A multitool was brought. Two beers and one water were stowed. A pump, patch kit nor tube was not. Uber wasn’t the best at responding if they could fit a bicycle with. A beer was had. The water was salvaged (in survival mode-periodically sipped) and a trek home while pushing a Trek was experienced.

And Good Food was prepared. Southwestern Rice Ⓥ Queso was influenced by The Sonoran desert and its beautiful cacti warriors, the Saguaro cactus. A Chile Ⓥ Queso was made previously by heating Daiya ‘cheese’ Sauce with Pico de Gallo, Kidney Beans, Crumbles, Jalapeño and Corn. Seasoned, of course, with Sea Salt and Pepper. And CILANTRO:)

BBⓋ Cauliflower TACO

Occasionally, a half work day fixes everything. Not to say anything is wrong, but a little me-time is extremely therapeutic. I had a beer, took some pictures, helped a fallen man into his apt with his wife, went for a little bike ride in the 100 degree desert sunniness and am now writing about my Tacos. CHEERS.
