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.


The Internets Or Not

Ever have a paper route? Two week ends ago the internet service went down. Get it shot in from seven miles away. Had to work to keep after them but it was repaired fairly quick. Last week it out about a day because the guy on duty was 150 miles away. This week end it was a day and a half and no attempt was made to correct it. The fault each time lies and is just inside the door of their business and easily fixed. They don't give a shit. There will be some changes made in this account but that is another story.

People who don't get their Sunday papers many of them anyway get a bit testy if it don't show up. I had a bunch that didn't show on Sunday. Another Hater kills at will in Wisconny. Glad I missed that till just a bit ago. Who'll be next in line for the Freedom Seekers. Would have liked to have watched the landing on Mars. A good thing - what a nice change.

Company is coming. This guy put me up and fed me oh soooo good back in the cornfield in May that I have to produce. Pressure on! Up to Pueblo this morning. Local sweetcorn is excellent. Got plenty. Plenty fresh sliced bacon and pork steak cut at a butcher's the way I want it for a change. We are ready to pig out. The tomatoes are from Grand Junction as the ones here are ready yet. These have been pretty decent. I'm hungry now.

Probably won't be around much the next few. It will be good to have a bit interaction and get out a bit. Been sticking real close to home this last month.

Later - have a good one.

  3. My corn is stunted, severely. The ears are half the size they were last year. I had so much of it last year I was giving it away. Now I'm just hoping my second and THIRD plantings will produce something.

  4. Thanks guys. We actually went golfing yesterday and have had sweet corn from several different places in the area and it has been very good. It's sooo dry.
