Well, down here there is a differentiation between Tex-Mex, Mexican, and Southwestern......but this Yankee puts them all in the bucket. There are so many options, that I have my favorite places for shrimp tacos, fish tacos, beef tacos, chicken tacos, "specialty" tacos, different types of enchiladas, queso, etc.. The best places are inevitably the cheapest, family run places. We went to a new place in town on Sunday and while thought my fish tacos were rather
, blazergirl enjoyed her chicken enchiladas with verde sauce. It was too spicy for me, but since she spends nine months of the year much closer to the border than I do, she can handle much more than I can. I eat Mexican food at least 2-3 times a week.
Easy 4 mile run which felt like death.....such is the week before a marathon! While blazerman is excited the weather in CdA looks great for spectating, we all know that isn't fun for the race. While I realize Sunday's forecast can change a lot, it appears my second loop on the non-shady course will be sunny and in the 70's, approaching 80. Of course I have been able to train in crap like that over the past month, but that doesn't mean it will suck less.
Blather: When I asked her how her first full day at her engineering internship went yesterday, blazergirl's most notable comment was, "There are a lot of Mikes in the office."
I told here there are ALWAYS a lot of Mikes in the office. (FYI.....they took her for Mexican food at lunch.
Bonus: I feel like I ate chocolate covered insects several years ago. I've had alligator numerous times, so I guess that isn't weird. We have friends who host a wild game dinner every year and I know I had something unique there this year.....but I was drunk and cant remember what it was.
