Tacos anyone?

Sunday, July 22nd, 2007

We are at work the other day talking about places to go eat. One of the guys, Ben, says how we need to try this place called Rolandos Super Tacos. Based on other reccomendations Ben has made to me like Josephs Bakery (this place kicks major ass!!!) I figured I better give it a try. Ben says how they have these really big tacos and how I might not even be able to eat the whole thing, but that I shouldnt order 2 of them for sure. Today I decided to have Rolandos for breakfast. They open from like 8-3 on sundays I think so I head over there. Its about 13 miles or so from my house but I dont care, its about the same to get to Joesphs too. I get there and its a seat your self place (I dont like that much becuase I hate wondering around looking for a place to sit). I find a seat and someone promptly brings me out a bowl of chips and 3 kinds of salsa. The salsa was hot, hotter, and damn thats freakin hot. All 3 were really really good, and best of all they were served warm (well hot really, right off the stove). I love salsa served this way. Im looking though the menu and I find a taco with my name all over it. I think it was called the Taco Grande. It was a large taco where I got to pick up to 5 or 6 toppings to go in it. I got eggs, bacon, potatoes, sausage, and beans. It only took a few mins to come out. This is what they brought me:

I nearly fell over. I couldnt even pick this thing up. The fork and knife were a must have to eat this giant. This taco kicked major ass and it was really cheap. My total bill with the tip was well under 10 bucks and I tip heavy. If you are in San Antonio I highly reccomend you stop by Rolandos and get you a Super Taco!!!

Turkey time is coming soon!!

Well its nearly time for turkey. Every year my brothers moms side of the family has a fried turkey Its always deep fried in peanut oil. Every year for the past 5 or so years I have gone over to eat some of this tasty bird. I love it.. The meat is always so juicy and tender, unlike when the turkey is baked, its generally a bit more dry and not as tender (at least in my experince). Since the age of about 10 or younger I have known I had an allergy to peanuts. Nothing at all had ever happened to me when I would eat a PB&J. Once I hit about 22 I started to notice when I would eat one or even a hand full of peanuts I would have a stomach ache though, now at the age of 26 I get down right sick and have been known to start throwing up and stuff… This sucks because it looks like this will be my first year in a long time to have to pass on the turkey.

I know several other people who happen to hate peanuts but they could eat them all day, one of them wont even touch peanutbutter.. why cant she be the one with the allergy instead of me.. it wouldnt matter to her anyway since she hates it anyway.. oh well.. life goes on!
