Hi Y’all! Earlier this week I was shopping at my favorite store, Big Lots, and I came across another interesting item. I found chips made of beans. The chips were a new take on the typical tortilla chip. Instead of using flour or corn, Beanitos uses beans. The nutritional facts stated that they were high in fiber, antioxidents, and protein. I thought it was interesting so it was worth the two bucks to try. I brought the chips home this weekend for my family to try. I didn’t tell them that they were made of beans or that anything was different and surprisingly they really liked them. I told them the chips were made of beans and they said that they would have never guessed it. I tried the chips for myself and they were really good. I could tell they were a little different than the “normal” tortilla chip, but with some salsa and queso, you couldn’t tell a difference.
Hi Y’all! Some of you may know from my welcome post that my first taco was from Taco Bell and I loved it. I didn’t know what I was missing out on for so long. For several months after discovering my love for Taco Bell, I ate there a lot. It was my favorite fast food restaurant to go to. Time went on and I started eating less and less Taco Bell and I realized recently I haven’t had it in a really long time. So, for dinner one day this week I went to taco bell and got my normal order: two crunchy tacos with just cheese and two Cinnabon delights. That’s when I came to the sad realization that I am not really a big fan of Taco Bell anymore. I ate my two half filled tacos and my overly sweet Cinnabon’s and I was disappointed. The food wasn’t bad, it tasted like normal Taco Bell, but it also didn’t taste great. I’ve tried so much amazing Mexican food over the past few years and I think that the standards for my tacos are a little higher now. But, if you’re still really craving some cheap and fast Mexican food, Taco Bell will do in a pinch.
Hi Y’all! Recently I have watched my first true telenovela. If you’re unsure of what a telenovela is, it is basically a soap opera in Spanish. They tend to have a reputation for being slightly cheesy and overdramatic, but that is what people love about them. My best friend, Starla, used to watch Amarte es mi Pecado when she was younger. Ever since she moved to Louisiana she has not been able to find this show that she loved. Then one day she remembered the name of the show and ordered a DVD of all of the episodes. I heard a lot of hype about this show from her, so I was excited to watch it. I don’t speak Spanish so the subtitles had to be on, but it was still a very interesting show, to say the least. The actors were so dramatic and the outfits in the show were over the top, but all of that was why it was so fun to watch.
