A Few Notes on My Trip To California

Proof that My Stomach Has No Limits:

While in California we ate breakfast at toast. I had a small breakfast, an omelet. Robbie and I both avoided the toast and potatoes because we knew what our day had in store...

First Stop:

Roscoe's House of Chicken and Waffles
I had special #1:
The trick is covering the chicken with hot sauce, then putting the chicken on your buttered waffle. After that, you cover the entire plate with syrup and enjoy...delicious. This place had great waffles and great chicken, we were very impressed.

Stop #2:
Cactus Taqueria
I had a tongue burrito. Tongue is rather fatty. When roasted for an extended period the fat melts into the meat perfectly. Mix in sour cream, rice, beans, onions, pico de gallo and you are in business. Frankly, I am just getting warmed up.
I have eaten 1/3 of the burrito at this point.

Third and Final Stop:

I was very impressed. This was a loose-packed cheeseburger which made for lots of crispy goodness. They offer a plethora of toppings. I had a cheeseburger with mayo and pepper.
The burger was good but I was most impressed by the ketchup cups:
The short sides allow for maximum ketchup consumption. Also, they have Mr. Pibb instead of Dr. Pepper.
After this consumption expedition, we went to the wedding. I ate there too.
Makeshift microphones for Living on a Prayer. Mine is made with a potato.
