“The great thing in the world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving.”
~ Oliver Wendell Holmes ~
Well as my husband and I spent our last day in Phoenix, we figured what better way to celebrate than to have some great Mexican food. We decided on a cute little restaurant, Aunt Chiladas. It was built in the 1890′s as a supply depot and general store. Now it serves as a one of a kind, great Mexican restaurant.
Hands down, my favorite dish there is El Pollo Fundido. It is a smothered chimichanga stuffed with chicken and then covered in jalapeno cream cheese sauce. Deelish!!!! My mouth is watering just remembering it. And what better way to top it off than with a fresh squeezed margarita.
Now, as I say goodbye to Phoenix, I’ll tell you the rest of my adventure. It started at 4:45 am and progressed into a 900 mile, 13 hour epic drive. Can I just say no matter how “cush” your car seats are, after 13 hours my butt, neck and back felt like I had been involved in 100 rounds of boxing. Painful. But, the adventure did come to an end and when I finally saw this sign I cracked a giant smile and said to myself, “I’m home.”
