I've Been Tagged! My Favorite Things

My girl Military Mom tagged me today! WooHoo! The meme is for five of my favorite things, so here were go.

Burro de la Roqueta. Oh. My. God. Or should I say Ay. Dios. Mio. I eat these when I am visiting my folks. The description on the menu is as follows:

El Burro A La Roqueta (soft flour tortilla filled with delicious shredded pork, grilled onions topped with melted cheese and pico de gallo. Choice of rice or beans).

It really depends on who is cooking the food on that particular day. Sometimes you can really taste the beer (yum!) and other times it is really bland. Just the fact that they dump a ton of cheese dip on it makes it my ultimate favorite. I would eat it three times a week if I could. The only downside is that they only offer rice or beans. Stingy bastards. Though after doing a little internet searching it appears other restaurants will let you have both. I did not even know that other restaurants served this dish. Looks like I will have to start a local search.

Raisinets. I have loved these since I was a kid. I started eating them again when I was preggo and have not stopped since. I almost fell on the floor when they came out with the dark chocolate variety, but have to say that I really could not tell much of a difference. I guess because I like really really (did I say really) dark chocolate I would just as well go with their original product. Raisinets are the only milk chocolate I will eat. I always keep a box on hand here at the house. LittleBird has started to enjoy them as an after nap snack. Though we do not tend to let her eat candy, I figure a handful of chocolate raisins isn't too bad of a compromise.

Voyager. Yes I am a total dork. Every day I bless the execs at Spike TV for giving me my daily Janeway fix. I make a point of explaining to LittleBird that girls can be captains. Girls can be in charge. Every time I talk about Janeway my dad has to give me his whole Captain Kirk lecture. I don't care. Janeway is where it's at.

Babybel Cheese. This is my breakfast. Every day. I have a giant piece of Swedish knäck, butter it and cut up a circle of BabyBel cheese on top. It is similar to what I had for breakfast when I lived in Sweden and it is something that agrees with my stomach. I have never been a morning or a breakfast person. I usually feel pretty queasy if I eat too early. So I buy these at your favorite bulk grocery store and don't look like a liar when I tell my kids that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and that they have to eat it.

Chai Latte. Any brand, any powdered form. I have not yet found my favorite, so I am open to suggestions. I use milk instead of water to make it more rich. This is how I got started with our "girlie tea" with LittleBird. I would make a cup of my chai latte, we would sit on the floor together and take turn sipping out of my mug. It was the start of a great tradition.

So now I am tagging Patois, BellaDrama, Latté Girl and Blue Momma. Let's see those favs, ladies!!

I'm a hot tea lover myself, but my tea kind of tastes like liquid candy (hehehe)! Thanks for playing along, great faves! I'm more of a Next Generation girl myself, but since I've seen all of them, I tend to watch Scrubs at night now instead. Have a great night, and hopefully you won't freeze like me!

OMG!!! I love Babybel cheese and Chail Latte, too!

I'm with you on the cheese & I like Chai tea Latte. Do you like the tea version?

Not Afraid to Use It said...

Yes, I do like the tea version, too. But I still end up putting tons of milk and sugar in it. LOL A friend of a friend worked in some coffee house and I've got bags and bags of loose-leaf chai. It's going to take me months to get through it all. As a matter of fact, I may have to go and brew some now...

Blue Momma said...

I'll do this this afternoon! I'm afraid I wouldn't fight you for your favorites, though, with the exception of the cheese!

I am a huge Mexican Food fan. I would eat it every day if I could!

Thanks for tagging me. I like.

That Babybel sounds right up my alley! I am going to have to try this! I am not a sugary, breakfast kind of person. This might work!
