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.


Rested I Think

The days of summer are a catch 22 for me because when the weather does turn to the best it can be at least for me you hustle your ass off all day long and don't go to bed until it's dark and then get up well before 5 after awhile it catches up with you.

It's been like that always for me and I can't operate on less than seven a night. I was pooped yesterday and came home took a nap ate supper and went to bed and stayed there till damn near 6:30.

Now it's 9am and headed to the river. There will be some fish caught today I tell you.

Have fun today with whatever you may be doing.


  1. Don't forget that I like my trout cooked over an open campfire.

  2. You lucky son of a gun...

    Been fishing all my long,long, life and never caught a thing... Catch one for Tim will ya..

  3. "I can't operate on less than seven a night"- that's Me.
    Sleep is a wonderful mechanism. If I don't sleep seven hours, then I move like a drunkard, and have to take a nap to complete the quota.

  4. Have fun fishing sweetie!!! My son is doing some weird shit called 'noodling' lately instead of traditional fishing...it scares me as you can drown doing it...and in OK there are plenty of nitwits.

  5. I presume you are after trout! Yum!! Turning green with envy here.

  6. I know many had high hopes here and as for myself I wasn't coming home till I produced. As it turns out I got lucky and happy to come away with what I did.

  7. If I'm tired Duta and take a short nap I wake up stiff and it takes an hour or so to full be awake.

  8. Okiehoma-noodling. Is everything ok out there Dusty?

    Briefly what is noodling?

    And Tim the one and only trout is for you-you betcha!
