Four tacos later and I'm feeling the need to take a nap. Obviously I'm old.

Cabeza was A+++. Super tender, beefy, deliciously salty.
Same for carnitas. Nice and porky.
Chorizo good but a little dry.
Lengua good but a touch under-seasoned.
Wish they have salsa verde because while I like salsa roja of every stripe, I can't get enough of tangy salsa verde. Some avocado salsa or guacamole would have been nice, not to mention that there should always be radishes!
Best tacos I've had since moving here, though. I'll be going back in spite of how long it takes to get there.

Omg. Stop.

I should probably delete her, actually.
That or you're going to have to hide her feed for the next 20 years.

I over share my cats, but, damn, that's a lot of photos.

Thank you for the support.
My apologies to those who have seen this before. (no passive aggressiveness).

Tired of 'me me me' posts.

Tell me about 'you you you.'

True story.

It's a shame. She was the nicer sister of the two... And by that I mean, just slightly less evil than the other... Or perhaps just better at hiding it.

Lawl. Delete.

I know this isn't the hair board, but how is it that my hair actually looks decent today when I was running so late this morning and gave it so little time and attention? Did I use more or less gel? Sigh. I'll never figure it out?

I think I'll get my friend a tortilla press in addition to the pizza stone. One because I know he'll like it for making tortillas, arepas, pupusas, and dumplings. And two, because mine is in NY and I'm really missing it right about now.

Mmmm...Pizza. I've never seen the appeal of eating stone pizza. Always chips my teeth.

Flour tortillas need to be rolled out with a pin. I like using the press to start them, and cut back on the rolling, plus they help produce a round shape, but they must be rolled out thin, thin, thin and a press can't really do that so well.

Exactly.



Okay, I am done posting for the day. It is taking several minutes (and times hitting refresh) for threads to even show up. That, and I am all typed out. I want to lay on the couch and watch mindless television.

DH's grandmother makes her tortillas like that too. She rolls them nearly see through but they turn out thicker. She throws them right on the glass flat top stove to cook them. :drool: Sooo yum. Other tortillas cannot compare.

When I am at home and so mad I don't have any other re-course I just groove myself to the bathroom.





I foresee a dance coming on tonight.
