Got back in the saddle tonight for an hour on the trainer. Did some nice tempo work listening to Maximo Park's "A Certain Trigger" that I got from emusic.com yesterday. My legs felt real good, but throat is still a little sore, but that's about it, not as achey as I was, and no chills today.
Race recap, photos and results are up on cyclingnews.com for yet another perspective of the Mohican 100. I love reading all the reports from folks like Jeff, Andy, Dicky, the IF race reports and of course my own. Fun to see how it was one race but we all had different experiences over the 100 miles.
That's about it from my world of cycling. Now I'm gonna hit you with some Turkey Balled Pasta!
Bag of Spinach
1 Sliced Green Pepper
1 Sliced Red Pepper
1 Medium Onion Sliced
1 Piece of Whole Wheat Toast
1 Box Of Whole Wheat Spaghetti
1 Jar of Red Sauce
1 Can of Diced Tomatoes
3 - 4 cloves of garlic
Kosher Salt, Pepper, Red Pepper flakes
Extra Born Again Virgin Olive Oil
1 Egg White
1 lb. of Ground Turkey
1 Beer (of your choice, just nothing suck)
First crack open a beer...
Pre heat oven to 350*.
Then place piece of whole wheat toast in food processor, make yourself some bread crumbs and set aside.
Now place a big ass handful of spinach in the processor with a about 3 cloves of garlic. Chop fine.
Place spinach, garlic, 1/2 cup or so of parm cheese, bread crumbs, 1 egg white and raw turkey meat in a mixing bowl. Season with some salt and pepper and any other spices you dig in your meat.
Now start mixing through. (white glove hand tan is optional)
Roll your balls...
Place your balls on a lubricated cookie sheet or cake pan. Cover with foil and bake at 350* for about 25-30 min. depending on how big your balls are.
Now, put big pot O'Water on to boil for pasta, get yourself a stir fry pan and saute some sliced peppers, onions and minced garlic in some E.V.O.O.
When vegetables are at your desired tenderness, add a can of diced tomatoes (drained)...
And some Sauce (Chunky Gu is the latest in Endurance Racing Gels)....
About this time you balls should be done, so get 'em out of the oven, add to sauce and vegies, Add some whole wheat spaghetti to the sauce, then add some salt, pepper, crushed red pepper, parm cheese and/or other spices to your taste. Or you can scoop sauce & balls on some olive oil pasta as I did.
Makes enough for about 4 people or 1 Wifey and one Cyclist taking in mad amounts of carbs and calories.
You can't screw too much up. I "eyeball" my ingredient amounts to my tastes and needs. No need to be too exact. Add what you like, exact is for roadie bakers.
Man, I must be f*cking bored.
