Heehee, noooo, evil flour tortillas!!!!!!!
(I think flour tortillas have a place, but not in a fish taco or any Mexican-style taco; fusion-y tacos work with flour tortillas, including fried wonton shells! And then there's all the Tex-Mex)

Does he like meat and tortillas?

Man, I could so go for some chorizo, carne enchilada, and al pastor tacos now!

That and bisteeya (damn joepastry). I'm all over the culinary map.

I need you to come to the woods of central MA (almost western). You can teach me all your mad skills ( or even just one or two) and maybe we can convince B to just TRY it!!!

One good reason to only maintain a small circle of friends is that three out of four murders are committed by people who know the victim. ~George Carlin~

In regards to Vagazzling: They just want to get into the goods without worrying about getting scratched up by fake crystals. ~spring1onu~

Mmmm, tortillas! I just inhaled a cheesy quesadilla.

DH isn't crazy about corn tortillas, but I'm pretty sure if Saria came and cooked for him he'd eat just about anything she put in front of him.

xcptnl, your Mr. Picky Pants may have my Mr. Picky Pants beat!




Byron,GA> Charleston, SC> Jacksonville, FL> Guilford, CT> Rohnert Park, CA! A southern drawl in sunny Cali! .
The amount of time from slipping on the peel and landing on the pavement is exactly one bananosecond.
I do have a secret yen for pink in unexpected places. ~ninja dog
I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
Well, freshness is key, especially with corn tortillas. Now that you're in California, you need to inhale tacos. They'll pretty much be guaranteed to include awesome tortillas, though even commercial tortillas are fine when warmed and filled with fillings of choice and eaten hot off the taco cart. Making your own is also very easy. I still have masa harina, and I see tacos de papa in my future once I'm home.
I do plan on making my own tortillas (both flour and corn) at some point. As many flour tortillas as we go through I should try making my own. I really like the ones from Trader Joe's and La Tortilla Factory though.

DH has been wanting to try huevos rancheros and I think he'd like corn tortillas in that.

There are so many taquerias here and I don't even know where to start.

You must also eat lots and lots of banh mi. Minxy's shocking post that she hasn't had one yet reminded me. Lucky Californians.
Pick a taqueria with lots of people, preferably Spanish-speaking ones.

All this talk about tacos is making me crave the taco truck down the street...their tacos look just like the ones Saria posted a link to. Yummy!

BTW, the place you're going for dinner tonight looks really good. It's on my to try list.

AND one other thing totally not food related, the Petaluma Antique Faire is on September 24th at Fourth and Kentucky Streets. Do you have any clue if it's worth checking out?

Must eat Viet sandwich (any kind) soon.

Must eat Ensenada fish tacos soon.

Must eat huevos rancheros soon.

Mom has to come home to make said huevos rancheros. She makes the best ever!

Must have a mollete soon. With green salsa on top.

Must have a hot dog, Mexico food truck style with bacon, tomatoes, onions, jalapenos, mayo, and potato chip pieces.

Must be able to chew soon. (3 days left until I can eat soft foods!!!)

Mix of 3s, thick, coarse, medium porosity

Current hair styling technique: rake with a scrunch at the end. (works with my coarse hair)

Mi Pueblo in Petaluma is my favorite place for Mexican and DH really likes La Azteca, I'd say they are the two most popular in town. Oh and the taco truck, which is always busy, is on the corner of Lakeville and Washington St. mostly in the evenings. (I'm not sure about Mexican food in RP).

The antique fair is huge!! It gets pretty crowded but if you like to browse lots of antiques, it's a fun stroll through downtown.

Thank you for the Mexican places to try (which I usually have NO problem getting him to try since he loves Mexican food), Petaluma is so close it's all the same to me.

My aversion to crowds usually keeps me away from things even though I want to go so I may have to get over myself and just GO because I enjoy old junk.

I've yet to go into any of the places downtown, but when we drive through there I always see shops I want to check out. I have had chocolate from one place and pie from another though because DH stops at the music store on the way home some days and lucky me he's brought me a couple of treats.

I'm not real hungry tonight, but I am cranky. It's been a rough week. Dinner tonight is some Bombay Sapphire on the rocks with 3 olives. I may even have another one for dessert!

Tacos do sound yummy, though.

Parmesan tilapia w/ buttered zucchini
Spaghetti squash w/ grass fed sausage. It was yummy. I've been letting Mom cook too much lately and much prefer my food.
