How far would you go?

Those who know me well, know that when I go home for a visit I crave food from two places. And I can't end my trip without visiting these places a few times.

The first place is El Sol. And I always order the Mexican Pizza with a side of sopapilla's. I love this dish. I ate it twice when I went home for a visit in September last year. It is amazing, and tastes soooo good.

The second place I have to eat is the place where I got my 2nd job at just 14 years of age. Taco Time is AMAZING!! I truly love this place. Granted it isn't real authentic Mexican food.....but it is good. The reason I have to go to this place, is for the Tater Tots, Soft Taco's, and Crisp Bean Burritos . I could almost live off of this stuff. I am soooo in love with the Tater Tots at this place. I think almost each day that we made the drive into town from my parents......Chuck would take me to get an order of Tater Tots (mexi-fry). I think he was just trying to hush the crazy pregnant lady, but I'm not complaining.

So the point of my post here, is that this Crazy Pregnant has been craving Tots for a few months now. I NEED TOTS!!!!! I have been trying all day to convince Chuck that I needed tots. I really wanted to go to Sonic and get tots and dip them in my ice cream. The only problem with this......is that the nearest Sonic is 20 miles away. and with traffic, it takes almost half an hour to get to the location. I don't really see a problem with this at all, but Chuck seems to think that it is to far to go. I have begged all day trying to get him to go....but the answer is always no. I even got my friends in on it, and they all agreed that for a pregnant lady craving.....it's not to far to drive.

I even looked up how close a Taco Time was......but it is 299 miles away in Oregon. I will agree that....that one is to far to drive for tots. So I looked up the closest Arby's for some curly fries.....but the closest one is 17 miles away, and we would have to pay on the toll bridge. I looked up the nearest Golden Corral, and the closest one is 50 miles away and we wold have to pay on the Toll bridge. I was feeling a little defeated.

So how far would you drive for a food craving? I thought that being near San Fran and that being in California food places would be a lot closer than they actually are. But alas....I have to drive a bit for most things I like. So I will ask again.....How far would you drive for a craving, and is 20 miles to far?

Love you all

  1. Well you probably already know this but on 3 separate occasions we have driven 120 miles there, and 120 mile back just to get me pinkberry frozen yogurt! So ya, a 5 hour round trip with DC traffic isn't to far for us.

    (If I were you I would have just driven myself to get tots!)
