New Things (I'm a little slow)

It has been around for quite some time, but I never went there until last night. On the way to a Notre Dame basketball game, Craig and stopped at Chipotle Mexican Grill.

WOW!

The food I got at Chipotle was outstanding. It immediately became my new favorite place to eat. Not only was the burrito big, it was awesome. Just spicy enough to need a napkin to wipe the sweat off my face, but not so spice that my mouth actually felt like it was on fire. How come I waited so long?

Another new thing has found its way into my life in the past few days: Sweet Tea at McDonald's.


I had heard about it but didn't think much of it because we usually make our own sweet tea at home and it's pretty good. So why would I need to pay for it?

Well, we found out from some old friends that McDonald's just gives away sweet tea on Tuesdays throughout January. Yep, totally free.

My wife and I decided to take advantage of this amazing offer on New Year's Day. On our way to Mishawaka to pick up our kids, we stopped at three different McDonald's and each got a free drink each time. That's six sweet teas in one hour! We didn't drink all six, we gave two away.

The tea is actually really good. It's really SWEET, but not too sweet. You should try it - on a Tuesday. Other days it's only $1, which is still a pretty good deal!

My office is about 4 minutes from Chipotle - yes, very dangerous. $6.10 for the steak burrito.
