Once the weekend came we took a bike ride over to the downtown farmers market and picked up some fresh cherry tomatoes, and a spaghetti squash. Not to mention some awesome pickles pickled with peppers (yes I picked a peck). They didn’t have that much zing when we tried the smaller samples at the market, but when we got them home the zing really came out. Tonia was a bit taken aback by them.
Around mid-day we took our first road ride together. Tonia and I took off to try and ride to my office so I can start commuting to and from work. After a few turns down some very questionable neighborhoods and working through some construction we found our way. Round trip was around 15 miles. It’s not that far but neither Tonia nor I have ridden much lately so we were both a little spent. We were going to go on another ride Sunday but it never happened.
That night Tonia decided it was time to break through her fear of eating fish so she prepared an awesome meal of grilled Salmon with garlic and herb couscous and a salad of romaine, artichokes, hearts of palm, and red peppers. It was delicious with a bottle of Homewood wine and we enjoyed it out on the patio in some very moderate temps, I think they were in the high 70’s or low 80’s. At any rate Tonia ate and enjoyed the Salmon. No gagging!!
As there seems to always be something going on in our odd little downtown neighborhood there was a block party that we walked through and once again got to enjoy the oddities. Didn’t take many pictures other than this huge monster truck that was sitting in the street. It’s kind of dark but its pretty cool.
Sunday we didn’t do much but arrange some furniture. So there’s not much to report there. I’m going to try to ride to work this week so we’ll see how that goes.
