Fajitas

I have a preternatural love for Mexican food – and even love the stuff that isn’t really Mexican. That Tex-Mex stuff tickles my fancy. It is no surprise then, that I’m pretty damned keen on Fajitas. Named as a diminutive for Faja, the “strip” of skirt steak that’s most commonly associated with the do-it-yourself tacos, Fajitas are the perfect meal for those who like building their own.

Though steak is the usual meat, other proteins that go swimmingly with the corn or flour tortillas include well, your common proteins; fish, chicken, lamb, prawns etc. The whole thing is accompanied, usually, by sour cream, guacamole, salsa, pico de gallo, chopped tomatoes and of course, a bit of queso and some fresh chillis.

    Whenever Geoff does ION, he always opens up with food talk. Why is that? Simple hunger? Or is it something with deeper roots?

      Tuesday is food ION days

      So either Geoff posts about his latest food experience or food memory.

      OR

      Darryn posts about what KFC product he has been gorging on while wearing his mankini in the bath

          And you think you have it bad with a verbal description, in the good ‘ol days Lagz always posted a picture of a beautiful person showing lots of skin posing on some piece of furniture for the ION header.

          The picture was always chosen by the D-man himself and then as cruel joke he would sometimes post a picture of himself.

          Days of insomnia I tell you ….

            These are absolutely amazing, other craft beers taste ichy.

            Speaking off, new In Flames came out last Friday and new Metallica (doesn’t sound too bad so far) comes out this Friday.

            Metallica sort of lost its appeal when James became a pussy.

            Love Mustaine. He is such an asshole. Read his book.

            Love all the old metal/ rock bands and some of newer ones. At the moment Im heavy into the frightening chaos that is Slipknot.

            Currently I’m more up north. Evergrey, Amaranthe, Hammerfall, Sonic Syndicate, those kind of bands. Still Crank up Sabbath every now and then though.

          • Andre Fourie

            November 15, 2016 at 18:17

            The Dragon Lies Bleeding by Hammerfall is an awesome song. Sabbath is always classic.

          • Andre Fourie

            November 15, 2016 at 17:34

            Awesome read. Metallica also has one called “Enter Night”. Everything about them up to Black album. Where they fired Mustaine and everything. LOL

          • Andre Fourie

            November 15, 2016 at 16:23

            Yep. I heard the new songs. Not bad.

            Death Magnetic was a return to form and so far Hard Wired To Self Destruct is sounding great.

            Told him I was going to bottle his piss. He said: “No way.” I said: “Here. Hold my beer and watch this.”

        I dislike lamb solely due to the fact that you have to kill it on the fire.
