Work With What You’ve Got

Lots of random sauces, jams, and salsas – not a lot of much else.

  • 3 Carrots
  • 1/4 Eggplant

Time to get back to packing!

Rain, Rain Go Away

July 8, 2011

Not something you want to wake up to when you have a 35 mile bike ride planned. Bummer. It was pouring when my alarm went off at 5:30 and the forecast called for rain for the remainder of the day. Tomorrow looks better, so I postponed my bike ride until then and headed to the more ยป
