Manic Monday- Best of 2012 Casa Mama


So I’m going to spoil next week and just tell you that the worst service I received in 2012 was from ZeroRez carpet cleaning.  HORRIBLE!  I’ll retell that tale next week.  This week is about my favorite neighborhood restaurant, Casa Mama.

I am not sure what I like more about Casa Mama, the food, the proximity to my house or the service.  I met up there for a book club meeting over the summer and had fantastic mojitos.  I went there after church yesterday and had fabulous brisket tacos and the best migas I’ve ever had.  EVER.  And I love migas.

You start off with the best chips and a mild salsa in individual cups.  We went for brunch and the coffee rivals Cafe Brazil’s (have I written about that place?  Maybe later this month, my fav).  After you order, they bring out tiny tostadas, about twice the size of one of their corn chips, with beans and sour cream on it for everyone.  The baby couldn’t get enough!

Jeff and Easton shared pancakes, sausage and scrambled eggs.  Easton told us that it was a better breakfast than donuts.  Nothing beats donuts!  Syd and I shared her migas and my brisket tacos.  Baby Q ate all of my beans and the veggies out of my rice.  I am gluten-free right now, so I got corn tortillas instead of flour.  The brisket is so tender and flavorful.  The rice is fluffy and filled with veggies, my favorite Spanish rice recipe.  The migas were so fluffy, filled with tomatoes, corn chip strips, onions, cheese and pico de gallo.  The eggs were so fluffy and not overcooked.  I will get the migas the next time!

I wish I could get some more of that coffee right now.  It was as good as the coffee we had on our Alaskan cruise honeymoon and our family Disney cruise.  I just may call up there and find out what kind of coffee they used!

Some of my other top 2012 restaurants include Hooters, Brios, downtown Plano’s Filmore Pub, Vickery Tavern, Kelly’s East Side and Urban Crust.  If you have a chance, read some of last year’s Manic Mondays.  My Hooters review cracked me up.  Next week I’ll rehash why ZeroRez SUCKS.  And I don’t use that word lightly.

Tomorrow- Tuesday Pinterest Review:  Do the do it yourself detergents work?

Daily Prayer:  Thank you God for my experiences.  As difficult as they were at the time, the lessons are invaluable now.  Thank you for reminding me of this when I am learning something new.  AMEN!

Daily Thanksgiving:  I am thankful for a new year, resolutions, a new beginning, and a prosperous and exciting 2013.

Kardashian Kash:  Can I buy more time?  The days feel too short sometimes.

Happiness Project Update:  For the first time in eleven and a half years, I went up to Sydney’s room and had nothing to point out for her to pick up.  TWO days in a row!  I can finally see progress.
