Dinner at Uncle Julio’s

Today was a very successful shopping day for me.  I didn’t set out to go shopping, but ended up staying downtown to go to Marshall’s, Home Goods and Forever 21.  I got a new pair of black Tahari pants, a bunch of accessories and a cute sweater from F21 that looks like it could be from J.Crew!  I also took an impromptu stop into Gap because everything in the store was 50% off today!  Crazy.  I got another pair of black pants there.   Think I’m set on black pants for awhile!  I would show you pictures but I couldn’t find the stuff I bought online and the pics I took are bad/dark.  I also got some new glasses:

What do you think?  I am getting mixed reviews on them so far.   I bought them for 5 bucks at F21 to try out the shape.  I love them but can’t decide if they make me look too dorky.

For dinner, Meredith and I went to Uncle Julio’s.  It is a chain, but they have really good food.  They have some of the best chips and salsa that I have ever had–they serve the salsa warm and I need to find the recipe or a similar one.  The chips are really thin, fresh and perfectly salted.

After eating wayyy too many chips, I ordered the chicken fajitas.  I almost always order them when I go to Uncle Julio’s–they are pretty tasty normally and they were still good today but the chicken was a bit sketch today for some reason.    The fajitas come with guac and pico de gallo, beans, rice and tortillas–a lot of food!! And Uncle Julio’s makes their own tortillas too.  It is extra for cheese and sour cream though which is kind of lame.  I like to melt the cheese on the fajita plate before assembling.

The beans are pretty good but I don’t like the rice–it is kind of bland and blah.  Although, to be fair, I don’t really like rice in general.

Mer got the beef tacos which she said were delicious

The only thing I don’t love about Uncle Julio’s is that it is kind of expensive for the type of food that it is, but I guess I usually get 2 meals out of it so that makes me feel a little bit better about spending more money on a more casual type place.

Sorry for a semi-short post…I’m still debating on if I should go out tonight or not.  Decisions, decisions.

Have a great night!
