I'm Hooked On Sopapillias
I'm also feeling very ill right now. Could I have ordered one order of sopapillias? Of course I could but you know how an addiction works? Whats good for one order is good for two orders right along with the honey and chocolate syrup. One thing good about this hot weather they don't give you any whipped cream or I would be, well you know? When Mel was alive and my girls were still home we occasionaly went to a Mexican restaurant in San Antonio. Thats where we got hooked on sopapillias. They brought them to the table without you asking for them. I guess that was kind of their trademark along with little flags on each table which you could raise when you wanted to get the waitress' attention. In the mean time my Mel passed away, my daughters grew up, got married, and moved away so my sopapillia days were over until recently. When I saw this sign at Chile Bandera Sopapillias 99 cents weeeel I'm hooked again. What are sopapillias you might ask if you aren't from these parts? They are a mexican pastry, fluffy with nothing inside. Pour on the honey and chocolate syrup and you're in heaven. They are about a two x two inch square and here there are four to an order but I'm feeling so deprived today I order two orders and eat them all. John doesn't like them. Crazy man has a fever but I'm the one feeling very ill right now.
