It's Bad...

My name is Nicole, and I am a Taco Time Addict. I have been sober for 7 days.
I did it, I made it one week without indulging in the above, the most perfect soft taco ever! Or, any of the below, a crisp bean burrito, with ranch/sour cream on the side mixed with a little salsa, the perfect dipping sauce.
And lastly, I have not had one of these:

In my delusional pregnant mind, ordering a beef taco salad covered in ranch/sourcream, somehow demonstrated a bit of self control. Like hey, I'm eating a salad, who cares that it sits in a delicious fried bowl!
Anyway, prior to being pregnant I was a fan of Taco Time, a big fan, BUT... indulgences at T.Time were reserved for just that, limited indulgences. Since carrying my wee little bambina, things have changed. There were weeks when I went twice, only to supplement these outings with homemade taco salads, enchiladas, quesadillas or burritos. My poor little girl is going to come out asking for her milk with a side of ranch!
I also have to laugh at myself, because over the past couple of years Kelly and I have been transitioning to mostly organic food. So, I eat primarily organic food at home (keep in mind organic does not necessarily equal healthy, I have discovered the best organic oreos and poptarts) and then go out and eat the above. Cest La Vie!
I thought this post would be like a victorious announcement, but all it has done is made me want T.T. so bad... hmm, what to do? Thankfully I am unable to leave work, I have a nice bowl of chicken noodle soup to eat for lunch, that I will spend the next 40 minutes convincing myself sounds just as good as the above. And... as long as I don't mention T.T. to Kelly for dinner, I just might be able to make it another day. That's another thing, Kelly shares my passion for the food, and he is super sweet about making sure I eat things that sound good, too sweet really.
Lastly, I have sampled just about all of the menu items, so if you ever need a Mexican Fast Food Critic (I know how high priority these people can be), I'm your gal!

I kid you not...
The first call I took after posting this...
the caller was at (drum roll please) Taco Time.
Seriously.
Who says God doesn't have a sense of humor!?! Love it.

So have you tried the Mac Wrap? It is interesting. 2 tiny beef patties, special sauce lettuce cheese, pickles onions on a tortilla. Just doesn't sound right does it?

I told Aaron almost every single day during my pregnancy with Harper that he was VERY lucky there are no Taco Times in Alaska because we'd go broke :-D

The one time we did visit Seattle while I was pregnant, which was for a long weekend, I think I ate at T.T. 3 times in 5 days.
