Raced a lot of miles this weekend. Was plum wore out. Even my eyes were tired.

Monday, no riding.

Tuesday. Bad mood, unproductive at work, not even a 75F blue sky day could turn me around.

Got on the bike, still dead. Was scheduled for intervals but Creaky called NFW on that and went home.

As an aside, Creaky enjoys using the third person to refer to hisself.

Got home, decided "carbs, that's what he needs".

Made up a big ol mondo bowl of red beans and rice. Sure I used canned beans and microwave rice. Sue me. Lots of salsa and a bit of cheese just fer the rib-sticking factor.

That thing was at least 800 calories of starch-dense goodness.

Woke up this morning a new man. I'm now able to refer to myself in the first person. Legs feel good. Eyes feel relaxed and sharp. I am ready to hammer again.

That is all.


(this photo stolen from the internet represents a bowl about half the size of what I et)

not at all. that was the first RBR I ever had and it's still a favorite.

Coincidence? I think not.

I think you're onto something here.
There are no coincidences! Well, maybe a few are...

I spent Fat Tuesday eating red beans and rice with andouille sausage and drinking Dixie Amber Lager at Bon Temps Cafe in San Luis Obispo. Also had some fried alligator and cornbread.

Only if you're prone to cardiac problems.

But you'll die with a smile on your face.

Oh Gawd Creaky,

I love Red Beans and Rice. Honest to Gawd love them.

I have to either make them myself or wait until I'm down south though.

Not a dish you find often on menus in the Great White North.

Even the "pre-fab" stuff you can buy in the grocery store - not so much in the GWN.

At least now I know what to make for dinner.
