Spam Tacos

Hard to wax poetic about a decidedly proletariat food like Spam.
I have managed to " Pimp my Spam" by literally putting lipstick
on a pig. I think there is a lot of pork in this dish!

The key to this one is using a cheese grater to grate up the chilled spam.
Than you take it and fry it up in a pan with chili seasoning. No need to add
fat or salt as Spam is well endowed with those two items.
I used smoked chedar, and fresh greens to complete the fillings.

The taco shells are the standard hard shell kind.
I finished it of with a bit of lipstick red taco sauce.
I would recommend using the reduced sodium and reduced fat version of Spam.

All in all it is a pretty good taco!

Truck Food IX

Hard to believe that 9 times we have ventured forth and 9 times we have found great food!

This one weekends in Brooklyn like so many of the midtown trucks. After a bit of black space navigating, ( the GPS always blacks out in Brooklyn), we found the Dumpling Truck and the crew got down to business. Afterwords we went to a nice bakery, Sweet Melissa's, and had coffee.
Have a few ideas for Truck Food X...

Carnival Market

This is a short video I edited. It was shot in Mazatlan by my friend and his wife while on vacation.
It is always nice to get away from the hotel and see what's really happening. Lots of fruits and vegetables. Every time I listened to this song I would think of this group of videos and once I located them in the archives it pretty well fell together.

Interesting diversion on a rainy day!
