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.


Who Be Da Next

I wonder as society decays becoming even more violent if Vegas will institute betting on odds of who will get hammered next.


  1. Love that header, 'Fly! That's waaay too much Snow for 4/14/14 ... then again, ANY Snow (other than during that famous 24 hours from December 24th to December 25th every year, that is) is too much snow!
    Thanks for the flashback with the Davies boys, too. I thought Rod Stewart was with them when they recorded Who'll Be The Next In Line. Wrong again, as usual, I guess.
    Can you get tired of snowcream? I recall that as a kid, I never did .....
    Enjoy Yours,

  2. There's all kinds of names but just don't want anymore. May this be it. The sun did come out early and much is gone. Just 44° out. Didn't know that about Stewart but there's plenty more of that. Thanks bj.

  3. We've had way too much cold. Had to turn the water off. Hope to start tomorrow.

    My computer is back....finally!


  4. Surely that's just cherry blossom on the table and chairs.....

    1. I wish - actually that stuff has come and gone replaced with some more. I think we are warming up for good starting tomorrow.

    2. It's like Summer here now. I planted tomato and chilli seeds and seedlings in the greenhouse three weeks ago. All killed by frost. The second batch is doing better though.
