        Personally, I prefer noodles to rice and can fully endorse this suggestion, while nevertheless holding that RICE is the better choice. This position is neither double think nor cognitive dissonance, but rather a complex human response characterized by ambivalence in the face of limited time.

                  I think your vote should count double given your valiant efforts at CR.

                    Thank you.

                    I've always disliked CRs and was trying to open my arms to new culinary experiences. And I did. Not good ones, but I did have experiences.

                      Is you nom strictly for the carne asada burrito, or can we include carne asada (plain, no burrito, not taco, just the meat) as well?

                      We have so many markets selling carne asada meat (marinated or not) I just want it to be clear whether people can go there or not.

                        C.A.B or Carne Asada Burrito, or, to be sure I'll qualify, CARNE ASADA BURRITO is my suggestion because it sports carne asada in a specific application.

                        By suggesting the application-specific dish, I've narrowed the myriad of possibilities, angles, option, alternatives, etc, thus simplifying (no- distilling!) the process and concentrating the efforts of Chowhounds to discover nirvana.

                        It is, of course, a suggestion. I completely understand why others would choose a more wholesome, nutritious, healthy, sophisticated and less controversial option.

                                Since they are in season (I think), how about all forms of BRASSICAS?

                                You can get your cauiliflower, brocoli, brussels sprouts, etc fix that way

                                  Chinese mustard greens stir fried with some firm tofu, and finished off with a bit of chicken stock and a dash of white pepper. Yum.

                                      Can we pick something that's just come into season? I like soup and I like chile rellenos, but they have little to any connection to January and February. What just came into season?

                                        not to belabor the point, but Carne Asada Burritos are always in season.

                                                        and now that I realize my mistake (I thought this was home cooking), I'd love to read about your CAB's!

                                                          If you're in San Diego, you're on the right board, if you're located somewhere else, you need the Home Cooking board :-)

                                                            carne asada has been done to death on the board, and nothing new has arrived.

                                                            I vote BEEF CHEEKS

                                                              Okay, folks, this is a last call for nominations. If you've got an idea for a dish or ingredient of the month and haven't nominated it yet, please do it now. Remember, CAPITAL LETTERS please :-).

                                                              Today is National Margarita Day and I intend to celebrate. So Maggies and tacos for dinner and then I'll recap the nominations and post a voting thread.
