Food and a Good TV Series

Sometimes when it’s mid 70’s out, clear skies, and payroll is over – you just can NOT sit at your desk or a break room and eat the cardboard tasting chicken and rice microwavable meal you brought. Sometimes I just get into the car and start driving and see where I end up. Likely it will be in Donelson, and usually Taco Bell. But I found something a little fresher and somewhat authentic – but on the Tex Mex side. I got a veggie taco since it came with three to get the meal. All of that was $8. But the other two tacos were Pork and Nashville Hot Chicken (wasn’t). The Pork was the best one by far. I couldn’t eat all the tortilla wraps, and it got messy, but I kept thinking about how messy things are usually always the best. I had to save the beans for later and only ate about 1/4 of them. But hey, best of all I sat outside and ate – no bugs, clear skies, and a happy me!

And yesterday I got out again to just be away from the office and out into the pretty weather. I tried to order from Cracker Barrel on line but their site kept malfunctioning. After like 5 tries I realized it wasn’t me! And so a Logan’s salad it was. And it was a great salad with balsamic vinaigrette dressing. I ate it under a shade tree in their parking lot.

George has fed us well at night.

Flounder, egg roll with Chinese Mustard dip, peas and potato soup. That was a lot.

And a chili dog burrito. Sounds weird but was out of this world. And the MUST HAVE here is NATHAN’s beef Hot dogs. Oh my heavens. We had the regular hot dog as well. I just noticed there is pepper on my knife there. Ha. Or some kind of spice George put on them.

So I’m not sure I mentioned or not, but we began watching Yellowstone with Kevin Costner. It’s not free. We had to buy the 1st and 2nd Season. But all in all it was not expensive and we’ll get a chunk of our money back when we resell it at McKaye’s and George will get books, CD’s, games, or movies out his credits.

Anyway, we try to get in a couple of shows a week. It’s very interesting. They will do anything to keep the ranch. Constant battles with the Indians and Developers over the land. And there is a lot of mob like, cartel like stuff happening. I say mob like – there is a loyalty there and a lot of things happen and get covered up. Let’s just say it’s kinda like “Breaking Bad”. You don’t want to mess with them.

Well, I’ve not dived into it. But from the looks of that top News Block there our President and First Lady have tested positive for Corona Virus? I’m sure the Dems love that. I was thinking that in the past most of the presidents were well respected but there’s a chunk of folk out there who will be happy he is sick and that is just fouling out wrong. I hate to hear that and I hope it turns out well. What a year.

Well it’s Friday and October already as of yesterday. Just Wow.

So the video is up and I appreciate all of your positive comments. And I am up a few more subscribers. They say the first 100 are the hardest ever to get. But I appreciate all who have liked and subscribed, gave it a thumbs up and took the time to watch it. It means so much. It takes time for your “people” and “your tribe” to find you. In looking for other vloggers like myself – they are hard to find on YouTube. I was hoping to find a group of us like we did on the blogs. You found your “camp” and could collaborate on things and support and help one another. And subscribe to one another. I’ve searched but I guess I’m not using the proper search words.

So I have to leave early today to go get my sunglasses and get fitted for those where they had to correct the lenses so I could see properly while driving.

So I better scoot on in. We are also going out to eat tonight. I think we are going to start doing an eat out on Friday nights to get in all the restaurants we’ve missed lately.

Ya’ll have a great day!

  1. Previously…the foxes & raccoons added to your video. Foxes freak me out. I don’t know why.
    To be honest, I despise Trump, but I truly wish him well. Maybe this is the wakeup call he needs. We will see how he spins this.
    Your tacos look good. I would LOVE the pork one.
    Hopefully your January vacation will work out fine. That’s a lot of worry for you.
    Anyway, it’s Friday, so enjoy the day!

    It doesn’t surprise me about Trump. He travels non stop and comes in contact with many.
    I don’t wish sickness or bad things on anyone but he is not one of my favorite people and I know who I will be voting for.
    Family is what matters. Jobs can be replaced. I want you to go spend this time with your daughter and new grandbaby. Once this time is gone you can never get it back. I hope your grandson is a good sleeper for your daughter and sil. That was the hardest part as a new mom not getting much sleep. My daughter was a good baby but didn’t sleep all night until she was 2 yrs old. Enjoy your weekend. It is almost here.
    Beautiful weather here. Makes you glad to be alive and I enjoy the beauty of fall colors. I am thankful to live in such a pretty place.

    1. Yeah I’m going. It’s really how much pressure am I going to put myself or allow myself to be put under. And if I work 50 hours extra to cover the week, do I have to burn my PTO. And if so how will I feel about it and handle that.

    Oh Sonya, I’m sorry you are having all that hassle over your holiday dates. I have NEVER EVER heard of anyone working so long hours, I actually don’t think it would be allowed over here. Can you not have words with whoever your responsible to to ask what the situation really is regarding your working hours verses your holidays,..pointing out how many hours you actually do already just to have a few hours in hand for Dr. dentist appointments etc….. Glad though that you managed nice lunches out this week and that your having such lovely weather. We had it reasonable when we were over on the Isle of Wight but since we came home it’s been pretty grim..it’s only 12c/56f and it feel colder with gale blowing and rain lashing down….I’ve had a horrible week of worry about my wee Masy her legs are troubling her and vet has given me pain killers and a joint supplement since Monday but I don’t see any difference so far. Please keep her in your prayers, I don’t often ask for prayers for myself but I am so worried…..have a good weekend

    the food, every single bite of it looks delicious. yum. my daughter burns the candle at both ends too. i know how difficult it is, to get all your ducks in a row, to go be with katy and your grandchild. you just hang in there and i’m sure it will all work out. you have some glorious times up ahead. as for the president. he has not been a very good role model, ridiculing people and saying many nasty things, when he should bite his tongue. no excuse for the behavior. it’s a shame this has happened to him. but i doubt he’ll change. even though this should be a warning. folks on both sides of the aisle are saying prayers, hoping for a positive outcome. it’s in god’s hands.
