It was hot out all day, so we didn't want to drive far and just went to the closest decent place. It's actually pretty good, though, if you order the right things. Like, their basic blue plate Tex Mex is kind of meh, but if you get the Mexican or Cal Mex style stuff, they're really good. It's a super kitschy place, like they have bas relief paintings and stuff, and sometimes mariachis. And they put a giant sombrero on you if it's your birthday, if that poor lady at the table next to us is any indication.

I had carne asada with beans, rice, tortillas, and guacamole, our friend had almost the same (except with spinach and onions, and she always gets a side of green chile everywhere they have it), and Matlock got a big burrito with mushrooms because somehow, that restaurant--the one with the kitschy paintings and sombreros and mariachis--has the best mushrooms ever.

They also have really good agua de Jamaica, which I keep trying to figure out so I can steal their ideas. I'm thinking they might actually put cranberry juice in it.

I wish we had a good Mexican place near us. The one closest isn't bad, but it's not very good either. Most of the Mexican places here bring out the sombrero for your birthday too. :mexican:

The steaks were so tasty last night - just a little salt and pepper, nothing else. I'm going to make a pound cake to go with the strawberries I just bought. Other than that I have no idea what we're having.

A while back we had some leftover olives that were just a little too bitter for eating staight, so Sou made some olive pesto with them and froze it in easy to use amounts. Tonight we used a couple portions and had some very nice olive pesto pasta.

Tonight: teriyaki pork tenderloin, rice, broccoli and cherries

Last Night: this mushy kinda meat purported to be turkey in a grey, congealed, sticky, pasty gravy with a dry crumbly bisquik lump of dough on top. :vomit:

followed by a chocolate pudding with a thick layer of scummy, skin on top, which tasted like banana - but they said there was no banana in it.

I was going to make an enchilada casserole, but Safeway delivery sent me green chillie sauce instead of enchilada sauce. At least they had the chorizo so there's that. I guess I'll have to make it work.

Harissa chicken with shallots, rice, and a green salad with yogurt dressing.

I have no idea how this chicken is going to turn out, but I'm too tired to worry about it.

I googled Harissa Chicken, looks great - all in one pan kinda dinner too, I like that.

Tonight we are having meatloaf - we decided on that because we were going to make hamburgers but we are trying not to eat bread - so meatloaf it is. But strangely, I noticed the Mor-man had bought a loaf of pumpernickel bread yesterday, so I'm really confused.

I am making garbage curry out of some chicken, spinach, peppers, and potatoes that I have to get rid of, plus garbage salad with greens, plus some more of those peppers and cucumber I also have to get rid of.

I guess I'll make fresh, unused rice, though.

I GUESS.

bey grilled up burgers on the grill and we ate those with some buns and condiments. Other people ate some too, because they are here playing cards. Well not real cards, magic the gathering cards.

You guys, we are being sorta social. Demented and sad, but social.
