We used an expression for the food in military chow halls:

"Just like mama used to make -- except she didn't [moderator edit] in hers."

Sounds like the chef in that Washington cafe may have been a cook in the military!

My Big Mama made sun tea , people would look really strange at this glass gallon with tea bags in it
Sweet or unsweetened
Dr says no sweet , I'll have a glass once a week

I went to the mess hall shortly after arriving in Iraq and saw Southwest Style Brisket listed on the menu. I thought that was a very good omen. After one bite, the only thing I could figure is that someone took some corned beef, slapped some BBQ sauce on it and thought that made it Southwest style. Had to have been one of the worst things I ever ate.

No portion of a true "beef breed" gets ground up and sold that way anymore, and I'd bet that's true even in Texas. The cuts that used to be used that way have been renamed and sold under fancy new names that don't exist on a butcher's chart.
I was being generic. I should have said shredded pot roast was used. I don't like tacos with shredded pot roast and it tastes like New England pot roast.

If Fajita meat (skirt steak) is used in tacos it is not shredded it is cut into thin strips and has a very distinct, and good for me, flavor of it's own. When skirt steak is not available I prefer hamburger meat and not the pink slime, but it seems more and more are going to the pink slime so I'll stick with asking for skirt steak and when not available I'll ask for chicken or pork just as a variant, or better yet, cheese enchiladas. Even then they use Velveeta instead of the good Mexican Cheese.

We have Six Mexican restaurants here, all within a mile of each other, seven if you count the one only open for lunch. Then there is another two at the city limits going west. They each have their distinctive dishes but all with a true TexMex flavor, and not one serves shredded pot roast. They just would not stay in business.

And now for something completely different. Freeze warning in effect for Plano between midnight and 9 am tomorrow morning. Texas has four seasons in a day - depending on how you drive - you might experience them all in a day.
