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.


Yup We're Crave'in Bacon

It's true - the whole crew wants bacon. Personally I've been craving bacon on a regular basis ever since last October when out in Utah we fixed this bacon that made the whole campsite reek all through the night. It was soooo good. I dont eat that much of it but every once in awhile gotta have some.

So I asked the crew and they're serious about da bacon as well. Andy didn't think 3lbs was enough because it's good cold too. So four pounds it is.

Sean is picking up this bacon he says is the best along with donuts. Timmy is bringing orange juice. I'm going in early to start cooking and when it's done everyone is going to have a smile on there face. This crew is the best ever I tell you. 

Tara is coming to take me to lunch at 11:30.

Caddyshack bacon and a free lunch on a beautiful fall day in the Rocky Mountains. Yup it don't get much better.


  1. Sounds nice. I had a craving for bacon this summer and must have eaten BLT's every day for a week. Every once in awhile nothing else will do.

    Enjoy that bacon and your lunch!

  2. OJ instead of fresh squeezed apple juice at this time of the year?

  3. Well Mont we do have an apple tree and the apples taste pretty good. There are more than ever before. They're not very big but it's no bad for growing out of a rock.

  4. Not very big ones are best, not too much water so the juice in the apple isn't diluted.

  5. I could dine with a republican if bacon were being served.
