Arizona

AtoZ2019A Welcome to day 1 of my Blogging A-Z 2019 event. This is the first year for me. Many posts will be short because I have other things to do. As, my Dear Readers, do you.

Among possible topics beginning with A, I considered: assholes (the jerky person, not the anatomical one), anger, angels, aardvarks,  and April (my birthday month!). I decided to go with Arizona, my state of residence to show off things here I haven’t experienced in the three other states I lived in: Pennsylvania, Maine, and Vermont.

Arizona has:

Prickly Plants

Pictured are a very small sample. Every plant around here wants to hurt you. You don’t even have to touch some of them.

Saguaro cactus (pronounce sa-waro. If you pronounce the G we’ll laugh at you.)
Prickly Pear
Teddy Bear Cholla. Pronounced choy-a. The name is a lie. Don’t hug it!

Glorious Skies a

Near Prescott

Chino Banditos!

Meixcan/Chinese/Jamaican fusion served in a funky location–an older strip mall in Phoenix. They have a newer one too but I’ve never been there.

Fake Lakes

Lake Pleasant. Man-made lake with a super cheesy name.
Maricopa “Lake” in my town is more like a pond. Complete with turtle!

Big-ass margaritas!

At a place in Tucson. The name escapes me. 2 for 1 on certain nights! Great Mexican food, too.

This chocolate cake!

Chocolate sauerkraut cake. Yes, you read that correctly. From Haus Murphy, a German restaurant in Glendale.

So, some of my favorite Arizona things. Thanks for stopping by. Come back soon!

P.S. All of the photos except the chocolate sauerkraut cake are mine. And I’m not a great photographer, so…
