    I seriously don't care what anyone eats, and we all eat differently. For instance ... Mexican food where you are is not Mexican food here. I hated the Mexican food in CA, AZ and NM. I'm like how can you live next door and be so different? Mexican food in IL is Taco Bell.

    However ... for us Texans? If you got to doctor your steak you either got a bad piece of meat or don't know how to cook. We got lots of cows here.

    I like the Mexican food in California. And Arizona. And New Mexico. And Texas.


    But you are correct, they are all different from one another...



    Mexican food in South Carolina sucks. Bigly.

    I like AZ Mexican food. Gunny counts the sticks in IL as all of IL, he's so wrong. Lots of good Mexican places in Chicago area, where Mexicans actually live.

    It's n art form you have to master.

    But let's turn it around. I can put steak on a knife and cook it over the fire pit. Y'all womens want to trash 20 dishes cooking a piece of meat. Screw all that noise. I know who gets to wash the dishes. Y'all will make a bigger mess making a bowl of soup than it's worth.

    I've always cleaned up as I go. Dinner dishes the kids did, but would never let you or them by my pots and pans!

    I actually gave my daughter a set of good pots and pans when she got her first apartment. A few years ago she said to me, "Mom, do you ever cook? Your stuff always looks new and mine?" Really? She was always there for dinner, often with a few friends. Maybe I should have made her watch the cleaning parts and not just the cooking? LOL!

    She is a great cook, but she's rough on the cookware.

    Kids nowadays. My cookware was spotless. What noticed over the years (no offense Kath ) most girls don't realize there an OUTSIDE AND HANDLE on those pots n pans.

    I do the military thing. Just habit. Getting sick in the field sucks. Not to mention I'm a total germaphobe to begin with. Try THAT one always being around 2000 sloppy jarheads. I've always handwashed everything.

    I totally get the clean as you go thing. I don't know any other way and I'm always calculating. What's next? Oh, I'm supposed to enjoy this meal knowing I have a million dishes to wash afterward. Same when I was an electrician. Those clowns would make a big mess with wire and conduit and not clean up. I guess they figured Mr Clean was going to miracle up their mess overnight.


    And yes, I admit it ... I'm a total neat freak.

    A steak...a REAL STEAK, does not get chopped up, or served on any bun unless you order a PHILLY CHEESE STEAK, where the meat is cut into smaller pieces, and never anything but Well Done.

    My grandmother made it often, with boiled potatoes, her gravy, and a couple of veggies.

    I've to Chicago, missy. Stepdaughter lives there. And Peoria is not quite the sticks. I was just expressing a preference for a specific style of Mexican. It's different here. A LOT spicier for one thing.

    I always thought the sticks started at Aurora and Joliet. When my dad was a kid, they probably started at oak park.

    I actually did live out in the sticks. I liked it. Just cost too much and there was no work.

    I can imagine. I remember hearing no one below I-80 votes like those above it.

    Well my cousins lived in the city when I was really young, moved to Oak Park when I was in kindergarten. They said we live 'in the country.' Elmhurst at the time had over 40k people, just not multi-family housing. LOL!

    Past DeKalb is 'country.' I get to define it. Peoria is a town out in the sticks. Used to have heavy manufacturing, but that was gone years ago with exception of Caterpillar, which just announced the plant closing.
