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.


Today's Caddyshack


  1. I've been out there when it's thundering and lightening, but when the flashes get too close I head in.

  2. OF, you run/own/manage a golf course?

    kewl beans...

    i never played...i've hacked the ball around a bit, but never got the stance and the grip and all...

    did i ask you? where did you get the foto of the bears at the door?

  3. I was watching a friend of mine one time cutting down a tree in his front yard. After repeatedly ignoring my warnings, he dropped that tree right on his girlfriend's brand new car. I think that's what ended the relationship.

  4. So do I PM and you know as well as I in the southwest it's those wispy clouds that don't look like much are the ones that will kill you. What I find funny is that my friend didn't see a bit of those flashes. They were at least 25 miles away and it was perfect when we were playing.

    If its a bigger tree Gramps if possible a little pressure with the tractor just to be sure is a good thing. The giants I wouldn't touch and we have something like 230 that have to be removed because of beetle kill but not this year because it will cost thousands.

  5. You're just like me. If there is water in sight, reachable or not, out come the scratch and dent balls retrieved when looking for my stray or misaligned shots into the woods. Although I wonder if really effects my confidence in my swing, I'm still debating that.
