'My wife’s car died at her office in Mountain View so I had to pick her up. I put the dog outside noticed some coupons for a place she mentioned called Los Portales so I grabbed them too. I set the Adt home security alarm, spent 10 minutes wandering in a circle looking for my car before remembering I parked it on the street.

My wife was glad I brought the coupons. It was late and Los Portales is a favorite among her co-workers. The coupons were for free dessert. The restaurant was cozy and crowded. The hostess knew my wife and we were seated right away. Walking in was like going to a friend’s house for dinner. There was a sulky teenager doing homework in an empty booth, there was a baby sleeping in a carriage by the kitchen and Sal the owner came out to shake our hands. I knew the food was going to be good. I could already tell by the smells as we sat down to eat some chips and salsa. My wife informed me we were splitting the house special; a chicken and steak fajita platter. It came out sizzling hot and when the waitress squeezed the lime over it I was practically drooling. Our plates came with rice, beans, salad, corn tortillas, salsa and guacamole. Every bite was heaven.

The free dessert was good too. We had some flan and coffee. After a huge and satisfying meal, the broken down car did not seem so bad.'


  1. It's so comforting to linger over a great dinner. A delicious meal is the perfect prescription for curing a bad day, especially when someone else cooks the meal for you :)

  2. Wow--I could really go for some fajitas right now. That sounds like my kind of restaurant. A bad day sounds like it ended well! My husband would have never thought of coupons though!!

  3. Yum Fajitas!!! I found you on TPRP and I am now your newest follower! I hope you will stop by my site and follow me too. I am only 6 people away from 200!!!

    Thanks, Mellisa

  10. I love fajitas. That would be a great evening for me. Except, maybe, for the broken down car.
