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.


Chosen Bloggers At The DNC

Ran across this video where SquareState the Colorado blog selected to be on the floor is interviewed. Pretty decent interview about the convention and the role bloggers play in general. Met two of these people in December and saw Johne again this Saturday where we discussed a number of things and not all politics. One was his Mini Cooper S that goes like a sonofabitch. I tell you these guys are sharp and when this thing starts SquareState will be one place I will be visiting a lot.

This interview was done at a Drinking Liberally event in Denver.

  1. Thanks for the kind words. The Mini also gets great gas mileage. I got over 36mpg on the whole trip from Denver to Glenwood back to Denver and we were not going slow. It's too bad so many people don't know the limits of their cars or their driving. I'm still finding the limits of this car (where it's safe to do so)
