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.


Boehner And OTC Agree

Overdone Boner had this to say -

It sure is and we agree. What we will never agree on is how you will have accomplished that feat.


  1. The America electorate does NOT vote for something. They vote AGAINST something.
    The spineless dems have no one to blame but themselves when they lose BIG in the mid-term and beyond.
    They have once more shown that they can not lead, and or govern.
    Instead they chose to be Mr.&Mrs. Nice. Bipartisanship is compromise. Compromises lead to sin, and stagnation. The Republicans learned long ago how to shove legislation down the dems throats. And the dems swallow it hook line and sinker every time.
    We deserve the best government that money, and corruption can buy.

  2. And that's exactly what we're gping to get RZ. It won't be pretty.

  3. There ya go again, pickin' on people of color. Orange-Americans everywhere are outraged ;).

    If the Rethugs take over again it'll be because the Democrats spent too much time crapping their pants over the possibility of being criticized by Rethugs, and not enough time beating the Rethugs silly and getting the shit done that they was elected to do. But then, that's what ya already said :).

  4. That's me alright Tux. We discriminate and are bigoted to all equally including ourselves.

    A long time ago this fellow was taking these supplements that were supposed to make you appear to have a tan. I think it may have been Vitamin C of some kind. In any case this guy was a damn orange I tell you. Talk about abused-it must have hurt.
