Qdoba vs. Chipotle

Jenni and I had a hot date in Winston-Salem Saturday night. We dropped the kids off at the grandparents house and went to Winston to shop and eat. You know you live in a small town when you have to drive over an hour to go on a date. We ate at a new restaurant in the mall parking lot called Chipotle. They had just opened so they were still figuring out what they were doing. It was almost identical to Qdoba, which is one of our favorite places to eat. So, Chipotle or Qdoba, which is better? To me, I like Qdoba better because they had more to choose from, but Chipotle was pretty dang good.

I like the new trend of cheap and good. It’s nice to go out and eat and get something that is better than fast food, but doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. It’s really crazy to go out and spend 50 or 60 bucks on a meal for just two people. I guess I’m getting old and frugal, but food is food and I don’t have to eat somewhere fancy when Jenni and I go out together. After checking out the deals at Gap and Old Navy, we hung out at Starbucks and just enjoyed the time alone. Life is good, and I’m thankful every time we make the effort to get away from all the craziness and spend time falling in love all over again.
