Happy Holiday Weekend!
The Husband and I got to go on a little date this afternoon – Henry had a playdate at a friend’s house. A midday treat for Mom and Dad! We made a frightening amount of plans for ourselves – we packed socks for bowling, bathing suits for swimming, a gift card for shopping, and knew we wanted to try a new restaurant. Hah! We were clearly excited…
And then we ended up doing just lunch – and it was perfect. We got sucked into the patio scene after our meal and soaked up the last bits of summer heat. I don’t think either of us minded the slow pace.
Actually, we were outside long enough that I felt compelled to slather my entire body in sunscreen. Diaper bag sunscreen for the win!
Our meal was at an awesome new-to-us restaurant called Maverick Rock Taco. I can’t say enough good things about this place – they had a really interesting Mexican menu with tons of appealing and unusual vegetarian dishes.
I got the beet tacos – they were ballin’.
With a side of Mexican street corn covered in spicy adobe sauce.
And let there be flan!
I’m already plotting our return to this restaurant… It was so good – I can’t believe such a gem was right under our nose this whole time.
We’re filling the rest of our weekend with more downtime and more college football. <3 Hope you have a relaxing holiday weekend, too!
