PINK IS GOOD.....

Hello, ya'll... 

Mr. Sweet and I LUV going to ROSA'S CAFE & TORTILLA FACTORY..

They have TACO TUESDAY that is SOOO successful...
3 crispy beef tacos
refried beans
spanish rice
two flour tortillas with honey....
all for less that 4 bucks .

I am pretty sure almost every Texas Tech student goes there on Taco Tuesday.


The building is PINK....


They make the BEST flour tortillas you've ever put in your mouth...


Mr. Sweet had his taco plate...
he is SUCH a good sport when I want to take photos....
well...
he's just a good sport, period.


I had Nachos....one of my favorite mexican dishes...

He wanted to take a photo of me but....
I was wearing the same black and pink shirt you've seen me in a thousand times
and I just couldn't put you through it again....

you know how it is with a favorite shirt.....
I reach for it nearly every time we go somewhere....
:)

PINK gumball machine...
pink gumballs
and pink, carved flowers on some of the chairs.

Booths are pink....walls are pink....

I brought my SWEET TEA home with me in my cute PINK CUP...

That's me in my Hawaiian PINK SKIRT and when the light hits me,
I do the HULA HULA DANCE....

which, by the way is TOTALLY RANDOM considering this is a post about MEXICAN FOOD.

 One more PINK....


This is one of our dear friends, TY....
the sweetest fella ever.
He is the epitome of
REAL MEN WEAR PINK.

XOXO, bj

Oh thank you again for bringing back the most wonderful smell in the world...when I was very young my first job was working for a small neighborhood mexican restaurant..when I would work in the mornings, I would come in early and you could smell the tortillas coming off the tortilla machine and the ladies making those wonderful tortillas, corn and flour...we would sell them in the front...The smell is the most delicious smell ever, like baking break...yummy

Cute post, BJ! Happy Pink to you and Mr. Sweet.

Linda said...

We have one in Fort Worth....maybe that's where Mother and I will lunch next week! My sister's grands love that place and she and her husband would take lunch from there to them at school on Taco Tuesdays.

Lynn@Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

They need to open a Tortilla Factory in Philly, it would be a big hit! Happy Weekend:@)

Susie Jefferson said...

Totally with you re Real Men and pink, lol. The tortillas look wonderful. Happy PS from the UK!

Beverly said...

I wish I had been with you. What a pretty, fun - and delicious place.

I officially appoint you The Pink Queen For The Day. Happy Pink Saturday my pink and darling friend.♥♥♥

Vee said...

Awww...Mr. Sweet really is a honey and all with that cute grin, too. You couldn't put us through it? That sounds like John with his purple striped shirt or his mustard plaid one. Cute post...made me grin!

Balisha said...

Wish they would put a Tortilla Factory in our town and it could be next to the Cheesecake Factory that I've been wanting. Oh dear...I would be in hog heaven.

I am now going to google to see if they have a Tortilla Factory remotely close to me.

(And I giggled about the favorite shirt. I have one too, and it always seems to be the one I'm wearing when the camera comes out!)

Pondside said...

What a great meal - nothing like that around here. You had me drooling on the keyboard!

Beth @ E. lizard Breath Speaks said...

i totally agree with you there - real MEN wear pink. so true. ( :

have a great weekend.

Salmagundi said...

I always love some good fresh Tex-Mex! Several years ago as we drove across Texas, I made it my mission to try a different tomatillo sauce in a different restaurant each day. Sally

Becky said...

Love all the pink,BJ. Mr. Sweet is a real sweetie for posing :)
Your nachos look really good. I like them too.
Have a wonderful week-end. Blessings, Becky

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Yum, the Mexican food sounds so good. I love the stuff!

I'm going to show this post and the last pic to my hubby. I bought him a beautiful coral shirt a couple of years ago and he still hasn't worn it. What's funny is the same year, when they have their annual meeting (elec coop) with the consumers that he has to attend, they give the linemen shirts to wear for the occasion and guess what color his shirt was? Yep, coral!! LOL!!

Enjoy your weekend!

Audrey said...

Looks like you and Mr. Sweet are having a good time. Love all the pink. When we go to our Mexican Restaurant, I most always order chicken nachos, only a half-order and still cannot eat all of them. Never eaten in a Rosa's Cafe, as we don't have one here. Thanks for sharing your fun evening.

Looks like both those guys are comfortable enough in themselves to let you take pics and post them, pink shirt or no!

I love pink, tried to convince myself that it wasn't very fashionable for a while then thought who cares, I like it. Don't you just love getting to the point where what others think doesn't bother you any more?
I enjoyed your post with all the pink.

Oh my! That sounds so delicious. I immediately checked but no locations near us. Sigh. I will keep my eyes for it if I ever go to Texas though, that's for SURE! Thank you and Happy Pink Saturday

Betty Luckhurst said...

What fun! Sounds like you had a great time with the Pink Man!

Pink is good.
But red and white are better. Just saying. Kisses.

Rettabug said...

Ooo, I ♥ Nachos, too, but without those HOT peppers...no sireee, can't handle those! I tease Earl's Mom, Lynn, all the time about all the hot stuff she adds to her cooking.

Loved seeing your honey chowing down on some delicious Mexican food.
When we used to visit my baby sis in AZ, we would OD on authentic Mexican food. She knew just where to pick up homemade, fresh tortillas. I wonder if she gets them in Maui now?? LOL

Hugs & Happy Sunday, BJ,
Rett

Lynn @The Vintage Nest said...

Oh BJ, I loved this pink post. And I love crunchy tacos too! :) That plate of nachos looks soooooo good! How are you? Hope these are well and dandy. :) Happy happy Pink Saturday xo

Patty Antle said...

What a fun place to eat. I just love Mexican food, especially nachos! Mr. Sweet has a sweet and fun expression. Pink is definitely one of my favorite colors!

Dewena Callis said...

Delicious looking! It suddenly makes my supper tonight look unappetizing.

I love men in pink shirts!

I love pink, period!

SavannahGranny said...

You did an awesome pink post perfectly. Say that three times fast.
Love that plate of real mexican food and Mr. Sweet is adorable. Love to you, Ginger
