Resolutions For 2015?

Mexican Food Overload

I was in Mexico City last week. While I’ve no idea how many calories were involved over the course of the 5 or 6 days I was in the city, the quality of the food was exceptional. Here are a few shots to illustrate:   I haven’t been near a weighing scales yet, but I […]
