Can You Say Ole’ ? WIAW!!

I always feel best when I have a theme for What I Ate Wednesday.  Oh, What’s What I Ate Wednesday?  Well, that’s that wonderful and fun party hostessed by the lovely Jenn over at Peas & Crayons.  When you’re finished here, head on over to P & C to check out the link love posted by oh so many bloggers for your food watching pleasure.  Leave some comments to let them know you’ve visited.  Try it you’ll like it.  Thanks as always to Jenn!

Peas and Crayons

This would be better if I’d remembered to take my camera to lunch at Moe’s on Sunday, but let’s just say…We start with Mexican and end with Mexican.  I had a delicious quesadilla at Moe’s on Sunday.  I’ve never had one there, but it was great…cheese, mushrooms, green peppers, onions and black olives.

Monday while we were out and about, Gail, Alice and I stopped at our usual favorite Taco Bell.  For me, two soft tacos, fresco style which means no cheese or sour cream with beans instead of meat.

Good, filling and possibly the best deal price wise that you can get.  We go there a lot, we know how to count them for Weight Watchers and that certainly enters into our choice of Taco Bell for lunches.

Tuesday we had a plan for an adventure.  When we were in Florida we found Tijuana Flats a great Mexican restaurant.  We checked with their website and the closest to us in New Jersey is one located in Bensalem, Pa about a 30 minute drive from us.  We decided that for Gail’s birthday, we would take the ride.  We were all excited to go.  It’s much smaller than the Florida restaurant but the food was still good and it’s Taco Tuesdaze!

I got it with black beans and “lightened up” which for them means fat-free sour cream and light cheese.  Very tasty.  Of course I gave all of my chips away.  They were eaten by this crew…

Alice, Ralph and Gail

The Three Amigos, as Ralph likes to call us!

I had the interesting experience of going into an Indian grocery store that was in the same shopping center.  So many interesting and different products.  I would have taken pictures, but they looked at me kind of funny as it was.  I’m not sure they would have appreciated photos.

Then we did the damage.  There was a Rita’s Water Ice store in the shopping center also.  Well we were celebrating Gail’s birthday…

I really tried…this was what they considered a Small!!  It was probably the best frozen custard I’ve had in recent memory.  Yum!

Got a great view of Philadelphia on the way home…

Such a pretty skyline!

Now on to the portion I’d like to call What I “Will” Eat Wednesday.  You all know how I love Goodwill.  Here is my recent acquisition.

A quesadilla maker, brand new in the box for $4.99!!  I’m so excited.  It’s like the one that Gail got down in Florida.  I’m looking forward to making some of these.  Ralph likes them and it will be an easy and tasty way to throw together a meal.  I can’t wait to give it a try.  I just have to get some tortillas!

So that’s What I Ate Wednesday from BCDC.  Hope you enjoyed it.  Not as much food as usual, but I’m busy working on my  NaNoWriMo novel.  Be sure to stop by Peas & Crayons to see what’s on the menu over there.  They love company as much as I do!  Tell Jenn I sent you!

Happy What I Ate Wednesday!

  4. Mexican food is my favorite! I don’t need cheese or sour cream but I’ve got to have avocados, so good. I’ve always wanted to try frozen custard, it looks delicious.

  5. Mmm Mexican food, haven’t had it in quite some time, but I know I love it 🙂
    I have always wanted to try frozen custard, must do so before it gets too cold!

  6. I love Philly, Rita’s, and Mexican food. Therefore I love this post! I have so many good memories associated with them!

  7. i love mexican food, it is so darn good!! my mom has that quesadilla maker and the girls love it!! you can stuff so much in it!!

  8. We received a quesadilla maker years ago and never used it.. I wonder where it got to in our last move! Looks like a great find to feed the Mexican cravings…

  9. Frozen yogurt is a weakness of mine. I don’t think I’ve ever had frozen custard, but it sounds delicious!

  10. Frozen custard is AMAZING 😀 Love the mexican eats!

  11. Mexican food is my fav!!
    I have some form of it just about every day… quesadillas, tacos, burritos… it’s all good!!

  12. Ooh, I’m jealous of the Rita’s! By me they close for most of fall and winter, so when they open, I know it’s almost spring.

    • I’m not sure why this one was open, but I was glad. We have a locally owned ice cream shop within walking distance that has such good ice cream but is only open spring through fall. I’m always sad when it closes.

  13. Oh I just love tacos, but I’m a big bean fan :). And that frozen custard sure does look good! Btw, I LOVE the name of your blog – so true! Broken cookies of course don’t count! 🙂

    • Hi Anna! Thanks for stopping by. Glad you like the name of the blog. It came from something I said back when I was a Weight Watchers leader. Everybody thought it was great and I should write a book with that title. Now, I have the blog…thought it was appropriate. Come back to visit again!
