Some iPhone photos from yesterday morning and the very spicy breakfast I chowed down. Gaah! 🔥
Hi all! Going back to the Linq walk the other day, on the back wall of Chayo Mexican Kitchen you’ll see all these crazy-eyed skulls staring you down whilst you eat! Each skull is unique as far as I could tell, and you know I had to go for the shots after eating my yummy lunch. I asked permission of course as usual and the place was almost empty anyway. The full colour version is the original. Click a pic, looks better bigger. 💀
Yummy! Super fast and simple to whip up! I was considering heading up the street for a greasy breakfast but just didn’t feel like leaving the house just then so why not create my own version of wrecked eggs -n- taters? It’s the same breakfast but it’s already paid for and I never need to tip me! And I’m not a cheap tipper either!
Well, sort of. I had a pound of beef thawed that needed to be cooked, and some canned kidney beans and diced tomatoes left over from my last pot of chili. Better to have too much right? So I threw this half ass chili meal together and pounded down most of it! And it was kind of an angry meal too. A distraction from what I awoke to, freshly awakened. My bank told me I have an overdraft!
Ummm, no. Not possible. Without mentioning numbers, it was no where near zero. Basically leaping out of bed I grabbed the laptop and pulled up my bank. The reason for the overdraft was obvious. Seems the ex wife had deposited her alimony check when I told her specifically yesterday that she needs to wait until I say it’s OK to make the deposit. Thanks for the apology Miss X but…
My text this morning asked her – did you make the deposit? her: Yes. me: I told you to please wait until Monday! her: I’m sorry, I misunderstood you. me: Yes you did but it’s OK, I have an overdraft of $77 dollars. her: Do you want me to send you money? me: No, I’ll manage. (as my blood pressure rises)
And that was the blunt end of that text exchange this morning. And the reason I whipped up that meal, a release for some angry energy. It could be worse of course and I’m glad the alimony is less than six months from being completed. I tell people it’s three strikes, I’m out of the marriage game for good. I’m not marriage material and will remain single going forward, it’s not worth it.
Oh 2018 – what surprises do you hold?
Nah, not the pot you smoke! I’d say this is my best pot yet, the balance of water, veggies and noodles is right plus I’ve added a couple bouillon cubes for some extra taste. Yeah, it added some sodium but the taste is much better. Yum! This pot is not quite at boil yet, cooking time is only about two hours.
The latest batch. This one is a bit more mild than a couple weeks back, I used a mix of hot and mild powders, beef with a skosh more fat and added almost one entire white onion, finely chopped. Yum! And some better quality tomato sauce and beans too, it really makes a difference. I hope your weekend has been as tasty!
Rather than go to my favourite restaurant for breakfast after fasting for a blood draw since last night, I went straight home and whipped up this tasty breakfast. I ran out of Olive Oil, hence the taters are not browned up. Using butter isn’t an option so off to the grocer for a refill. I was ravenously hungry by the time I got back home! Yet another Wind Storm has settled into Las Vegas Valley… Hold on to your hats and anything else loose!
