Rich, on the other side, having been influenced by the culture growing up, has a very special place for Mexican food in his heart. He is very particular about the "true" Mexican food. You won't see him at any National chain eatery; in fact majority of places he visits are "hole-in -the-wall" types, where English is not a primary language.
Shredded beef tacos were on our menu for tonight.Rich prepared a beautiful chuck roast with herbs and spices last night, then got up before dawn to get it slow cooking for dinner. Our house smelled heavenly throughout the whole day.
Once the beef is cooked and shredded, homemade guacamole, pico de gallo, and refried beans are on the table - all fresh and bursting with a definite ethnic flavor - I take a bite.
Oh yeah, I can do this. :)
