It was off to a promising start!
The weekend was very nice and I caught a couple of lazy rides. A little too lazy. So on Monday we stepped it up.
I like to go English when it's hot out. I don't know that it makes much difference really but I feel better about the lighter load. My stock saddle weighs a ton!
We really did some serious work. We do that every once in a long while.
Tuesday it rained so I went off on a Big Mac Road Trip.
And then...it rained. And rained. And rained. Freezing cold too. Did I mention the rain? It poured buckets! Well at least I had electricity.
I've never seen pollen in the river this time of year. This is a common sight in May but not in September.
The Farmer's Market is *the* place for seasonal ingredients and of course I love seasonal ingredients.
I think ratatouille is to Summer what beef stew is to Winter. And this is my favorite ratatouille recipe!
Made with field fresh produce this is just Summer on a plate. No that's not summer squash. It's one of those golden zucchinis. I like ratatouille as a main dish with some chianti or better yet, anything at all from the Languedoc region. I had this a few weeks ago with a Minervois and it was sensational.
And I made a discovery!
These people here at SoCo Creamery make the most awesome ice cream I swear.
