red plate

persuaded DH to stop at a different restaurant on the way home last night
when he's had a Very Bad Day, he'll veer right instead of left and want to eat chinese buffet
across the street is a Mexican place, and I wasn't in the mood for chinese, so I asked if we could try it. he was in full menuphobia mode, so I ordered the fajita mixta for him, and tacos caribenos for myself. mine came with grilled chicken in soft flour tortillas, pico de gallo the way I like it with tomatoes and onion but light on cilantro and peppers, fried plaintains and salsa verde. it was the best salsa verde I've had in years. actually made from tomatillos and onion, not an excuse for pureed peppers.
his plate wasn't as big as he'd like, but the freshness made up for it. (he'd recently had a plate of mixed fajitas with shrimp that had overstayed it's welcome), and it was close to what he'd expressed a desire for last week, something like hispanic homecooking, not tex-mess.
I think we can go back. I've got my eye on an appetizer featuring enchiladas with chicken, salsa verde, & pineapple..


So where IS this place of wonders?

BTW: have a look over at

Fun music next week on Wednesday evening.
I'll probably spell the name wrong, its La Hurredura (?) on the west side of Geyer Springs, just north of where the Panda Chinese buffet and Wendy's are located on the east side. about two blocks north of Baseline.
not that far from where you work at all.
I need to go to the new market in the old Harvest Foods bulding and do a post about shopping in places where I can't read the labels.

I saw the notice, and am trying to convince DH he can stay up late enough for that. I've got a couple of their cds I've been playing in the car. Does Studio Joe's have a website?
Not yet. I did some preliminary work for them, translating their menu/brochure into a website and adding photos, but I haven't found the pages hung up yet at the URL given on the menu.

Tell DH that it's safe to let you come to this by yourself, if he's not up for the mob.
it's all about his level of exhaustion, most days, and chores, and the fact we are riding together.
I keep wanting to go to some event there, but am never sure till too late what the schedule is.
