Noms of The Week #9 (July Edition)

Okay, bear with me people. I know it's been months since my last NOTW. So to get things back on track I've decided to go back in time and show you what I ate in July.

July was an amazing month actually, because I got to travel across the western side of the United States. So I'll be showing you some of my eats from the trip!

Here we go!

  4. Guacamole Dip(a pile of tortilla chips, guacamole, salsa, pico de gallo) also @ Ruby Tuesday. I barely made a dent in that pile of chips since I had ate 1/2 of that salad beforehand. I was craving avocado so bad though, so I honestly just used about 1/3 of the guacamole and just topped it on the rest of my salad and ate the rest of it. I only ate about 8-10 chips.
