Doris Day meets Lady Gaga
Yep. But we've been in Panama City Beach during not only Spring Break, but Bike Week at the same time, and it was fine. Get in the hullaballoo if you want, otherwise there are plenty of quiet places to be.So I guess you'll be moving on before the spring breakers descend?
I'm definitely having fun with my margarita tour, that's for sure!We've been bar hopping and eating in restaurants since Bann got here because we have to cram a lot of SPI into a short week. Over the weekend there was an artisan fair at Isla Blanca park, which is right on the Gulf, with crafts and Mexican stuff to buy and food trucks. After that we came back and went do dinner, then for an early evening swim.
Today we're going on a horseback ride on the beach, which I'm really looking forward to!
Well I am worse for the wear after those three margaritas yesterday. Up all night, bleah this morning, it's ugly. And it's not like I was slamming them or doing tequila shots. I just can't drink anymore, which is sad because those waterfront bars beg to be utilized for their intended purpose.
You and Monello can drink, I'll drive the drunk bus.
I could live off of fresh tortillas alone I know your pain. I blame my mom, we were stationed in Corpus when I was a toddler and she used fresh hot tortillas from the stand outside the HEB to amuse/placate me while she grocery shopped every week Seriously nothing better!I've been trying to eat low carb for awhile now. My problem is tortillas.
Places where real Mexicans live and enjoy an appreciative audience have the best flour tortillas in the universe. They are light, thin, tasty, and grill up into the most sublime culinary treat imaginable. At restaurants they are made fresh, and you have never - ever - eaten anything better in your life.
Low carb tortillas come from the factory and have a shelf life of like 8 years. They are an acceptable substitute and a decent breakfast taco holder, and when I don't eat a real tortilla for awhile I'm happy with them.
But when I DO eat a real tortilla.....
When I'm in Maryland or Florida or, you know, Montreal I don't even think about it because those places don't have an audience for good fresh made Mexican food. Texas, on the other hand, does. And how. In fact, it's mandatory - just like good BBQ is mandatory. If your BBQ or Mexican restaurant is merely good, you will go out of business within a few weeks because Texas is not playing when it comes to food.
The thing is that I'm pretty sure that if I were in a horrible accident, my dying thought would be, "Damn it! I should have had the real tortilla!!"
So that's what I'm thinking about as I sit here guiltily munching on my egg and sausage taco made with a real flour tortilla that I only have because they were out of the low carb ones when I went to the grocery store.
