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.

Shaking My Head/Not Worth Thinking About Too Much

In particular this one that the Denver Whore Post supports zygote crazy man for senator over entrenched Dim Udall. How can educated people take that position and by doing so they also support making abortion illegal? That's where this man and people and papers or what have you who support him are at - it's just that simple. Colorado showing it's own brand of exceptionalism and it's hardly worth giving a shit about because this is what just as many want as those who do not. Actually that sucks a hind teat.

LOCALLY
Stopped and read the two local papers and learned the following. Not bitching/complaining/judging or a damn thing - just saying. This in a town of 3000.

Two cases didn't get to court but will. One for child abuse resulting in death. The other child sexual abuse by a person of trust in this case the father.

Unfortunately and sadly after a nine month investigation a well know local man and business person was arrested for the bludgeoning killing of his wife.

At the city council meeting a resident complained about the police not enforcing a restraining order. Turns out they had and put the offender in jail. He was released because the jail was full and they had to make room for a more of a nasty bastard than him or maybe it was a her. Who knows - don't make a shit bit of difference.

In a bit going to Pueblo to buy meat basically as again just a few days ago brought home for maybe the 5th time in a year tainted meat. The way it is and has been for a long time and we're not talking just meat.

Weather is great and it's very pretty out with the trees changing and the backdrop of several mountain ranges topped off with the white stuff. It will hit 80 and time for shorts now. Life is pretty decent even with the bull shit. Note the header picture.

Have a good one !!!

  1. I need a good place to buy good meat. Wal Mart and the other stores are yucky. It's sad about the violence there. Reallys sad.
    Love your header!

  3. Ooooh my...that header is wonderful. BF took one of his to Moran Meat Locker this year, so I haven't had to buy anything. Consider myself lucky.

  4. I'm unclear how family's can afford to eat beef. It was a really nice day again today and the view remains the same. Thanks TMoon.

  5. "topped with the white stuff", sounds pretty. I don't do meat any more, a little beef or chicken broth in some soups is it, OK once every 3 or 4 months I have a chicken sandwich or a small serving of beef. I suspect it's less than two pounds a year the last 2 or 3 years, I don't miss it or crave it. I like fruit vegis nuts beans and soy milk. It's cheaper than meat.

  6. The Denver Whore Post sounds like an interesting publication.
