This is Bistek al la Mexicana a common dish found many places. There are several places I get this some better than others but all real decent! Kind of a tomato based sauce with generally pretty tender pieces of beef and a fair amount of it. The rice is pretty generic but the frijoles can be something else. This also includes as many fresh made in front of you tortillas you want and brought to you with a smile. Something like this costs around 50-60 pesos or $3. The squeezed as you watch orange juice is 20 and brings the price up a bit but worth it. Nothing in the States I've ever had compares to this not even close plus it'll cost 7-10 smacks. I don't know what I'm going to eat when I return. It will be an adjustment as I do this so much that is go into Puerto Vallarta on the south side and have me a excellent lunch with "real" Mexican food not the slop I get back there. I do not plan on eating out much at all only at maybe three select places. Pricey yes but worth it because it's so good. I threw away so much money last summer eating way overpriced shitty food. Several times the food got thrown away as well. The whole of Mexico is an eating machine I tell you. I'm gonna miss this.

I feel good and and think the higher temps and humidity contributes to that. It's the same every time. After a month or two you realize and say " Hey I feel pretty damn good!"

Just as important I believe the food made fresh with wholesome fresh ingredients as well contributes to that. Get off the bus in town the food smells everywhere make me hungry just like that.

Note To Grover Norquist: This Is Why We Have Government



You remember that smug bastard, don't ya?
All braggin' and shit about how the Republicans were gonna slash and burn government programs to save money and all that happy horseshit?You remember the line,

"I don't want to abolish government. I simply want to reduce it to the size where I can drag it into the bathroom and drown it in the bathtub."

Yeah, I have news for dickwads like him, SOME government activities you don't fuck with, kinda like the inspectors who are supposed to make sure the food we eat isn't fucking contaminated and shit like this below doesn't happen;







Notice I didn't try to warn you of graphic cruelty?
Because I want you to remember it and I want you to remember assholes like Norquist who make this possible.

I want you to put this on the long list of reasons why we need to dig every fucking Bush sympathizer out of our government, because they are killing us, our children and our planet.
And they don't fucking care.


Update:
In case you didn't know, this video resulted in the largest beef recall in U.S. history, 143 MILLION pounds
