Since our return from Austin, I've been crankin' out the tacos w/ great success. I bought a suit case at a thrift shop just to bring back a lot of the raw materials. The one thing that is driving me crazy is how to replicate the various salsas that they give you in those ubiquitous little plastic cups with plastic snap-on covers at the taco stands. I don't care if it's red, green or in between; how do you make your own taco salsas? Pico gallo need not apply.
I just don't want to use some stuff out of the bottle. This Maine, if you've forgotten.
Our trip has had profound consequences. I am now looking for jobs in Austin and am applying for employment back in New Mexico. After 20 years, I feel so foreign in New England. I think it is a lot easier to buy a lobster in Austin than it is to find Mexican food in Maine.
