Day Tripping!

Friday, October 18, 2013

Yesterday, my husband and I had a fantastic day trip and I know that I ate way off track. Everything started out pretty good, but as the day went on I just enjoyed the food along with all the beautiful sights on the country roads in west Texas. I got a salad with a cup of fruit at chick fil la. I love to eat fruit on the salad. Anyway, I put honey mustard on it, thinking that would be low in calories. Ugh! The honey mustard was 100 calories! Oh well, I will just count it. And be done with it.

Next I decided to eat a bite of my husband's order of waffle fries. Yikes! That triggered a eating spree of eating them until they were gone. emoticon Glad my husband was too busy getting out of Dodge and didn't notice.

On to the Billy the Kid museum in Hico, TX we go! We loved the little town and the great people. It is a small town and we recently saw it reviewed on Bob Phillips Country Reporter. We are getting ideas for our mini trips from him and also the Day Tripper show.

We decided to eat at the Mexican restaurant a couple of doors down from the museum. Oh my goodness, I enjoyed the veggie quesadillas, guacamole, salsa , and chips! The chips always get me started on a happy dance to eating.

Anyway, turn out the lights. The party is over. It back to counting and tracking my food today.

Yesterday sure was fun though. emoticon
Well, Hico is not really west Texas but it is west of Fort Worth, so that seems west to me.

And oops, we went to a wonderful chocolate factory in Hico and I sampled the tasty chocolates.
Enjoy your day. I will too!

    Thinking of west Texas to be over El Paso way, I sure was wondering what you found so beautiful to look at in that part of our country. emoticon Although your description of Hico reminded me of some of the lovely little towns in New Mexico - not all that far from El Paso.

My beloved MrV & I so enjoy day trips - at times with just the two of us & at other times with friends who enjoy such outings. We also enjoy over night trips & we have a nice list of trusted B&Bs to stay in on such trips. What I do is pack a picnic lunch & snacks to be assured that we have wholesome food to partake of & then we have our tried & true restaurants where we are assured that we can enjoy our evening meal without concern of getting off course program-wise. When we head to "new to us" territory, we do as much "homework" as possible, so that we have a good idea as to what is on offer that will fit our needs.

"Keep Tripping!" & God bless you with safe travel!
