It’s like ice cream without the cream

Our usual after church discussion (after we discuss the wonderful sermons) is where to eat. We are fancy folk. So it usually is places that include Kings, Buffet or Golden Arches.

My daughter loves Taco Bell and has been asking for it for weeks now.

Yesterday, she finally heard the answer she had been waiting for. We pulled into Taco Bell, unloaded everyone and walked in. As I approached the door, I noticed a sign attached to it that read: "We are sorry: Due to the FDA warnings, like many other restaurants and grocery stores, we are not serving tomatoes. We regret the inconvenience."

What? No tomatoes on my gorditas?

Mexican food without tomatoes? That just sounds illegal or sumpin’.

It took us 2 seconds to turn around and head over to A&W Rootbeer.

For information on the FDA advisory about tomatoes and if it impacts you, see here.


  1. LOL Karla!! Exactly! Luckily I have a darling neighbor who grows tomatoes and brings them to me! Woo hoo!!

    I’ve heard about the tomatoes but haven’t seen around here where they aren’t serving them.

  3. The four men in my house are anti-tomatoes so this does not affect them. Now if they ban ketchup – their lives would be ruined. ;o)

  4. I haven’t heard about this yet! Good thing I planted 4 tomato plants this year! Perhaps I should have planted more.

  5. I hadn’t heard about this at all! I’ve been buying tomatoes and eating tomatoes.

    Karla, what no tomatoes! Same thing here at restaurants, salad bars, etc. Have read the warning from the FDA and will refrain from eating them until the ALL CLEAR has sounded. It is so hot here in Maryland; it’s like July and August weather…very humid.

    Yeah, I heard about the tomatoes this’s always something. We have no idea how many times a day we encounter dangerous things and don’t even know it!

  8. It is scary to rule out tomatos right now, isn’t it?! What will it be next?

    Glad you had A & W as a back-up. Hope you had a rootbeer float for me.

    Love your new header/design! And just how many blogs can one woman named Karla have??!!

    I just saw a sign about this at Big Town Hero. Thankfully, I’m not the biggest fan of tomatoes.. but what happens to salsa? That has tomatoes..

    i can imagine that would make the salsa a bit difficult.

    We found that sign at Chipotle.


  12. That is EXACTLY how I feel about it :) We went and got tacos last night and it was just missing that extra sparkle.
