Thank you! It's all going to be happening soon, I love being able to pick dinner from my own yard.

Fennel, lime, orange, olive oil, salt and chilies. It turned out great, but I forgot to take a picture of the finished product.

Back to Mexicantown for some tacos al pastor:

Image

Image

This time, I hit up Taqueria Nuestro Familia which is in a pretty decrepit looking building. For a buck and a quarter a taco, you can't really go wrong though.

They hand make tortillas here, which is pretty outstanding.

Still, the al pastor tacos don't taste as fantastic as they did in Mexico City; they're good, just not as good. I think I'm chasing a taste that I just will not find in Detroit... I don't know that they marinate and spit roast them all day here. Maybe I'll try the carne asada or carnitas next time...

I made chicken tinga, served on tostados with some grated jalapeno havarti and avocado.

Although I used 1/2 the recommended amount of chiles in adobo, it was still too hot for Mr_S. He put plain yoghurt on his to dull the pain.

I love the flavour but will have to put in just the merest hint of chile next time. Or have separate pots and Mr_S's will have a fraction of the chile while mine has the normal amount.

Looks awesome, Moe. I have a feeling ambiance often adds its own flavor, and so pho may never taste as good as it does in Vietnam, not tacos as good as they do in Mexico, etc

No photo because the light’s all wrong, but I just made rice and beans.

Two Plantain, cubed, fried in coconut oil and set aside.
In more coconut oil, soften an onion and a green pepper for 10 minutes, add 1tsp cumin, 2 cans black beans and a cup of vegetable stock.
Season, add the plantain again, simmer for 5 minutes, add cooked brown rice.

Serve with a salsa of tomato, red onion, avocado, lime, cilantro and home made roast pineapple ghost pepper sauce.

There’s enough for everyone for two meals. An instant classic!

I didn't eat the duck, but what I did have was very, very good. That wasn't the exact menu, there were more options at the actual restaurant. It was hard to choose!

We dropped $1.400 on 6 people. I'm pretty sure that's the most I've ever spent on a meal (and wine).

Yeah, the beans were disappointing. I should have asked for something different. That style is pretty typical around here, but there are usually other options. The margarita was pretty damn good though. The second one was even better.

Jesus nines, did you actually eat any of that? Looks atrocity.

Not all that often I agree with Moe, but in this case we are in complete agreement. I presume Nines found those pictures on the internet somewhere and they are not old family favs.

Those look great, DCC.

Dinner: caught a cold over the weekend so The Vegan made me veggie sinigang, a sour tamarind soup, Filipino cure for the cold. Had okra, eggplant, water spinach, radish, green plantain, onion, tofu, string beans, and a few other bits in it. Served with rice. It's something I like a lot.

Now I remember why I take the time to put things on sticks and make proper kebabs. Turning individual veggies on an indoor grill is a pain in the ass!

This is all marinated in lemon, oregano, and garlic, as is the chicken I will grill next. Probably served on top of rice, if anything.

Vegan is out of town for a few days, so I made a giant hamburger. Probably about a 3/4 pound beef patty. Jalapenos. Raw and grilled onion. Pickles. Spinach. Mustard.
