotel we put the iPad to use and searched out a restaurant within walking distance.
In Carver’s words the meal was, “Glorious,” or maybe that was just the beers he was referring to…
The restaurant was very unassuming from the front, as most good restaurants usually are. The service was great and the food was perfect.
We started out with a beer (Pacifico and Negro Modelo) and some chips with lime juice. For the entree I had fish tacos while Carver had mixed fajitas. We shared the meals of course and they were the perfect way to kick off date night. I also LOVED the rice, not your standard red rice. If I had to guess, I would say: white rice cooked in chicken stock and then a mirepoix mixed in before serving. I will certainly be trying it out at home.
Dessert was flan- free because we mentioned their website. And the flan was equally delicious. There had to be a little old lady involved. Our waiter Javier denied it, but I don’t think he was telling the truth.

    Courtney,

    Congratulations on graduating and on the big move! I have been loving your blog as usual and just wanted to wish you and Carver all the best.

    Also, I hope the wedding planning is going well and still fun not stressful. I’m sure it is!

    I am thinking of you both.

    Love, Ally

    • Hi Ally,
      So wonderful to hear from you! Sorry for the delayed reply. Things are going well out here. Keeping busy but still trying to enjoy this little vacation. I am fitting in little spurts of wedding planning, but mostly our time is spent working out, cooking and reading these days.

      Anyways, I hope all is well.
      Love,
      Courtney
