I was a bad blogger who didn’t take a lot of photos for this portion of the trip. We were traveling pretty quickly to get home so there weren’t a lot of stops. The hubs needed to get work done when he could, and we were honestly just ready to be back at our own house. I thought that would make today the best day to really just include two places.
Springfield was the quickest stop of the trip. We have a friend who is from there, but he lives here. Anyway, we thought it would be great to stop at one of his haunts for a quick pitstop. The hubs had a wonderful coffee, and I had my cheat Coke of the day. Shhh don’t tell on me. Seriously though, I needed rid of the killer headache I was experiencing. This photo was taken from Mudhouse Coffee. It was a music venue across the street. I just liked the way it looked.
In Albuquerque, we decided to really treat ourselves to dinner. The Standard Diner was on Food Network’s Triple D, and we just knew we were going to love it. Honestly, I’d give it mixed reviews. I’m not saying that it was all bad, because I could have made an entire meal on those chili cheese fries and then some. I will be figuring out a way to make these at home. It was a white cheese sauce over crisp french fries with green chiles on the top. It was just spicy enough but not so bad I had heartburn for days. You ladies remember days when there weren’t enough Tums in the world, right?
The part of dinner that let me down a little bit though were these chicken enchiladas. They were fine, but they just weren’t special. I think I could’ve gotten these at any restaurant in the town. I’ll admit though that the hash browns were great with what little sauce was leftover from the fries. I mean who doesn’t love potatoes and cheese?
