Such was the case yesterday as I turned the key to open the slides for packing. I threw caution to the wind and started it anyway. Thank goodness the engine roared to life, but that ! Check Engine light just wouldn't go off. RATS!!!
After ten minutes I turned it off. I figured I would just ignore it ... pretend it never happened. I went back to sewing the binding on this crazy quilt, but my mind just wouldn't stay put. An hour later, I said a prayer, went inside the rig and tried it again. ! Check Engine. Nooooooooooooo .....
I'm leaving ... this CANNOT happen!! Two seconds later, it went out. Boy did I breathe a sigh of relief. I think it took me two hours to get my heart rate back to normal. Funny how two little words can just ruin your world.
Truly, there's not much in the way of packing to be done. Cleaning out the fridge and freezer will be the worst of it. In the meantime, this crazy quilt is the last of twelve I sent to the quilter. Two I donated for her grandson's cancer fund raffle. He's doing very well and should be cancer free for life. YAY!!!
Now for the food review. While hitting the fabric shop which has moved to downtown Hilmar, dairy capital of California, I discovered it was lunchtime and I was starving. What better than Taco Bell! They have a new dollar menu I just KNOW you will be fascinated with.
THIS is a beefy quesadilla. Sound good? Not so much. It was flatter than a pancake when I opened the foil. There actually was some beef in it, about one tablespoon, smothered with that liquid orange stuff they call cheese. The entire thing was no more than 1/4 thick at the THICKEST!! If I were you, I'd pass on this one.
THIS on the other hand, is a beefy frito burrito. Catchy name. If I were to recommend anything off the $1 menu, this would probably be it. Filled with the same tablespoon of beef, it also has rice, possibly some kind of refried bean substance and fritos, all smothered in that same sauce. It's too bad they have ditched the cheese. It was the best part.
I would say this is edible. It was crunchy, squishy and not too bad on the taste buds, except for that last bite. I'm sure I will eventually get the taste of soap out of my mouth. That last bite never did end up in my stomach.
So if you're adventuresome and want to take your life in your hands, stop in at Taco Bell and have something off their $1 menu. Otherwise, pass them by. You won't be missing a thing.
I'll be heading out this morning with everyone in tow. Here's to a safe trip!!
