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.

Yes The Times They Are A Changing

This article in its entirety starts the day off right. The tens of millions who use this plant are sick of the stigma of criminal behavior. The War must change as well!

BRECKENRIDGE — Breckenridge residents voted overwhelmingly Tuesday to decriminalize possession of small amounts of marijuana and paraphernalia under town law. Unofficial results show 71 percent of voters approved the initiative.

"We're done with the days people could laugh off marijuana reform," said Sean McAllister, a Breckenridge attorney and chairman of reform group Sensible Breckenridge.

Tuesday's vote means that effective Jan. 1, people 21 and older in Breckenridge will be able to legally possess 1 ounce or less of the drug. Possession remains illegal under state law, but Breckenridge Police Chief Rick Holman said his department will "still have the ability to exercise discretion." Summit Daily News

The last few days even though it's November have been put the whole month of October to shame. Finally I guess it's an Indian summer. Thanks for stopping by and may the sun be shining where you are at!!

  2. Cheers to Breckinridge, Colo. I learned to ski there 37 years ago. Then left to spend 2 weeks perfecting my style at Keystone. Colorado was the place in the 70's for Corndudes. I'm hoping Colorado regains the sanity that made it so amazing at one time. This vote gives me great comfort that it will.

  3. Huh, you'd think it'd be the People's Republic of Boulder that would do that kinda shit, not Breckingridge. Weird. Anyhow, the whole point of outlawing a weed that grows in the wild pretty much all over the fucking place eludes me, it ain't like the prohibitionist assholes are ever gonna *really* eradicate the shit, it's a fucking weed for cryin' out loud!
