R4 Phase 2 Day 58

Weight - 132.8

Woot.. stayed the same with the increase in calories and the addition of 120 calories of lemon truffles with coconut butter.

More of the same today.  Well maybe not the lemon truffles.

I ran down to the local Hispanic mini-super this morning and snagged the last 4 cheese and jalapeno tamales (fresh made every Saturday) for my son's GF - the prego one. . I also got some sweets that I have no clue the actual names are, but one is a dense bread pudding made with conchas (sweet bread) that I had a small sliver of.. it's to die for. I love bread pudding.

Spent about 30 minutes this afternoon batch cooking some proteins for the week.  It's so fast to do things on the grill and the food just tastes so much better.

Fastest batch cooking in the west on the grill!

  1. Beth.. You'll have to share where that Mexican Shop is that makes the cheese/jalapeno Tamales! YUMMY!!! Auburn?

  2. It's a little Latina grocery with a meat counter, bakery, and little restaurant in it. They make the tamales for every Saturday morning around 10:30ish and they go fast. They do beef, pork, and the cheese, jalapeno. It's called LA Internacional Mini Super and they are in Federal Way at 35425 21st Ave Suite C SW.

    Better than that is the salvadoran pupuseria at Mi Chalateca on Pacific Hwy in FW and across the street from them is Senor Taco which has the best fish tacos ever.

  3. Thanks!! I'm gonna have to check them out! I'm always looking for great local finds. I know exactly where Senior Taco is (LOVE IT), but have never seen the Mi Chalateca! Thanks for the tips.. I've lived in FW for 20 years and still don't know all the good spots.

  4. Now I want to be in P4.. LoL. The little mini-super has some fantastic baked goods. Very dangerous.

  5. I just mapquest it from my house and I'm sure I drive by this atleast 3x weekly to take my daughter to soccer. It's only 2 miles from me! Oh! And just recently I noticed there is a Soul Food spot right at the end of 21st too! My husband says it's been there for a while now, but I JUST started noticing the signs recently. Right across from the Fresh Produce store. All these new places are on hold for P4.. in MODERATION :)

  6. Ah yes.. Serious Soul Cafe. Another place I've not eaten.

  7. Good stuff. Thank you so so much for sharing your knowledge with the world through the Internet. Wonderful blog and post you got here
