taco time



Tacos can be made out of anything you want. Some favorites include simple vegetarian like avocado and pico de gallo, or sauteed zuchini, and cheese or mushrooms, onions and radish or whatever combination you like. Other favorites are chicken and the ever popular fish but these are made from something like that pork roast you saw the other day except I made another bigger one for a garden party we had on Saturday. Bananas moms is here from out of town so we had a little outdoor fun. This is what we did the last time she showed up.



I cut the meat off the bone in large slabs and then slice it and cook it again in a hot cast iron skillet to make 'carnitas'. While carnitas are usually pulled and stringy I like to slice it since I prefer a more chunky bite. This chunky meat was then rolled up in toasted flour tortilla with some pico and crema and a little red chile sauce.



This pico de gallo is a mixed bag of tricks, it has a combination of chiles and avocado. I remove the 'vein' from the hottest ones to cut back on the heat leaving nothing but flavor. (you can see the hand of Banana cutting things up)The vein is the white pulpy string you see inside the chiles when you cut them open lengthwise, they hold the seeds and most of the heat, remove it and the chile flavor is more manageable.

Dear,

I'm a korean living in seoul.(name: Oh Minseok)
Korean special investigative team investigated samsung
corporation.
But they did not work right.
Suspicious to have been bought off.
Samsung corporation had many crimes.
And the team investigated samsung corporation.
It contained korean companies samsung,hyundai,sk CEOs' illegal issuing
stocks or bonds. ( previous CEOs or present CEOs )
The quantity are plenty.
(Three company CEOs did(and are doing) many crimes to me.
Many koreans are knowing it.
But many koreans are bought off by illegal issuing stocks or bonds.
Korean prosecutors and judges and bureaucracy are also guilty.)
The team knew it.
Korean special investigative team must investigated this.
But they concealed it.
I ask for asking for this criminal investigation to prosecutors and presidents in any
country and THE WHITE HOUSE(http://www.whitehouse.gov ) and INTERNATIONAL COURT OF JUSTICE(http://www.icj-cij.org/ ) and INTERNATIONAL CRIME COURT(http://www.un.org/law/icc/) and UN(http://www.un.org).
And help the shareholders and me.
P.S)
Three companies are hacking me and trying to kill me.
And are suspicious to use my name and email illegally.
If you receive another message that I dictated above are not true,
it is not from me, but from three companies.
The things I dictated above are true.

I see you got some spam. If it happens much more, you might have to use that comment filter where we have to type in those letters. You can delete it.
