I am in charge of how I feel and today I am choosing happiness.
I work one Saturday a month, and today is the day. My bank organizes a book drive each year, and the most excitement of the day was the delivery of these little gems.
We always get some pretty interesting donations, which I blogged about here in the past, but I was shocked to see Dave Ramsey has a line just for children. He mentions how product placement is used everywhere, from books to toys, to implant ideas into children’s minds. For example, having a MasterCard register for toy shopping carts to instill that credit cards are something people use everyday. I think it’s great that he is teaching life lessons about savings to children too because I know I have learned a lot from him.
After a long week of working, eating out is always a nice option, so Chris and I decided to try a new Mexican restaurant.
Alfredo’s Mexican Café
I am on a tour to find my favorite Mexican restaurant in Oklahoma. There are so many differences between the cuisine here and what I grew up on in Kansas. The downside is I am yet to find a salsa that can even compare. Alfredo’s salsa tasted just like any other down here with its chunky tomato base, but they did offer a corn salsa alternative.
The benefit of the options down here is that you get complementary cheese dip and homemade tortillas!
But the best that comes on the house has to be the sopapillas, and Alfredo’s knows how to make a dessert. Look at these mouth watering little donuts.
For dinner we decided to split the fajitas. It works well for us because Chris likes the meat and I am all about the veggies.
Even though Alfredo’s had a long list of sides, including potato options and corn, I had to go with the traditional rice and beans.
I really enjoyed my experience here, and might even be tempted to do a little catering in the future.
The flavorful salas mission continues.
