Day of Indulgence

Yesterday we decided to go to Hacienda Colorado, really yummy Mexican restaurant in Westminster. We went with my parents because we (the four of us), had received a gift card from Santa.

We started out with some yummy Queso to go with our chips and salsa.

The drinks are really big there:

Then I had a quesochanga….this is basically a chicken Chimichanga with queso cheese.

Kevin had a steakchanga with green chile on top

My mom also had a steakchanga but she choose the queso sauce

My dad had a burrito with the spicy jalapeƱo sauce.

Here is the aftermath….we had leftovers because the meals were so big….

No dessert here…because after lunch we headed to the Chocolate Festival

One of the really cool things at the festival were these gorgeous cakes they had

This one is my favorite:

This is a bonsai tree made out of chocolate…I have the feeling I couldn’t keep it alive either….because we would eat it!

There were some special guests at the festival…there was Willy Wonka (aka Brian Dowling)

And Denise Nickerson….she was Violet Beauregard in the original Willy Wonka film…you remember her, she was the one that was a gum chewer and turned purple from chewing the “dinner” gum, and the blueberry pie.

So it was a good day....we had a great lunch, and lots of yummy cholcolate to sample. Even Kevin said "I think I have just about had my limit of chocolate" For those who know him well, this is saying A LOT!
