Drink Two of These and Call Me in the Morning

Boy-Child#2 begins softball season next week and Tootsie will pretend that it hasn't been two weeks since she last updated her blog the family makes a night of what will be known as Tootsie's Preparedness Awareness Program. First stop, a new restaurant in town. The Farklepants' are very excited about this new discovery because A) it isn't a chain restaurant, and B) they take reservations. Unfortunately? Everyone else in town is also very excited about this. This is the Farklepants' second visit to Sabor, and still smarting from their original visit they made without a reservation and the days long wait for a table, Tootsie called ahead to reserve a dining time of......9pm. Because it was either that or 4:30pm and at 4:30pm, Tootsie is still full from lunch.

Tootsie doesn't waste precious time getting down to business with her prescription comically huge margarita.

Which generates a heightened warm and fuzzy feeling for a certain Mr. Farklepants. She is keen on him. And asks you to ignore his mouth full of chips face.

Tootsie reiterates "comically huge".

Three baskets of chips later.... they bring a fourth - and the Farklepants aren't ones to kick it out of bed.

Dinner that's not only mouth watering delicious; it's also fancy. Tootsie's sister had the Enchiladas de Mariscos that were stuffed with crab, shrimp, and little slices of heaven.

Tootsie had the Chile Relleno stuffed with tender chicken breast. Also known as Mmm-mmm served up with a side of GOOD GOD! And Tootsie is happy to report that since she's not accustomed to eating a large meal past 7pm; the heartburn she endured was pleasurable.

I was wondering where you'd been--I thought maybe you'd fallen into that giant Magarita.

That food looks great!

Jennifer H said...

You should warn folks not to read this on an empty stomach. Or when there aren't any margarita ingredients in the house.

(That food looks so good.)

I heartily approve of extreme margaritas - they make the world a happier place.

calicobebop said...

Mmm, margarita... Is it too early to drink one now? :)

g said...

Yummmmm!! That margarita is big enough to bathe in!!

Karen said...

While the food looks absolutely fabulous, somehow licking the screen turned out to be very disappointing.

JCK said...

Have SO missed you. I could use one of those Monster Margaritas! And it isn't even JackO'Clock yet!

Please let me know if you'd like to do an interview!

Swirl Girl said...

Looks great!
A donde esta?

Anna See said...

Margarita and Chips? Yum!

Drinking my tea and free-basing green m & m's just isn't having the same effect.

Mr Lady said...

Mr Lady would like to join you on your next visit, if that's something you'd be into.

She delights in extreme hangovers.

First things first YAY Tootsie's BACK! And secondly I must eat at this restaurant. Sadly, I'm on the opposite coast.
BUT Tootsie's BACK!!!

One Reader said...

mmm... little slices of heaven and reservations? Can too much of a good thing really be that bad?

Michele Renee said...

I got a brain freeze just looking at the photo. A photo of Mr. Farklepants????? I thought that was a no-no. Great looking family!

EatPlayLove said...

delightful, very delightful.

Get out of my head - I was just at Sabor last week and we are making a date with them to do a review on our site. The food is incredible there and well those Margaritas are off the charts!!

Dawn in Austin said...

Glad to see you back. Looks like a fabulous dinner! Hmmm, I do believe it's happy hour here. Margaritas, anyone?

Dr. Mom said...

Mmmmmm....that makes me hungry. Extreme margaritas sound good too!

JoeinVegas said...

There you are, yes, probably too many (or not enough) of those margaritas.

Martha said...

Yummy!! That Margarita looks like a spa tub! Drink and Eat up Farklepants!!

Saucy said...

That place looks like a little slice of Tex-Mex heaven and the Margarita is just Saucy's speed.

9 pm is the perfect time to eat. I mean drink. And eat.

I don't see salt on your rim. I'd have to have it with salt. Although I'm not sure I'd be getting the rim to my mouth by the time I got to the bottom of that glass.

So the 2nd one would have to be no salt with a straw.

Yum.

400 MARGARITAS!!!

No way, I had heartburn too! Aren't we cute?

Stu said...

I may have to drive all the way down from Washington to have some of that food (and the mining pan sized margaritas would not be too bad either)

Manic Mommy said...

Yes, the margarita reminded me of those champagne shaped hot tubs in the Pokenos ads. I'd dive right in.

MommyTime said...

I have much envy for your margaritas and fancy food, which looks amazing and makes me remember with fondness the best Mexican fusion food I ever ate, ever, in Austin, TX. MMmmm...mmmmm....
