Blessed Hope-Prepare To Fly!
Fried chicken from the deli, and mashed potatoes & gravy. We did our weekly grocery shopping.
Im really looking forward to my time in San Diego next month because they have the best Mexican food.
Dusted and pan-fried rainbow trout filets and either salad, or might oven roast some zuchinni, tomatoes, potatos and mushrooms to go with it cause that is what we have in the fridge.
Old Town San Diego, which is close to the Marine recruit depot has the best.I had a much more difficult time finding good Mexican food in San Diego than in some other cities. I found Phoenix to be an exceptional city for Mexican food. There are some excellent Taquerias scattered throughout Southern California and I've been to a lot of them. There was a good one I visited several times in San Diego but I don't think it's open anymore. There is a very good one in Whittier CA but the owners and employees are so radically "La Raza" that I'm a little afraid the food they give me might be tainted. The best one I've ever been to, and unfortunately I don't remember which city or state it was in, there was an older lady who made every tortilla to order, corn and flour alike. I was the only non-Mexican customer in that one. She really worked fast. I went back a couple of times after I discovered it while I was in that town... wherever it was.
When I think of San Diego, I think more of seafood bought in stores and prepared at home and Asian Cuisine when it comes to restaurants. There's such a wonderful selection of seafood there. If California had been on my list of states I might move to, I'd of picked the San Diego area for the availability of fresh seafood at low prices in grocery stores that cater to Asians, and more specifically to the Chinese.
I'm pretty good at preparing Mexican food. Mostly beef and pork based. The only time I've used chicken for Mexican food is when I've made enchiladas. I make some carnitas that I think are top shelf.
