It's hard to find a really good Chinese, Mexican or Italian restaurant but when you can get someone from one of these ethnic backgrounds to cook a home meal, it can't be beat.

I too love Italian the most...well nearly more than I love great rare steak (carnivore that I am). So far, from most of the usual faux-italiano eateries in the Denver region: Mac grill, Carinoes, et al, MY spaghetti is the best. My primavera style pasta I make twice a month and it takes several hours...but I've yet to taste resteraunt 'getti better than mine! No brag, just fact!

I blend several types of tomatoes, garlic, white and yellow onions, smoked sausage and extra lean beef or buffalo, stewed tomatoes, bay leaves, generous portions of olive oil, olives, Monteray Jack, Romano and Parm. cheeses, among other (secret) spices and ingredients. I LOVE to cook! I typically make enough for around 5 or 6 people but we (the four of us) consume it all within an hour or so La Dolce Vitae!

Me either...*gag*

The best semi-fast food Mexican I've ever had was Rosa's Cafe...their tacos and salsa at the drive-through were staples, LOL!! It's not as good as sit-down, but it is unequaled when you want something fast! I loved their chile de árbol salsa!

Unfortunately, all of the locations are in Texas....except for one in CA and one in Lawton, OK.

Oh well....back to slaving over a hot stove.

Default The Mutz Lives On!

I'm sorry to learn Mutz has been bounced from this sometimes dubious forum. He is a man with a big heart and much generosity. His job postings and current event listings for the TorC region were an asset to this board. I consider him a friend and do not view attacks or disparaging remarks made about him to be appropriate or fair...particularly if he is no longer around to defend his turf, so to speak. Long Live Highdesertmutz; he is an honorable and excellent gentleman whose friendship I value. I've got your back 'mutz
