Cheese Pancakes...

Why not!!!!

1/2 cup diced apple
1/2 cup diced pineapple

dash of salt
2tsp sugar
1 cup milk
2 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4-1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp fresh chopped tarragon or 1 tsp dried tarragon
1 1/2 cups grated gouda (I didn't have gouda and used swiss emmental and it tasted really good)

Mix dry ingredients.
Wisk eggs in separate bowl, add milk, vanilla and tarragon.
Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until smooth.
Add cheese and stir well.

Cross Contamination

Super cool event this past weekend called the Cross Contamination put on by local fixie rider Clay. What was it?? An urban cyclocross scavenger hunt of sorts. All we get is a map, with a few hints, and we have to race around finding check points and collecting chips. Got to see a lot of really neat places that I would never have known were there, and ended up going in about 47 circles getting so lost......but it was really fun and there ended up being about 30 people out!!!!

Stick + Spokes and Fender = Bad News

Found out the really hard way what the pavement tastes like on my way to work on Wednesday. Yes, endoing on the road is a little tricky but with the right combination of a stick magically jumping up, getting wrapped up in supports of front fender, then proceeding to get jammed between spokes of thus front wheel and fork, all without any sound of forewarning, you too can achieve the rather non-enjoyable feeling of sailing head long over the handle bars. Despite going from over 30 km/hr to 0 in a split second, I actually fared relatively well. Both elbows are extremely sore to the touch, still after 4 days of healing, but I didn't even break the skin. One really good hematoma on my left thigh...I'm thinking from my handlebar, bruise on my left hip....pavement for sure, and my whole upper body feels like it's been beaten by a 2X4.

Thanks to everyone who stopped to help pick me up and pull my fender outta my front wheel!!!
