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.


Such A Dilemma

The Supreme Court could hand President-elect Barack Obama a delicate problem in the coming days: What to do with a suspected al-Qaida sleeper agent who is the only person detained in this country as an enemy combatant?

Spare me brain child for I have a feeling Obama will be able to figure this out quite nicely with out your dumb ass speculation.


  1. all i gotta say is they need to look out for obama's safety

  2. I agree! Funny but I said the same thing in response to the analysts analyzing Obama's financial policy before he can state it as President! I will post it tomorrow but anyway the fools are stupidly trying to sound important and keep their jobs going!

  3. I just saw you at Dusty's! By the way that picture looks like the Colorado area, love it!

  4. I think he would be able to resolve the situation quickly and efficiently with little speculation.

  5. 40 miles south of Pueblo Jim. It's the ranch. Later today I have to slap a kiplinger for the same type of thing. Many of us would make better pundits than these assholes.

    Yea Torrance-make that a double look out.

    He can do that Edward because he has a brain.
