Money talks and sexual predators walk.

That appears to be the anticlimatic end of the #MeToo story arc, which started with Harvey Weinstein, and is set to conclude with a multi-million cash settlement ending effectively all civil cases against the former Hollywood mogul.

In other words, for every dollar Weinstein's alleged victims receive now, his lawyers will get two.

The fried fish was actually ok, but overall not the best. I suppose that's what I get for ordering them at a combo American-Nepalese restaurant. I usually order from the Nepalese side of the menu which it pretty good.

A couple of summers ago we went to the Taco Truck Showdown... 130 taco trucks from up and down California's Central Valley. First one I had was stunning. Handmade (corn), everything fresh and from scratch, not sure what the meat was because I just said "surprise me" so could have been carnitas or lengua, can't remember. I would have had more but did you see the part about 130 taco trucks? I wandered around and tried half a dozen more, most were good, delicious, but none were up to the level of the first one. The winner, which against all odds (literally) was one of the 6 I tried, was a greasy carnitas that was over-salty and anything added was added by the customers. So most people were eating it without any salsa, cabbage, nothin'.

So anyway, by scientific review, fewer than 1 in 100 tacos is worth a damn.
 

I hear that 90% of everything is crap.

We have several good taquerias in town, so I go to one of those for my taco fix.  Most of the restaurants are$10-15 for 'street tacos' and you get two or three $1.50 tacos and maybe some beans and rice.  My new favorite is called taco book for reasons I haven't yet figured out.

I was kind of surprised NY was so eager about that acquisition but it makes sense for what they need.  I'm more surprised they let Gregorious go - apparently that was to make room in the budget.

I'm still trying to get over the 1 inch downsizing of the diameter of the damn things that happened a few years ago.  That really pissed me off.

Why can't they just leave the size alone and just raise the price ?
 
The corn tortillas do seem a little smaller than they were years ago, depending on the brands.  One local grocery chain in particular (Food Lion) carries a pretty large selection of Mexican and other Latino products and brands, and some of those tortillas seem to have maintained their size.  It seems like the wheat tortillas come in about 6 different sizes.



 

There are about 9 different sizes of wheat and 4 of corn. Street Taco Size isn't a size, but a local place figured it out that the small size tortillas are more expensive than the old 6-inch or 5-inch whatever size so they had their son literally use a cookie cutter to make street taco tortillas. I guess they were throwing away the scraps but the really needed to use them in chilaquiles. If they did breakfast that would be awesome.

I'm with Kurt tho because "burrito size" is pretty unlikely to accommodate any actual burrito. And the ones that are like 3/16" thick are tasty and good with curry but useless for burritos. They need to be about 20" and super thin.

I didn't realize that tortillas would have to be sweetened at all. - sugar or fake sugar.  I guess the wheat ones are not as sweet as the corn ones or it may help them rise.  And yes, that Splenda stuff tastes disgusting.

 
Real tortillas aren't sweetened, of course, but removing some wheat starch and replacing it with fiber must have left them tasting like paper. I'm not a fan of their solution.
