I have been craving Ensalada de Nopales for the longest. I usually buy my nopales (cactus) from the farmers market and cook them and then make my salad with pico de gallo. Today was one of those days where all i could think of was NOPALES. So I visited a taqueria near my office. I knew this La Favorita on Franklin Blvd. served nopales in their salsa bar. You don't find these at many mexican restaurants.
I sat at a table near the window, listening to mexican music. I was alone but content. I'm not a big fan of going to a restauant solo. As I ate my nopalitos, the waitress brings me my vampira. Isn't it gorgeous? I was one happy chica. I could not finish my vampira, so I asked for a cup and will have it later today.
After my most satisfying lonchesito, I went in search of lottery picks for tonight's drawing. After the 3rd location, I purchased $10 of quick pick numbers.
I know the odds are against me. But hey, it's just fun thinking about what I would do with that kind of money. Like they say, you gotta play to win...
Who says you can't eat healthy at a taqueria?
