Treat in Hello
- Feb. 27, 2023, 6:58 p.m.
My income tax came in Friday so I treated mom out to Ichiban last night. We both ordered filet mignon and scallops. We split a rainbow roll, the meal came with miso soup and a salad, fresh veggies, noodles and rice. I was SO full when we left. Worth it!
Don’t know if it’s the crappy weather or what but I’ve been lethargic and super tired all day. Zero energy. I’ve napped on and off throughout. Maybe a shower will rejuvenate me.
Saturday I made some bad ass beef and shrimp tacos.
1 pound ground beef
1/2 pound of shrimp
Fresh cilantro for flavor
Pick cilantro leaves off stems, set aside.
Boil shrimp till it turns just a little pink. Deshell and cut in half.
Brown meat, drain, add shrimp, cilantro and juice of lime. Cook until shrimp is done, constantly stirring.
Add to a flour tortilla with avocado slices and enjoy! I doused mine in cayenne/habanero/garlic hot sauce. Twas good!

Nice of you to treat your mom like that.
Do you enjoy cooking?

Yes I do but would not want to work in a restaurant 'cause I know I'd end up hating it lol.

Lol I don't blame you. Random, but can you tell me what cilantro tastes like to you? I'm one of those people who taste soap when I eat it.

Kinda citrus-y. First time I ever had it was on some street tacos from the El Cazador taco truck. Authentic Mexican food.
