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.


Wanna Fight

The Empire's record of sabre rattling is legendary and starting war's for lies is one of the world's best. We is ready again.

The U.S. military is now “fully prepared” to deal with any Iranian effort to close the Strait of Hormuz, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said Wednesday. “We are not making any special steps at this point in order to deal with the situation,”  “Why? Because, frankly, we are fully prepared to deal with that situation now.”


  1. After weeks of relatively lower gas prices in California, Barry had to go and open his piehole and blather about how the U.S. will never allow Iran to block the Strait of Hormuz.

    Gas prices leaped .20 cents a gallon.

    I put $30 in my SUV yesterday and see the prices have come back down.

    When x-perts said a war with Iran would lead to $10 a gallon gas in the U.S., I guess they were correct.

    Just threatening war caused prices to go up.

  2. Paid 2.88 yesterday. There's so much money waiting to be made I hope a bunch of these 1%er's croak from the excitement pondering those possibilities.

  3. $2.88? Wow. I paid $3.559 at Costco and this is low for Southern California. Gas prices here are truly criminal.

  4. $3.14 to 3.23 in the KC area. Today..

  5. The 2.88 may be a bit of a misrepresentation in that most were at 3.05 and was surprised to see the other so low.

    Was going to buy it locally. I saved 2.20. Sorry but that's a bunch.
