Russell Boulevard Bike Trail


Time Change

Thursday, September 15th, 2011

By the way … I have put in a request to extend daylight hours so we can all ride later in the day. Dark at 7:30pm is just too dark too early.

Don’t you wish you were here?

Heirloom cherry tomatoes with fresh mozzarella, basil, extra virgin olive oil, and a grind or two of pink Himalayan salt.

... grilled zucchini ...


... and crookneck squash

The whole ensemble ... pork loin cutlets, grilled red onion, zucchini & crookneck squash.

Pineapple … it’s what’s for dinner tonight!

Did you know that sweet, juicy fresh pineapple is a source of bromelain, a natural anti-inflammatory? 
Now, you probably can’t eat enough to actually get therapeutic effects, but it’s just nice to know that something so yummy is also so good for you!

Cookie Follow-Up

Friday, September 9th, 2011

Skyping with my Sweetheart … he says he loved the cookies, but that I’ll need to remake them so that he can check again!

He’s hoping for more and wondering why it’s been a month since I’ve made him cookies. Looks like more cookies this weekend… hmm … must think of new experimental recipes … what’s in the pantry?

He’s requesting classic chocolate chip with walnut or pecan.

Classic chocolate chip pecan it is.


Later …

Only one problem … I forgot the pecans, but I did sneak some toffee bits in there.

From the smiles these cookies brought, I don’t think he missed the pecans too much.

Beautiful Night for a Ride!

Daylight hours are getting shorter waaay to quickly for my tastes – but tonight I was able to get a quick post-work ride in. My favorite fig tree is still bearing fruit, though the second crop isn’t as big and juicy as the first, but still yummy!


Cruisin’ on the vintage red Klein

Wednesday, September 7th, 2011

Cruisin’ on the vintage red Klein this weekend. As I was just taking off from a stop, a gaggle of young boys crossing the intersection called out, “THAT’S THE BEST BIKE IN THE WORLD!” Little did they know it’s WAY older than any one of them!
