I know what you are expecting. A blog about delicious noodle soup. But, you’re not gonna get it here.
We spent the weekend with Evin and Chantel – the lead singer of the band Nathan has been working with and his girlfriend. I promised them delicious noodle soup on Saturday and a tour of our local Asian Market. We took the tour and then went for a bowl of Pho. They didn’t like it much. Pho is kind of like a religion to my group of friends, but I understand it’s not for everyone.
This post is actually going to be more about delicious Mexican food. We started Friday night with a trip to the local Mexican Market where I was confronted with my age. I ran into one of my parents from school who promptly asked me if Chantel was my daughter. We were both a little offended. When the parent walked off Chantel said, “What, do I look ten years old?” and I said, “What, do I look sixty years old.” Don’t answer that please.
Then we made salsa and fajita tacos.
On Saturday night, Nathan and Evin played an acoustic show. There was also some delicious Mexican food there and some good beers.
We had a rain delay, but most of the storms missed us.
I met some of Chantel’s friends and family and enjoyed the music. Thankfully, the weather cooled off quite a bit.
I also got to meet a girl from my tiny hometown. That’s a rarity in a big ole city. We traded stories about deer camp and family members.
This was a multi-cultural weekend for everyone involved and I still stand behind my opinion that Pho is delicious. But, so is Mexican food.
