    Just had some whole foods pizza last night--but looking forward to fajitas tonight. I have 1.5 lbs of skirt steak marinating in olive oil, soy sauce, and lime juice, with scallions, brown sugar, garlic, and cumin. (recipe courtesy alton brown)

    Sounds fantastic.

    From your posts I assume you're a skilled cook, but I assume this was not homemade.

    I used that recipe a couple of weeks ago for fajitas. It turned out GREAT

    A bit better than yesterday, all day vomiting for
    I made a tiny little pork roast, mashed potatoes and real honest-to-goodness, artery-clogging gravy! (The only downer about it was eating it by myself.)

    went out for ethiopian, a half dozen different veg and meat dishes on a platter, all sort of mushy in consistancy, a little spicy, basically the type of thing that I would call curries usually. not bad, very different spices from west african, indian, or pretty much any other food that I am used to.

    the funniest part was one of my 16 month old girls really took to the food, she was digging in with her hand and shoveling it into her mouth (the food is meant to be eaten by hand, so it wasn't that out of place). the spice didn't bother her at all. I found it very amusing.

    My impression when I had Ethiopian food was that it was under-spiced Indian. I had a platter like yours, but there were a couple cold dishes--which weren't congruent with the rest of the meal. The bread thing was a bit different--but good.

    Went out for some American BBQ in Soho. While it wouldnt stack up to proper BBQ in the US, I've lived outside the US for so long that I take what I can get.

    Had a half rack of ribs, some pulled pork, fries, slaw and washed it all down with a couple of beers.

    Then walked down the street to an old pub for a Guinness

    that was my overall impression, too. an intersting mix of textures and temperatures, and not very spicy but with some interesting spice mixtures.
