    This week I will see if my 11 year mtb still works. Been years since I’ve been on a trail.  

    More than anything, check air pressures in the suspension.  Would not be fun to bottom out the front and get launched due to low pressure.

  2. Decided to try my hand at chicken parm.

    Pan friend, panko crusted thin chicken breasts, on the grill side burner to limit indoor mess. 


    Always better by sunset light.


    Baked with homemade tomato sauce with mozzarella and parmesan cheese.


    One cutlet was left cheese free for Lily who claims that she's becoming lactose intolerant. All agreed that it was excellent.

    How does that work?  You roast the ingredients first, then mix 'em?

    Broil to char for everything pictured and also the peppers, peel the peppers after charring, add that all to a crock pot and use an immersion blender to mix. Add a cup or two of chicken stock.


    I also pan fry cubed pork (salted and peppered and dredged in flour) and add that. 


    I then let the whole mess cook for at least six hours or so.

    The recipe says to remove the skin and suggests doing it in water or stock that gets strained and used in cooking. I was confused at first, but I think it's meant to be removed and tossed.

    There is definitely mention of reincorporation, I may have to try that out to see if you can get some additional flavor without unpleasant bitterness.

  4. You'd have to be very careful with that recipe as too much pepper skin will make them very bitter. I left the skins on once and the chili was nowhere near as good.  Would take quite a bit of "to taste" type manipulation to be good but very well might be worth it.  And pork enchiladas verde are one of my favorite things that I do not make myself.  I should change that. 

  5. Sorry for the lack of updates over the weekend, the wifi at the house could basically support one device at a time.  Short version, the ride was great.  Continue on for TLDR...


    The day started with overcast skies, temps in the mid 70s which was pretty ideal.  We met Kelly (left above) and Edie (KBF Executive Director) at the starting line for a quick pick after the main pack rolled out around 7:30.  We weren't particularly worried about riding with any other groups/folks.  The first 25 miles or so passed without much incident, one guy got a flat which was quickly changed with a little help from the ride support crew and then the five of us riding the 100 split off to take the longer way home.  Through the next 20 miles temps and the weather continued to be on our side.  As we passed through 50 miles the sun came out with a vengeance.  What had been simply a warm, very humid day turned into a hot and steamy one fast.  But sunscreen was applied and much fluid consumed (I think I drank between 8-10 22oz bottles on the day) and with the exception of my friend Jim who cramped and had to call in the sag wagon at 85 miles, we all survived in tolerable shape.  Much fun was had, much money was raised.  Our little 9 person team ended up raising a bit over $25k and the event topped the million dollar mark on the day of the ride.  I spent a significant amount of time on the front along with my friend Gus as we'd both logged considerably more training miles than the others.  All in all, I just can't say thank you to all of you that continue to support me and this event.  The foundation does some truly amazing work and changes lives every time that they do.

    In the parlance of the kids,


    I'm serious, not just the fact that you do this every year, but the fact that you keep up your physique throughout the year is very admirable.

    Thanks Peter.

    Now sitting at 95%, I donated personally today to make sure some of my contribution adds to the doubling effect.

    Moved to HD white tiles tonight. Much cheaper than slate and pretty damn nice when finished.  
    Need to build a jig to make sure I can center images. 

    Link to raw materials?  

    Also, jig = 1/8" plywood with a cutout of the shape with known coordinates of one corner.  Requires a little math, but generally works.

    After all of the good feedback on the Black Cat, I gave it a shot. Got the machine pretty well dialed for it. Tried really hard to like it…  Not sure how to describe what I don’t like about it, but I guess it’s just not for me. 

    It's not all that shocking to me.  I tend to not like super sweet coffees based on mental tasting notes I've taken throughout the years with various beans from OBR.
