Say (almost) anything #141. It's Taco Day! ๐ŸŒฎ

Photo #1 from New York City, USA by Escape ๐ŸŽƒ made on 2018-10-05 01:42 for Sola

Today is a day for tacos! There is some evidence that tacos with small fish were eaten in the Valley of Mexico before Spaniards arrived to the continent. In the 18th century Mexican silver miners used "plugs" or "wads"โ€”paper wrappers with gunpowder fillingsโ€”to extract ore, and these were also called tacos. Tacos likely got their modern name because they resembled the explosives. Tacos usually consist of a protein such as beef, chicken, pork, or fish, wrapped in a hard or soft shell made of corn or flour. Toppings may include tomatoes, onion, lettuce, cheese, refried beans, cilantro, salsa, sour cream, or guacamole.

Traditional Mexican tacos include the al pastor, carne asada, tacos de camarones (shrimp tacos), tacos de pescado (fish tacos), and others. They are often served at taco stands and many times are accompanied with sliced red radishes, lime, salt, and chilis.

Whereas most traditional tacos have corn tortillas with a soft pliable shell, in the United States the hard-shelled U-shaped taco has been the most popular, and was first described in a cookbook in 1949. Wheat flour soft-shell tacos are also popular in the United States. In 1962 Taco Bell opened in California and helped fuel the rise in popularity of tacos in the United States, and there are now about 5,800 locations. Other popular types of tacos are breakfast tacosโ€”which are soft corn or flour tortilla tacos with meat, eggs, and cheeseโ€”and Indian tacos, also known as Navajo tacos, which use frybread instead of tortillas and are commonly eaten by indigenous people in the United States and Canada.

I have calluses on my finger from blocking people, and yet some of them vote for my cards. Don't they understand what blocking means?

Escape ๐ŸŽƒAuthor
I have said before that if you block someone they should not be able to endorse your cards, I still think that should go into effect.

Tacos are good but chimichangas are great.

Burritos are the best

Escape ๐ŸŒน, burritos are good but after deep frying they become their best self and emerge as the chimichanga!!!
Escape ๐ŸŽƒAuthor
That's very very very very far-fetched
CV41
Most things are made more delicious by deep frying, this includes burritos. I would fetch a chimichanga from very, very, very, far away. On this point we agree.

How odd. The kids and I just had a taco dinner two days ago totally not knowing it was taco day. The hubby was getting in late from Stockholm, and he is not a taco fan, so it's a little thing between the kids and me when he is not around.

I was at an organization camping trip this weekend and helped cook brisket tacos for 500 people. I was just passing spoons of whipped butter spread to the tortilla friers (we ran out of oil) but I still felt like a part of something bigger! Not boasting, but I had seconds.

Wow sounds like a great party.

Just bought some beautiful avocados ๐Ÿฅ‘ Not sure what we will make. I could just eat them with a spoon.
Escape ๐ŸŽƒAuthor
Eating them plain would be just too healthy
Steph
Escape ๐ŸŒน, you could put some salsa on top.
Black Widow (Missy)
Avocados are so expensive these days. I only buy them on special since Iโ€™m not keen to pay $3 for one.
Steph
Black Widow (Missy), they were 99ยข each at my shop yesterday. I got three โ€”havenโ€™t seen them that inexpensive in ages.
Viqueen
That's crazy, both of you. Here they currently cost โ‚ฌ2.79/kg.
Righteous Pie Loving Joshua
Welp time to move to Estonia. Best deal ever.
Black Widow (Missy)
Viqueen, thatโ€™s almost $5 a kilo in NZ$. Think you need to send me some avocados ๐Ÿ˜„
Viqueen
My question is who is pocketing the difference? The avocados sold here come from Chile or South Africa just the same, they don't grow locally. And if they can be sold relatively cheaply here, someone else must be raking in the profit in places where they are expensive.
bdijack
Viqueen, well here in Washington heights NYC u can get them for a dollar at their cheapest on the street

Viqueen, good question. Maybe your country has something they want and we donโ€™t?
