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.


This And That

Spring has finally arrived and we opened yesterday the front nine only. Went and played nine and actually struck the ball well for not swinging a club since October.

There has been an increase of hits here at OTC because of a post over a year old and it concerns a murder. If you google these people there are just two choices that come up that have info and that is here and here. It's just a coincidence actually but it is a bit interesting.

Someone is following this in Beverly Hills and making comments. The first trial ended in a hung jury and was refiled this week. The shooter has retained a very high powered and well known defense attorney that cost big bucks. A rumor here says her daddy is a member of the Bulgarian mafia and I don't doubt it. Kind of fun to watch it play out here but it will be awhile before the second trial starts. UPDATE: It ain't a rumor-daddy is a Mafia type in the old country.

Another poll from the same bunch of crazy's as yesterday. Even though gay marriage is now legal in Iowa these god lovers can not stand it.

Do you favor a constitutional amendment defining marriage as between a man and a woman? Yes

I'm very busy and if I've not been by that's why but thank you for coming by here. OF


  1. I still get hits two years later on my posts about our local District Attorney..and people are from all over the place reading them. Even his ex-wife asked me if I wanted to write a book on him, she would cooperate as she likes my style! Woot!

    The new Sean Penn-narrated documentary Witch Hunt is about our local DA..coincidence? I think not. ;p
