I just came home from almost a full week away, having left for Arizona on Monday, landing back in Houston on Thursday and getting right back on a plane headed for New Orleans (for The Blathering) that same night. I finally arrived back home yesterday. Whenever I'm away from home for any decent length of time, I have a tradition wrapped around what I eat for dinner upon my return. I always, always go to Chuy's.
More than once, pretty much this exact picture has shown up in my Instagram the night that I come home from a trip about 10 chips or so in (I am human, there is no way I could wait to dip long enough to take a pic first) and I don't even have to be asked where I want to go anymore.
It's like having that basket of warm chips and creamy jalapeno dip solidifies me being home almost as much as the first time I snuggle my dogs or my head hits my own pillow.
Do you have a traditional welcome home dinner?
