Mexico is still by large a beautiful country and safe to visit. I lived in Texas almost all my life and still have yet to visit south of the border. I guess with all the wonderful Latino culture here in Texas I don't need to.:eek:
My family is split between Mexico and the US, i hafe family in Wisconsin, Texas, Nevada and California, all are US citizens

Here is a classic Argentine comfort food (one of my favorites): Milanesas con pure de papas. Which is a breaded meat (beef or chicken) with mashed potatos
Please, Log in or Register to view URLs content!


Of all the typical foods in Argentina, the milanesa is one of the most popular. The milanesa is like the hamburger of Argentina, and it is very popular with children as well as adults. Milanesas are battered thin cut strips of beef from the round of the cow (near the top of the back legs). They can also be made from chicken or fish. The egg wash includes herbs, and after the meat is passed through the egg wash it is covered in bread crumbs. Milanesas can be fried or baked in the oven based on preference. They are almost always accompanied by french fries and fried eggs. In the summer people like to eat milanesas with fresh salad and tomatoes.

I guess Milanesas are basicly a latin american dish

So this is like an Argentinean way of a chicken fried steak. A chicken fried steak is beef cooked and battered like fried chicken.
Uhhh, chicken fried steak, my go-to dish at my high school cafeteria. And it is STILL my go-to dish on Mondays at our Med school cafeteria. So Mondays:chicken fried steak; Tuesdays: Philly cheese steak; Wednesdays: pasta; Thursdays and fridays: veggie-heavy stuff to make myself feel better :eek:

Talking about cooking meat. I love grilling/BBQ. I have my own secret spice rub (contains about 10 different spices) and BBQ sauce. Everyone loves my baby-back ribs and pork shoulders. Your taste buds will simply explode upon tasting my ribs because of the amazing flavor! :p The pork shoulder? cooked low and slow at 190 deg for 12 hours. Simply fall-off-the-bone delicious!! It would be even better if I can actually get a hold of a piece of pork shoulder with skin-on. crispy skin!

Is San Antonio big enough to be included? I thought Dallas was almost as big as Houston now. My impression of San Antonio is always a kind of a mid-sized town, not known to have any meaningful industry or anything...

San Antonio (as well as Austin) has been growing and developing immensly. As a matter of fact, as far as area and population wise it is now bigger than Dallas (not including Ft. Worth or the Metroplex area). Of course H-town is still #1 in Texas.:eek:

sure is.. San Antonio's population within the city limits is 1,300,000 + by a 2012 guesstimate..I posted those cities by population rank not metro area.

Now that list shows the largest cities. As most of we nerds know there are very large metro areas in the US. Here's how they rank.

San Antonio's metro area has over 2 million folks.

Yeah, the second list would be the one I had in mind. San Antonio is a beautiful town. The river walk is amazing, especially at night. With that said, I almost walked into the river once when I was walking along the walk after a fantastic meal and a few drinks :eek:. The river zigzags through the walk and I was walking straight ahead and almost stepped into the water.
