Last night Tara and Matt came over for dinner. I really wanted to cook something good for them. They have been going crazy in the last month with the arrival of the little one 'Trey' and they are great friends. After looking into my favorite cook book (out of 1000!!) I decided on the menu:
Fresh homemade sweet potatoes gnocchi, with fresh homemade ricotta cheese with homemade cherries tomatoes sauce! oh and fresh homemade strawberry frozen yogurt! I really love to cook and I always give a twist to any recipe to make it mine. I had a glass of white wine and enjoyed being in the kitchen all afternoon. Dinner was a success!
I woke up this morning hungry...like every morning. After a nice quiet time on the computer sipping coffee and eating my fruits I decided to make bagels! Yup ..bagels. 2 hours later Tim was testing them...success! The picture of the bagels is for Matt...believe me now?
till next time

Got back at 10pm from Cambridge NY last night from the Battenkill road race.
Got up at 5 this morning to go swimming....I finally started. Then got home at 9 all excited for the day. Marathon that we where suppose to go see. Then I wanted to go on the moto ...you know just a little trip with Tim for a nice lunch. Didn't go. Was suppose to rain. I was dreaming of a massage for my little legs that raced those Battenkill roads on Saturday and twice around the course backwards on Sunday watching the pro race...Didn't happen. Then started to get bored...there is days where I don't listen to myself and I just wait ..wait for something to happen and then I get disappointed....And everytime I tell myself DO NOT do this again...and I do.
So days like this one I called them boring , blaaaaaaaa, grey, sad...Can't you tell Im bored?
I miss my dad.

I just finish the race in Marblehead and ...I had a great time! I wanted to be aggressive in the 35+ and then try to do as many laps possible in the pro men...that was about 4! great training race all around. Thanks to Geoff Hamilton, the CCB crew , Diane and her daughter for making sure no one cut the course short!! and a big thanks to the masters and the pro men for being so great about having ladies racing with them.
Nice seeing the Mc Cormack brothers ...we where all teammates on saturn a long time ago.
And all the great people that I met this winter teaching indoor cycling at Joe and Marti Gym in Marblehead. But for me this week end was all about my parents, they drove down from quebec. I haven't seen them since last november because of the immigration process that Im in. My dad was having a hard time and I couldn't go up there. I was very relief to see him. He looks great.
Tim got 2nd by 1 inch.
next one : Battenkill with some dirt and fun!
Huge thanks to Andrew Frasca at October hand made bikes! My new bikes feel awesome!!
