No Grocery Store, Days 273-275 – Peached Tortilla! October 3, 2010

I’ve fallen off the No Grocery Store and need to catch up.  Allergies make looking at the computer screen, nearly unbearable of late.

Day 273, Breakfast was a Kocurek breakfast sausage patty.  I skipped lunch.  Dinner was leftover Kocurek Cazuelas Stew.

Day 274, Breakfast was a Kocurek breakfast sausage patty.  Lunch was at a new trailer I’d been hearing raves about, Peached Tortilla.    The trailer was downtown in my neighborhood, so I decided to go try it.  I ordered 1 Banh Mi taco on a corn tortilla and a Fried Catfish taco on corn as well.  Both were really good, but the Ban Mi stood out.  The flavors were really well thought out and balanced, between heat, sweet and a tiny bit of sour to balance the fat of the pork belly.   I saw a Yelp review of this trailer that said that it was “overpriced for trailer food, like most trailers.”  This isn’t trailer food, it is really good, high quality food; well thought out and well prepared, and it  happens to be achieved in a trailer.  I’ll be back for everything on the menu.  Family dinner was at Jasper’s, and I had the salmon and polenta.  It is always good.

Day 275 – Allergy Hell, and Football Hell day.  I had a Taco Deli Bison taco at the Farmer’s Market.  For late lunch, I picked up Beef Fajitas and Chile Con Queso  from Hula Hut for my parents and their company, and I had both.  Hula Hut has the best queso in town, and their fajitas are good, but I’m not a huge fan of much else, besides the location, the proximity to my house and the lake view.  It certainly works in a pinch, when most of the students are in Dallas, for sure.  Dinner was the Mushroom Ravioli at Blue Dahlia with a friend for belated birthday dinner.  See? I managed to make my birthday month, extend past a month.  And I’ve packed on the pounds to prove it.  Still dialing it back for the days to come and exercising more.
