    If you had those food outlets, would you bother cooking yourself? :D

    The Coroner's report would read: "Massive instantaneous cardiac arrest, most likely brought on by excessive consumption of delicious Mexican food".

    And on that note... time to grill the Chorizo's and turkish rolls that I bought this morning. :D
    Yes, I know Chorizo is Spanish not Mexican, but close enough (gastronomically, even if not geographically...:)).

    EDIT: Dinner!
    Chorizo sausage grilled on a turkish roll, the salad is an "instant pickle" made from thinly sliced onion, vine-ripened tomato, Lebanese cucumber and Kalamata olives, soaked for about an hour in a mixture of white vinegar, Balsamic vinegar, teaspoon of minced garlic, teaspoon of brown sugar, juice of half a lime, and a generous whack of fresh ground S'N'P. The sauce is a 33/33/33 mix of "Coles" brand Tomato/BBQ and Handsome Devils Co. chipotle pepper sauce.

    Will definitely be doing the "salad pickle" thing again, it worked really well.
    The brief pickling takes the edge off the onions and infuses some flavour, but the veges stay reasonably crisp.

    Looks fantastic. I was considering giving ramen a go for the first time.

    Top left was andouille sausages, store bought then sliced and fried. Right was Gumbas Ajillo (garlic prawns) - heat lots of garlic, some salt, cook but don't brown, add prawns and dried chilli, just before it's done toss in parsley. The last one was Mackerel Escabeche - basically this recipe, but I added capsicum, used apple cider vinegar instead of red wine vinegar, supped mexican oregano for thyme and no tapenade. The Escabeche is really tasty and lasts for a while because it basically gets preserved with all the vinegar and oil.
