Lunch Time Review - Arturo's Mexican to Go

Today I lost my lunch buddies and was on my own.    I could sit in the cold office reading my book or go for a walk and see what happens!

I mentioned to our HR person that I didn't know what I wanted to eat and that I may just wander until something appeared and inspired me, she told me I MUST go try the "Taco Truck". 

She told me which direction to start walking in and I vaguely remembered passing by Howe and Cordova late one afternoon and seeing a "Taco Truck" packing up.  

When I arrived at Howe and Cordova I was met with this lovely sight:

I ordered the Calle Trio which is 3 corn tortilla's with your choice of meat and salsa.    It comes with black beans, rice and salad for $9.50 ; I also ordered a bottle of water for $1.   The staff are quick, efficient and clean, and I was impressed by how quickly my "non-fast food" was done.

A plus for this food truck - they take debit and credit cards, but I had cash and left a nice tip.    I ordered 1 Chicken and 2 Beef taco's and I should have known when the guy smiled when I asked for it medium spicy!

As you can see the portion is HUGE and all lovely fresh ingredients.  I could not stop eating the salad which was a simple lettuce salad with lime, mango, pico de gallo, corn, black beans and cheese.

The chicken taco went first and it was AMAZING!   The chicken was moist and perfectly seasoned.   There was a lovely bite from the salsa, jalapeno's and onions.   I added some black beans and rice, which as many of you know is huge because I hate mexican rice.   This rice was nice, not dry, not wet, not overly tomatoey or spicy, it was just nice!

The beef taco's were more spicy and very very tender.   The chipotle was a lovely warm flavour that was in perfect balance with the fresh veggies and beans.   A word to the sensitive, I like a nice spicy meal, so if you are a wimp go with the mild!   I think if I ordered just chicken I might have to kick up the spice level but the beef was the perfect mix of spicy and yummyness!

I stuffed my face, until I could eat no more and alas I was not even close to clearing the plate!   In my humble opinion, well worth the $10 and it was a nice walk.
Another bonus with Arturo's is that they have the corn option for those who are gluten free and they have a burrito in a bowl for those who are carb free.   You get all the ingredients from the burrito but on the salad!   If your going low fat you could drop the cheese and sourcream as well because they ask you what toppings you would like for each dish.

I highly recommend you make a stop at Arturo's Mexican to Go next time your in the neighborhood for lunch on a work day.  If you have the Eat Street App it is located under "Revuelta Cue Arturo."   Here is their website - http://arturos2go.com/

I hope you all had a wonderful lunch and I leave you with this parting shot of my "lunch room" this afternoon!

Till next time.....

Continued adventures in dating.....

Good Morning readers!

All three of you!

I know you are chomping at the bit to hear all about my wild and crazy adventures in babysitting uh online dating.

Well for the most part it seems to be a wash out.   I will talk with some interesting guys and it seems good and then POOOOFF...they are gone.   I suspect its because i don't jump on the hey come F^&* me train fast enough?   Either that or my busy schedule doesn't work for them.   For the most part thought its just dudes looking for nookie!

Don't get me wrong, it hasn't all been bad, I have talked to some really nice guys but so far it hasn't turned in to much.   But let me tell you about one experience I had last night.

I have seen this guys profile on a couple of different sites - he uses the same three lame pictures which were taken one right after the other and then describes how amazing he is in the context of the stuff he has and what he has accomplished.  He is kind of cute.. i guess...in a bit of a we…

A Waste of Good Underwear....

Or alternatively…How I got stood up Once, Uh twice, WAIT Three times in one week!
Well....
To say that this week has been disappointing is an understatement.   I have to say about midweek last week I was feeling pretty on top of the pile.   I had dates lined up all the way until Thursday of the next week with some nice gentleman,I had dropped some more weightI had worn an old amazing pair of jeans and looked good!!I had nailed some tricky harmoniesI was learning 2 languages at the same time!I had made a new group of friends in Rome online (yes mom I am being safe and there are girls!), one of whom is a single, gorgeous Italian guy who wants to take me for Aperativo     and a night walk through some of the fountains in Rome! So you know feeling pretty good!

Then Sunday came….I was supposed to go for Coffee with  uhm lets call him Dutch we have been talking for a few months now.  I was actually surprised he got the nerve up to actually ask to meet.     I was supposed to be in Surrey but…

This week in online dating - you are Amazed by Me....

Or..alternatively - How does this chick get all these guys??

I think sometimes people are a bit amazed when they see me and see that I don’t really have a problem getting dates.  Don’t get me wrong this isn’t a post about me bashing myself so get off your soap boxes; but I think we have this media culture that tells us

FAT IS BAD!  NO ONE LIKES FAT!  FAT IS UGLY!! IF YOU ARE FAT YOU WILL BE SINGLE FOREVER!
NO ONE WILL WANT TO GET WITH YOU!



 I am going to have to call bullshit!
I will admit, if I a guy is super-hot, I generally don’t email or wink at him first.   I automatically assume that they will not be interested in me.   It always boggles my mind when a total hottie messages me and tells me how beautiful I am.   I regret to say I often ask them if they have seen all my pictures and know that I am a bigger more fluffy girl.   99.8% of the time the reply I get back is:
OH YES….I love a girl with gorgeous curves like yours.
I have to be honest; I get about 3 times as many messages as I te…
