A Thought For Today

Sunday, August 26th, 2012

“There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living.”

 ~  José N. Harris, MI VIDA

I hope you never fall from your bike, but if you do may you get back up
and back in the saddle again soon.

Strawberry & Frozen Greek Yogurt Tartlets

Monday, August 20th, 2012


Here’s an idea for an easy, light, and refreshing dessert. Pick up some pre-made filo tartlet shells. Scoop about a tablespoon of frozen fat free vanilla Greek yogurt, and top with a fresh berry of your choice.

Viola – dessert is served!

It is absolutely perfect weather for cycling this morning! I got in just a quick jaunt before I have to head off to work. I needed that … especially after last night’s dinner!

Homemade Meatballs ... now that's a spicy meatball!


These meatballs were made entirely from scratch – including grinding the meat. Super spicy, super good. I’m looking forward to trying a few of these on pizza later in the week. CyclingFoodie may have its first guest blogger with this recipe.

First Brussel Sprouts of the Season

Monday, August 13th, 2012

Brussel Sprouts from the Davis Farmers Market


Saute in a little extra virgin olive oil

... and a little bacon makes everything better!

Clean, trim, and halve the brussel sprouts. Saute some lean bacon in a heavy skillet over medium. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate to drain well. Wipe most of the excess bacon fat from the pan. Add a little olive oil to the pan and let it heat a moment. Add the sprouts and saute to the desired doneness. I don’t like to overcook them, I think that makes them bitter and funky. I usually add some balsamic vinegar, but didn’t last night. Salt and pepper to taste and enjoy!
