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.

Pardon Turkey Is Coming Straight Outta The Cornfield This Year

This year, the subject bird will come from Iowa, and particularly a bird that has been raised in Hamilton County. 13 birds have been separated to their own pens and Nathan Hill started working with them, to get them accustomed to being around people, handled and to sit quietly on a table. The birds currently are 20 weeks old and weigh 42 pounds.

This will be a warm up for the turkey doing the pardoning as no doubt he will cover up all the death and destruction left in his wake. Personally I'm not touching a 42lb turkey that grew to that weight in 20 weeks. These birds have gotten pumped up with so many chemicals I'll just say no thanks.

  1. That is a good sized turkey for 20 weeks. They no longer range them but keep them close like as broilers so they gain weight quick! We use to raise 3 pound Broilers in 9 weeks or a 20 to 25 pound turkey in 20 but any way you look at it I would rather have a lobster!

    Any chance that it'd be so amped up that it would go for Bush's liver?
