Tried another…and not just another mexican food hole in the wall…this one was in fact…a hole in the wall. Lourdes Mexican Food http://lourdesmexicanfood.com/page04.html located inside of the back wall of the El Norte Car Wash at 615 El Norte Pkwy in Escondido, CA. I was told Lourdes has been inside for 5 years. I have long taken my car to get washed and waxed there but, just today, decided to … Continue reading Napkins…it’s all about the napkins!
I’m finally getting some writing time due to being caught up at home and work has slowed a bit. Today we caught lunch and the movie “Avengers”. Pretty good movie, lunch was a let down. We decided to try a fresh name on an old Roadhouse that used to be in San Marcos. Turns out to be almost identical inside as the previous steakhouse.

So I now have CritDicks on Facebook and linked to Twitter. This social media thing gets quite complex. I now somehow need to relate this BS to food. How about… “I’m hungry”.

A trip to the Arco Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista yesterday and a guided tour of the facility, kitchen and dining area revealed one very fascinating discovery…Olympic athletes are HOT! I don’t think there was one disgusting fat-body in the whole place…except for maybe some of the Culinary students on the tour itself. We were graced by such awesome athletes preparing for the upcoming 2012 Summer Olympics being … Continue reading Recognizing Awesomeness – But don’t drink the water!
Got the Sirius playing on-line. Inspired by some kickin’ music on “Lithium” and a great recipe for a family favorite. Yup, the ol’ Italian in me had a Sirius craving for the clams. How simple is this? Start with the cleaning, mashing and chopping finely, some fresh garlic. For this I use a whole head…duh, for just about everything, I use a whole head. I just … Continue reading Linguini & Clams – Siriusly?
