I have been working on a story in the Mexican neighborhood, Pilsen, which has the most incredible food. The first time we had family style tacos served on corn tortillas. We watched them cook the meat and then they made a special plate for the gringos to taste which had pork, cow and goat. Today I had 3 bean tostadas that were perfect. It's a nice change from peanut butter and jelly. The salsa was the hottest I've ever had.

I skipped the end of the season soccer picnic, but ended up with the leftovers anyway. Stamey's bbq and slaw. I tried to eat another piece of the cake I made, but it smells like rubbing alcohol now and I think it fermented.

Megan took me to the Farmer's Market Restaraunt for lunch, and I had i giant half of chicken, hot & spicy bbq style, with squash & onions, and fresh strawberries. Megan had squash & onions, hushpuppies, a biscuit, a fried green tomato, strawberries, cucumber salad, and banana puddin. After we bought some produce. I wanted to get a bouquet of peonies, but they were 1.50/stem!

I went to Wild Wing with MP. I had the buffalo chicken salad. Its fantastic. They have this incredible bleu cheese dressing that I just want to bathe in. Its basically salad with cheese and bacon and tomatoes and cucumber and grilled chicken in buffalo sauce( the vinegar based kind, not the thick kind.) Last time they put almonds on it on accident so I asked them to again. So delish. Mp got a quesadilla.

so, what happened, was there some kind of depression style lunch shortage while I was out of the country?

We had a real deamy bbq work lunch today, except the dream was shattered slightly when I realized that they didn't bring the ribs (one crack in the mirror for me) and the mac & cheese (one crack in the mirror for Megan). I still had brisket and regular bbq salad and i snuck in some hush puppies and fried okra and am a total greaser but still. sigh. ribs.

i'm going to try something a little different today and do a future lunch post. in approximately 13 minutes i'm going to take a company truck and drive to chipotle to meet my friend casey for shitty "mexican" "food". i will get the chicken fajita burrito and it will be satisfying at first, and by satisfying in mean filling because those bastard burritos are huge, but i will regret this decision to eat at chipotle later on today. i will also be tempted to get a chocolate chip cookie and will probably give in to the temptation because i've been doing that a lot lately.

i will take the company truck and tell the dude that drove us to the office, the bi-polar guy i work with out in the field, that i have to take the truck to meet my stock broker, which is not a complete fabrication because casey is indeed a stock broker, but he's also the lead guitarist in the nancy drews and we won't talk about stocks and bonds at all. oh no, we'll just talk band stuff.

beware of chipotle, it is an anal-annhilator, a colon-crusher, a rectal-wrecker.
