We had Speedy Gonzales as a waiter, who often left us speechless. This time we had plain cheese crisps, which were great. Karen's shredded beef in flour enchiladas came out as bean ones. They were replaced by Speedy Gonzales, Jr. I had fried eggs over Spanish rice.
We drove to Yogurtland for make-your-own desserts.
Karen took advantage of all the toppings!
