I keep getting little bits, or bytes of writers block creeping up here and there. Even now, I stare up to the sky looking for inspiration. Are you a writer? Do you get these brain farts once in a while? I don't know what it is. Is it the hot weather? I think about that being the reason and wonder how I use to feel when I lived in my hometown Monclova where is above 90 degrees 80% out of the year. Then I think to myself that I was used to it. I used to have my sports practices in the scorching heat as far as I can remember. Even when I was six playing football, not soccer, suited up with the typical football uniform, I don't remember thinking "oh man is way to hot out here". I don't remember kids passing out or not being able to breath. We did't have AC in the classrooms. We used to hangout for 30 minutes around noon out in the concrete basketball courts during recess. Even then, I don't remember us thinking it was too hot.
Then I left Monclova and things changed. Now that I lived in San Diego for 10 years, I can say that I feel spoiled with the mostly year round awesome weather, so when the heat comes, it takes me I guess a week or two to get used to it. Slow I feel, my eyes dormant to the feeling of heat.
Speaking of Monclova. After some deliberate contemplation about the name of our new picsa, I decided to call it Monclova Picsa. Have you seen my posts about it?
This Picsa is the daughter of the Hawaiian Pizza and Las Gringas that I used to eat in Monclova Coahuila, my hometown. Marinara, Cheese, Andouille Sausage, House chorizo, red onions and pineapple jam.
What is a gringa you ask?
"Gringas are a variety of tacos which consist of a flour tortilla filled with cheese, al pastor, and pineapple. This is then grilled in the same manner as a quesadilla. Some attribute the name to the use of white flour tortillas." Referenced from wikipedia.
So, if you're not drooling with this picsa, I invite you to check the rest of the menu at Cueva Bar Cafe. I know there's a heavy debate about not putting pineapple on pizzas, and that's good! All that debate should help this picsa start to come up in web search results.

Letting the inspiration flow and keeping balance in mind, I marry some Mexico’s classic ingredients and flavours with elements from around the U.S and the world using local-organic produce and vendors as much as possible to create both delicious and healthy dishes that have little to zero impact on our environment.
