    Buffalo taco salad.

    Iceberg, romaine lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, sour cream, salsa, and 3/4lb of ground buffalo with homemade taco seasoning.

      We had pattypan and 8-ball zucchini squash stuffed with ground grassfed beef/pastured pork, tomatoes, and Mexican seasonings (chili powder, cumin, basil, garlic, and a touch of cayenne). Initially I was planning it Italian, but once I realized that it's Cinco de Mayo I changed the seasonings. Oh, and topped with a little cheddar, though a more Mexican cheese like queso fresco would have been better. My 4-year-old had picked out the "cute" pattypans at the produce stand, and it's a testament to the idea that picky eaters will eat what they pick--she devoured it! Score!

      Now I'm enjoying a NorCal Margarita...mmm.

        Creamy chicken soup, so I threw in a little cumin to make it seem kinda Mexican.

        I think the asparagus kind of cancels that out, though.

                Arm roast marinated in a mexican marinade, beef heart marinated in a balsamic marinade, bell pepper, onion, and zuke, all shish kebabed, grilled, and served with an anticucho sauce. The heart kebabs disappeared before anything else.
                Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

                    Late to the party, but we made a big old plate of nachos with tostones, which we'd never made before but were super easy.

                    I peeled and chopped a couple green plantains into 3/4 inch pieces, dropped them in the deep fryer full of palm shortening until they started to brown just a bit. Put the pieces between two cutting boards and smashed them into chip thickness and fried them again, then salted them liberally with Himalayan pink sea sauce.

                    While I did that, the GF browned a pound of US Wellness Meats pet food meat (90% 65/35 ground beef, 5% liver, 5% heart, all from grass-fed beef) in a pan with a bunch of chili powder, cumin, cayenne, garlic, and other nacho-ey stuff.

                    We laid the tostones out on a cookie tray, and covered them with the beef, jalapenos, shredded cheddar, and sliced black olives. Melted into delicious under the broiler. Then served with copious amounts of salsa, guacamole, and sour cream.

                    Super starch day for us (I think plantains have similar carb content to potato), but totally worth it. This is a special occasion meal we definitely plan to repeat.

                      I went to a bar-b-que; the host grilled up a ton of carne asada, and it was fantastic. About 5 people brought guacamole and chips, so I'm glad I didn't bring that. I brought a bowl of cut up papaya and mango seasoned with cilantro and lime juice.

                        I love making pineapple salsa with cilantro and lime juice, sooo good on hot days.
