Let The Birthday Celebrations Begin

Tomorrow will mark one more turning of the sun for me.  I don’t dare want to say how many times the sun has turned for me, but I am sure many of you already have a pretty good idea.  We are celebrating all week, just the way I like it too.  :).  The celebrations began last night.  I received a coupon for a free birthday meal at 3 Margaritas, a local family owned Mexican restaurant chain.  Their food is always delicioso, and they always serve HUGE portions.  I definitely brought home a lot more than what I ate.  But it was so, so good.  Normally we do not go out to eat all that often, but we have been making up for that lately.  We have been going out quite a bit, and will be doing so both tomorrow and Sunday as well.  Then we will have a lull again, and won’t go out for quite a long stretch once more.

I just love the brightly colored chairs and settings.

Chips and margaritas started us off, as is most often the case when in a Mexican restaurant.

Larry is a big carnitas fan, so that is what he ordered  Carnitas is slow cooked pork.  It was very tender and delicious, just as expected.

I like to order either something that is different or something I cannot make easily.  I ordered the pollo chulici or grilled chicken in a brandy sauce, with spinach, peppers, mushrooms, garlic and onions.  WOW!  It was very good.  I am sure I will be recreating it here at home at some point in the near future.

As always, we thoroughly enjoyed our meal at 3 Margaritas and you will too.  There are 13 different Margarita restaurants owned by the Morales family.   I have only visited two of them, but will do my best to make it to as many of the others as I can.  The 3 Margaritas we went to is in Broomfield, CO, located at 6896 W. 120th Avenue.  You can reach them at either (303) 410-8705 or at 3margaritas.com/broomfield.  Bring your appetite and a friend or two and enjoy.

After dinner, we enjoyed a Flamenco Rock show at our local Broomfield Auditorium.  I love both Flamenco and Rock, but had never seen them combined together before.  It was a good show.  More on that to follow.  Stay tuned ……

      1. Probably not. On top of no wheat, I also can’t have diary, soy, or eggs. Cross contamination is very dangerous for me, so I haven’t been out to eat since I was diagnosed 8 years ago. All my meals have to be made at home. Going out to eat was one of my favorite things to do.
