Kimbo Extra Cream Espresso Beans

Those that know me know I love my coffee.  I picked up a new bean today that I have instantly fallen in love with, the Kimbo Extra Cream.  I picked it up at Jimmy’s Market here in Dallas.

Dead Wrong, But A Father’s Love

Rape_Assist

June 11, 2016: Police in Florida are making some STARTLING accusations against a man, that was recently convicted of armed sexual battery.  According to authorities, a Florida man raped a woman and then called 911 to turn himself.  Police claim that the RAPIST told them that he wanted to go to prison, so that he can CONFRONT the person who killed his son.

This crazy story was first reported in The Palm Beach Post.  Forty-nine year old Joel Jones was convicted last week of armed sexual battery and sentenced to 25 years in prison.  The newspaper reports that the victim told authorities Jones attacked her in August 2014 as he was showing her an office building she would be cleaning.  She said he let her go after the attack, and she heard him calling 911 as she left.

The police arrest report stated that Jones old officers that he wanted to go to prison to “get even” with the person who killed his 14-year-old son.

New Wheels and Rear Tires

I decided to replace the stock BMW M3 19″ wheels with a set of HRE Form Flow FF01 wheels in their Tarmac color. The facility wheels are 19×8.5″ on the front and 19×9.5″ on the rear.  The new wheels are 19×9 on the front and 19×10.5 on the rear.  I will be using the 245/35/19 tires from the stock wheels on the new wheels.  But I had to step up from a 265/35/19 to a 295/30/19 on the rear.  Now I got to wait for the car to get it’s rear end repaired. 😔

Damn, Now The Wait

I started making my mods to my e92 M3.  I changed the turn signal housing to carbon fiber.  I also changed the turn signal from clear with yellow LEDs to a smoked with led fixture. The stock grill has been replaced with an all black grill.

Well the modding will have to be put on hold since a fella decided to run into the rear of my car.  And this happened the day before my new wheels arrived.  Damn.

 

A Stroke of Genius: the Dallas Burger That Doubles as a Taco

DALLAS OBSERVER

Just under two years ago, Dallas’ most underrated eatery swung open its window. The red banner above the ordering window still read “Comederia” in chunky white letters from the former taco stand. A chalkboard, hanging casually in front, announced the menu: a Cubano, coffees, sides, a roasted turkey sandwich and a Cuban burger made with a beef and chorizo patty, homemade spiced ketchup, pepper Jack and crispy potato strings on a soft roll. The burger was exciting and delicious, the patty seared with crunchy edges, texture added from buttery onions and crispy potato matchsticks.

Now, at its young age of almost two, ¡C. Señor! has one of Dallas’ most interesting and delicious burgers under 10 bucks. Also, and this is a big “also,” you can order it as a taco. It’s brilliant: The chorizo-beef patty, hard seared and crunchy-edged, gets chopped and dropped into a double corn tortilla with diced white onion, cilantro and toothpick-thin fried potatoes. One bite in, you’ll forever regret the time you made fun of a burger taco. Why don’t more restaurants offer a taco version of your order?

I’m there on a storm-washed afternoon, planted at one of their unembellished concrete tables. Birds are popping around, and I’m slamming a Topo Chico. My order — the burger and the burger taco — comes in a paper bag stamped with the ¡C. Señor! logo.

The burger has evolved somewhat. Griddled “medianoche” bread (instead of a roll), a Cuban staple that’s similar to Cuban sandwich bread, surrounds the sandwich. Three beautiful, melted slices of pepper jack top my heavy-seared, chorizo-spiked beef patty. The potato sticks are thinner, tooth-pick sized, than the soft opening’s version. Adobo ketchup sneaks up on you, an elbow’s nudge worth of tangy, cuminy sweetness, caramelized right onto the patty. It’s rich with chorizo’s magical oil and big on beef flavor.

The Cuban burger is non-stop happiness. There’s no nonsense. The food comes quickly in a paper bag, and you devour it outside, wind in your face, as you sit at a concrete table. With the check and the Topo Chico, my burger and its burger taco cousin cost me about 13 bucks.

You’ll feel like you’ve been transported to Miami, even if you’ve never been. It just feels like the coast. Go, enjoy a real food stand and taco-it. Taco everything.
