I had a great morning bike ride yesterday, breaking my one mile lap around the lake personal record by 4 seconds (2m 43s, average speed 22.09 MPH). I’m getting the feeling that riding my bike around the lake at a high rate of speed is annoying to some of the people on foot. There are also several semi-sharp turns on the track that slow me down – specially when people are walking around those turns. I can understand why people might be unsettled by someone speeding by them on a bike, so I’m going to stop racing around the lake. What I’m going to do instead is find a 1-mile straight section somewhere on the bike lanes around my house and start doing speed runs there. This will allow me to challenge myself to constantly improve my 1-mile time on a straight, consistent stretch of road.

Grilled Tomato and Basil Shrimp

Grilled Tomato and Basil Shrimp

Last night I made the Grilled Tomato and Basil shrimp recipe that I mentioned in yesterday’s blog. Wow! It was fantastic! This dish is healthy and very easy to make, but the flavors are amazing. Give this recipe a try and I think you’ll be very pleased. I modified the shown recipe slightly to suit my tastes, and that is mentioned in the notes. Here’s a picture:

I’ve been getting some very positive feedback from a lot of people about the new recipes I’ve been posting. Eating healthy doesn’t have to take a lot of time, and you definitely don’t have to sacrifice flavor. One thing that I’ve heard from a few different people is that they’ll find a recipe that they like, won’t have everything they need to make it and will just fall back to making the same old stuff. I’ve experienced the same thing. The answer is to have a well-stocked pantry of staple items. So what are those items? That’s going to be the focus of tomorrow’s blog. I’m going to take you on a guided tour of my pantry, and it’s going to be very in-depth. I hope that by seeing how keeping a few dozen low-cost staples around will allow you the freedom to get creative in your kitchen, and inspire you to start trying all kinds of new dishes.
