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.

You Betcha I Wish It Were True

  1. After last night it seems the blues just keep on creepin on. Speaker Pelosi has spoken off the record and says she can't pass health care out of The House without the inclusion of the the Stupak amendment. So your cross guy there is into religious extortion? He evidently is into treating women's healthcare, and, by extension a woman's right to control her own body as though she was property of the Catholic Church. The Robed Pedophile Church of America are flexing their dicks and the Democratic Party are flexing their collective hips in anticipation of taking the high hard one. This healtcare bill is such a joke: is it time to abandon the farce and start over? I'm wondering who Jesus would abandon to back alley abortions and more. The Dems are now the war party and the discrimination party if you happen to be a female. Jesus Fucking Christ! Who will finally put this back sliding sick old donkey to sleep for good? It is high time we went to a real party where the Kool-Aid is treated as an adult beverage and comes with a honest warning label. Memo to Nancy: Put on some steel-toed shoes and start kicking the Stupak backers in their religious balls. Jesus Fucking Christ.

  4. He's a fart smucker ain't he Holte. FYI he's the duck and amp guy and opened a new google address so he can post here and it will be the camperrunamok name that will be used. Been after him for so long but like me he grew up in a cornfield so it ain't easy sometimes. Hope you're doing well.

  5. I appreciate the meme and I do believe that only women should be allowed to decide as to the abortion issue. That being said, abortion is legal in this country and although the ammendment is in the bill when it passes, [to satisfy and give the women haters cover] it will have to be stripped out in reconciliation due to it's illegality. Pick your fights and they are picking them better lately (D)'s and growing a pair because they see the handwriting on the wall regarding HCR.

  6. Lahru you're correct. In politics you have to know when to hold 'em and when to fold 'em. The only problem with the Dems is they folded right after the cards were dealt. Dems still think political questions can be argued and solved on the merits of the argument itself. Republicans use emotion. They are the modern day equivalent to the lynch mob. Dry gulchers and back stabbers, robber barons and pirates make up the leadership of the Repug party. Fuck McLame, BoobieHatch, BonerHeaded and the rest of the miscreants.

  7. Have you noticed that when the republicans are in power they are awful as a government, but as an opposition they oppose. If the Democrats had been better opposition, kicked and screamed at all the crap Bush/Cheney pulled, instead of letting them go into Iraq and confiscate the our constitution, the Democratic Congress might have a pair big enough to brush these people aside.

  8. It's easy to fight back but the dims refuse. Again I think they have been told they or their family will not live long if they rock the boat too much.
