I wanna learn how to make Tamales.

I do a lot of cooking at home (byproduct of working in a real kitchen throughout college), and learning more ethnic foods is something I always strive to do. I’ve got a few traditional recipes under my belt for Thai, Loas, Indian, and Trinidadian. I make a handful of decent Italian dishes, and of course a bunch of Chinese learned from my mom. But the only Mexican I do is street style tacos, and fresh guacamole and pico de gallo (which is mostly just prep work).
Mexican dishes like Molé, Menudo, and Tamales would be awesome to know how to make. I love traditional Mexican foods - sometimes Tex Mex but that doesn’t count as real Mexican.

4 minute clip leaves a ton out.  Track down the full episode if you can.  It's probably available by logging into the pbs website.  The episodes where she travels in Mexico to show regional differences are particularly good.

Along those lines, Orange Chicken isn’t real Chinese food, it’s Chinese food for the round-eyes. :lol

But I’ll still eat Texmex and Orange Chicken. They’re delicious, I just have no desire to learn how to make them.

Nobody said it was.  What’s next?  Telling us you never use soap on your cast iron pan?  More cooking cliches, plz.  Let’s hear about your knives!   ;)

Posole > menudo, btw.  One of my Mexican friends bitched to me once she was tired of people using enchilada sauce in posole because it was lazy.  My mind was blown... green enchilada sauce and lime juice and you’ve pretty much nailed it.

I actually found a Chinese place with orange beef last weekend, hadn’t seen it on a menu in years.  I recall it got some bad press for being the most unhealthy thing on the menu awhile back.  Damned if it’s not amazing, though.

I'm all about shortcuts when it makes sense. My favorite food is Pho. Pho is traditionally made with beef bones, and lots of time extracting the flavor out of them bones. The shortcut method is to use more beef cuts, in addition to the bones. They are both good, but using more beef cuts costs more. The super shortcut method is to use a Pho cube. Similar to a beef bouillon cube, but unlike a beef bouillon cube, the Pho cube gets you 90% of the way there. I can cook a bowl of Pho in about 10 minutes.

Sometimes I love the process, and sometimes I love the end result. Whenever I can do it cheaper, or make it easier, with no impact to the end product - total winner.

Anyhow.... enjoy your tex-mex. I don't think there is a bad thing on the tex-mex menu.

Damn PBJ.  Whatever they got you on for your trial money sure is making you ornery.  I want some.

I'm still looking for tickets.  I looked this weekend and the prices were too damn high!  My wife said I would have better luck on Wednesday.  Anybody have a bead on where to look and when for low ticket prices?

I think I only left the hotel in a vehicle 3 times last year.  I had my own vehicle and never needed to use it.  Everyone car-pooled and there was enough.

My Air BnB is two miles out so I want to be where I need to be ASAP and I don't want to rely on people to get me where I'm going.  As convenient as it will be Uber is available but I don't want to spend $10 every time the needs arise.

Well, there's absolutely nothing to do in Mesa besides Zapcon and the only restaurant within a mile of the convention center is some ---smurfy--- bar.  See how close your rental is to a rail station, rent a car, prepare to beg for rides every time you want to take a dump in peace, or learn to walk.

You will show up. One way or another. I have a nexusmtz sized burlap sack and a bottle of chloroform.
Officially moving from 'Probably' to 'Yes' (booked), to avoid Mike's scratchy sack!

Damn.  Opt got a 'Hell Yes' when he said he was all booked.  All I got was told that a hooker could hold my hand when I ---steaming pile of meadow muffin---. 

We're sorry we didn't all stand up and cheer
when news of your booking and tickets did hear,
We really are thrilled you decided to come
though in putting our thoughts into words we were mum,
So give us a chance to put an end to this mess:
"Did you see JDBailey is coming?" "Hell. Yes."

You will show up. One way or another. I have a nexusmtz sized burlap sack and a bottle of chloroform.
Officially moving from 'Probably' to 'Yes' (booked), to avoid Mike's scratchy sack!


Not sure attendance is a guarantee of avoiding Mikes “scratchy sack”!!

Damn.  Opt got a 'Hell Yes' when he said he was all booked.  All I got was told that a hooker could hold my hand when I ---steaming pile of meadow muffin---. 

We're sorry we didn't all stand up and cheer
when news of your booking and tickets did hear,
We really are thrilled you decided to come
though in putting our thoughts into words we were mum,
So give us a chance to put an end to this mess:
"Did you see JDBailey is coming?" "Hell. Yes."

 :cheers:

This just keeps getting better. I am really glad you will be there.

Fuuuuuck yeah!
