Well, aren't you sweet. I will let you know.

Right there with you, but then, I also live in a state that was once part of Mexico.

No, not this time around. To be honest, I don't think I've ever fed them during any of our trips to SW. They freak me out a little.

Enjoying your update so far Lady H!
I was wondering if anyone would get that connection! NARF!

We are going to San Diego next month. We haven't decided if we're doing SW. I'll be interested to see what more you have to say.
He may have. I don't know. But whatever it was that finally kicked in for him, he was definitely all over us the second time through. And yes, it was a very good excuse for me. I take them where I can get them. Otherwise, my excuse is just, Dumb Wife!

I always enjoy SW. But I absolutely adore sea animals. For the longest time I had my mind set on becoming a marine biologist/zoologist just because I love animals. Unfortunately my love for animals was thrown overboard by my lack of enthusiasm for the classes i had to take. I'm not a science person at all, and while I'm sure I could have done it if I put my mind to it, I was too scared to try and went to Communications/Theater instead.

Are you saying that you thought I was normal before this? You've met me...When have I ever given the impression that normality was part of my life?

I think T-Man beat me to it, but yes, there were potatoes on there. I love potatoes with Ketchup. In a restaurant, if i order a breakfast plate that comes with potatoes or hash browns, I tend to leave those for last so I can eat them with Ketchup. That way the ketchup doesn't get into my eggs or anything else.

Jill in CO
The Manta in CA is completely different from Manta in FL. The Manta in FL I have been on once. This past trip, T-Man and his sister had a bet going that if she rode The Incredible Hulk coaster at Islands of Adventure 15 times in one day, that he would then ride Manta 10 times (Because of the difference in extremes, it would be unwise to do it more than that I guess). His sister rode Hulk 15 times, and so when we went to SW, he was bound and determined to keep his side of the bargain. His sister is as crazy as he is when it comes to coasters, I stand off to the side and wave and take pictures most of the time.
but for some reason, this particular coaster makes her become Dumb Sister (saving me the trouble of coming along as Dumb Wife). She can't handle it. However, she went along for 4 of the rides, each time freaking out and channeling her inner sister in law (i.e., screaming and closing her eyes for the ride). Needless to say, by the end of the 4th ride, she threw in her towel. T-Man only made it 7 times. He would have made it the whole 10 but by the time we went to see the final Shamu show, the park was getting ready to close and he didn't get a chance to test his boundaries. He did however have a few nice bruises from the ride. His sister called it even after that I think.

I live in New Mexico, where the official state question is Red or Green, meaning do you want red or green chili with your food. We eat chili with just about everything here. We usually take some along on our trips because we can't go extended periods of time without it. We start to get the shakes and it's not pretty. So yes, when no chili is available, I will substitute hot sauce or salsa.

As I grew older, my tastes changed. i used to only eat hot dogs with ketchup, now, I am not that fond of it. I will eat them with mustard, and occasionally, because of T-Man, will eat them with Mayo when having a chili dog.

I love to eat my fries with Ranch. Of course I eat Ranch on almost anything too, Pizza is a favorite for that. Again...normality?

We live in a state that everyone thinks is part of Mexico. Anywhere we go, when asked where we live, we get, "Oh, you live in Mexico", or "Did you need a passport to get here?" Just because there is a New in front of it does not mean that it is part of the old...

Ranch on fries is wonderful! If i can't have ranch though, I will eat them with ketchup. I know a lot of people who like mayo with their fries. Never tried it. I have done Aoli, which of course is a garlic mayo, but I think the spices and the garlic change the dynamics.

What a coincidence, we live in a state that people think is still part of Mexico. One time in FL, I literally had someone ask me where New Mexico was. :confused it took all I had in me not to die laughing. 3 I'm guessing she was absent from school the day they taught her about the 50 states.

You're doing great! Don't let the Thumpers scare you off.

Next up, work on the snarky comments. My comments are not good examples. All I wanted to know was if they fed the rays.....

Me scare off my D'Sis? You know how long it took me to get her to join?

I doubt Lady H would scare off her D'SIL. If she were to do that, then she would have to play dumb wife. Lady H likes that her D'SIL is my coaster buddy. She can usually send me off with her and keep her feet planted firmly on the ground playing smart wife. By that I mean sip stealer.

She's already got to meet Nebo, so I doubt he can scare her off. She already knows what he's like. I think she already learned to ignore him because he don't think she really talks that much.
Her and Smidgy left us to watch the parade, so I know they're buds.

Now Ponzi on the other hand. This is my younger sister, I got my eye on you.

Seriously though, it usually the other posters on these threads she has to watch out for. Some of them look to pounce on you like a kitty on a unraveling ball of yarn.

The yummy, spicy flavors of Texas and the Southwest - I don't know how I lived without them.

Not sure how that happened as it is definately salsa in the rest of Texas.

Totally with you - ranch on both fries and especially pizza!

now when you say "chili" with everything, what do you mean? do you mean chili peppers? or hot sauce made with chili peppers. casue when I think of chili, I think of ground beef, kidney beans, tomato sauce or crushed tomatos, with various spices (cumin, red pepper etc. ) with onions and cheese on top.. some people have recently taken to putting fritos on top.
I guess in texas "true" chili has no beans. and it's made with chuck steak, not ground beef. (we have an awesome sub shop near us that makes chili that way)

a true Chicago hot dog: mustard(can be yellow, but brown in better), onions, relish, tomatos, sport peppers. on a poppy seed bun. buns are steamed. oh! celery salt! NO kethup!(although I admit, I like kethcup on mine, but nebo freaks.. but he hates tomatos)

preferrably bought from a free standing cart on the side of the road. there was on about a block from Foster Ave, Beach (Lake Michigan) one the way to the bus stop. as! good old high school summers at the beach!

I know I might be banned forever but I have a confession...I only put ketchup on hot dogs. My DH thinks its weird too. I even put ketchup on steak! I know, I know but I don't like anything even a tad spicy. My stomach is very sensitive and getting worse with age.

I work at a steakhouse. we serve only certified angus beef. I cringe when someone asks for steak sauce (and when nebo uses it lol) . Kethcup on a steak is sacrilege!!! just order a burger! lol

Yes I did notice, but when am I ever going to get to use the word NARF again? It's the little things that amuse me, i take it where I can get it.

But thank you for making me out to be the brain. I knew i liked you for a reason! Other than following our TR, and being awesome.

I lived in Portales, NM during my college years, and it's amazing the difference in culinary tastes from city to city here in NM. Since Portales was so close to Texas, their "chili" was salsa. The first time I went to a restaurant and ordered a breakfast plate with a side of chili, I of course expected a side of green chili sauce, because most places serve that on the side. Nope...I got a side of salsa. Needless to say, that would have been a very long 4 1/2 years if I didn't get to go home occasionally and bring some back with me.

I don't remember how long ago it was, I've been eating ranch with Pizza for ages, but I do remember that I was sitting in a Pizza hut with my mom the first time I tried it. One of the waitresses brought a side of ranch over to me, and told me I had to give it a try. I have been hooked ever since.

Chili...how do I explain that...Here in New Mexico we are known for our chili. Hatch (A town in the southern part of the state) is where most of the chili is grown here. Depending on when it's picked, will determine the intensity of the chili. The green chili, which is one of the more popular, is probably closest to the anaheim chili. So yes, technically it is a pepper. However, here in NM, we don't eat it say like a Jalapeno, Once picked, the chili's are usually roasted over an open flame, charred on the skin, and then once packaged, you can do one of two things. Either freeze the chili as is, into individual packages, for later consumption, or peel it, and seed it and then freeze it. We tend to buy in bulk, since they are only cultivated once per year. When using the chili, we defrost, and then chop it, add a little garlic powder and salt to taste, and then use it over almost everything. In some cases, such as a good green chili cheeseburger, you can use the strips of chili instead of chopping it.

Now, on the other side of the coin, if the chili's are left longer on the vine, they will eventually turn red, making them hotter and in turn, this is what is called, Chili Colorado. We tend to grind this chili down into a powder and make red chili to put on almost everything, from enchiladas, to eggs, to even hot chocolate if you want it spicy.

Usually, the way we do it, is make a pot of red chili for beans and enchiladas. we make it with pork, which is the more traditional way, but others like it plain or with ground beef. Either way is fine. But you start by making a rue, flour and butter or oil, then add the chili powder, and meat of your choice that has already been browned. From there you add water to thin out the mixture to your liking. Add garlic and salt and voila, you have red chili.

There is a HUGE difference in NM chili as opposed to Texas chili, where in Texas, chili is pretty much a meal in itself. It has veggies, meats, beans, etc all mixed in with other sauces and spices. Here in NM, we take the chili as simple as we can and use it on everything.

I hope that wasn't too confusing...

I hope you enjoy the museums. That sounds like it would be fun. Of course I love going to places like that. Sorry you won't be able to hit SW, but if you so decide later on, the voucher doesn't expire until August I think.

That's quite alright. Have fun at the museums. Lady H and I have yet to go to Balboa. One of these years we'll make it down there.
