The Airplane Restaurant in Colorado Springs

July 25, 2017
The Airplane Restaurant in Colorado Springs, CO

On our road trip we had one day in Colorado Springs.  Before the trip I researched great places to eat and The Airplane Restaurant caught my eye.  I absolutely love airplanes so choosing to dine there was a no brainer! The restaurant has so much to look at inside.  All of the details are incredible. While you wait for a seat you are given a boarding pass.  The employees were  dressed in uniforms that you would see in the airline…

Tamaliza Cafe in Sedona, Arizona

On our recent road trip across the country we went to Sedona.  It’s one of my favorite places but it’s been many years since I was there.  We had a great morning driving from Tucson then we went to check out Prescott before heading into Sedona.  When we would get close to a city my daughter’s job was to find a restaurant that she would like.  She is a major foodie so if a restaurant get’s her approval then we…

Skinny Margarita Recipe

Margarita ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

Everyone has their favorite Mexican Restaurant – and ours happens to be Mexicali Cantina in Frederick, Maryland.  We used to go there every single Friday night, the owner always would come and chat with us and the wait staff all knew us!   We still go there a lot!  Eating low carb, makes going out for Mexican a little tricky!  They now know, don’t bring us chips, but instead, bring us celery and carrot sticks.  We have them pretty trained,…

Oh Yeah! One Bar ~ www.fabuousindeed.com

I am always looking for portable snacks to keep in my purse or when I just need a quick snack. I like to keep them at work too, and like to munch on one like this on days they serve cakes or donuts or something, just to not even been tempted!  Low carb bars aren’t easy to come by, and frankly a lot of them don’t taste that good. I picked up 4 of these Oh Yeah! One Bars recently.…

Ketogenic Diet ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

I started following the Ketogenic Diet back in January (well December 29th to be specific).  Have you heard of the diet.  Here is the Diet Doctor Link and Wikipedia A ketogenic diet (aka: keto) is a very low-carb diet, which changes your bodies fuel source to fat as opposed to glucose.  Normally, carbohydrates found in food is converted by the body to Glucose.  When you intake very little carbohydrate, the liver converts fat into fatty acids and ketones. The ketones pass into the brain…

Chicken Salad Chick

Let me tell you about one of the best chicken salads I’ve ever had.  The only one that comes close is one that my friend made for us for our girl’s camping trip! This weekend my friend BOB and I went to dinner at Chicken Salad Chick.  BOB had eaten there before and loved it.  I’m never one to turn down good chicken salad so I was so excited to try it! I tried the original chicken salad in a…

Double Chocolate Donuts

Double Chocolate Donuts

I was so excited to make donuts again.  I was really excited to make them with my daughter but she fell asleep.  I had already melted the butter and it had cooled to room temperature so I had to go forth without her help!  Honestly, I don’t like donuts unless they are chocolate or double chocolate so I was so happy when I found this recipe from Just So Tasty blog.  Trust me, you will want to follow her instructions!…

BLT Pasta Salad

BLT Pasta Salad

I have to say that I didn’t think I would like this salad because I don’t really like Ranch dressing.  I made it anyways because I knew my family would love it and they did.  So did I.  Maybe I like Ranch dressing a little bit. I found this recipe while I was scrolling through Pinterest for something new to make for dinner.  The recipe is from a great blog called Life In The Lofthouse.  Her blog has a lot…

Uncle Julio's Mexican from Scratch

When I visited Kerry a few months ago we had a fun day planned.  It started with brunch at Uncle Julio’s.  It’s located at Rio Washingtonian Center. The restaurant is beautiful and was very packed for a Sunday morning!  The salsa and chips were very good! Kerry and I swapped some of the items on our plates with one another.  The breakfast potatoes were so good! Another great restaurant in the area is Nando’s!  The shopping area is beautiful so…

Another Broken Egg Cafe

On our trip to Birmingham a few weeks ago we enjoyed a nice brunch at Another Broken Egg Cafe in Mountain Brook.  We had already visited the Botanical Gardens and the zoo and shopped about town so we were ready to eat! It would be easier to tell you what Rose didn’t order than what she did!  She must be growing because she ate a large amount of food!  We had to keep shuffling our plates around the table to make…
