I know, this is not a baking site. But! Ride to Eat, Eat to Ride. The only way to live! However, we can’t ride very far or fast (especially on the pedals) if we’re bogged down with a bunch of crap food. So I’ve finally perfected the double chocolate chip cookie. Thanks to HeatherVescent for the perfect starter recipe. Hers is great, but I needed it to be Free. Gluten Free. Sugar Free. And Dairy Free. I’ve been afraid to ditch the dairy, but finally crossed over completely. You could call these Coconut Chocolate Delights, there’s so much Coconut in them. And they are truly delightful. Trust me, I know chocolate And these are the best cookies I’ve ever tasted. All ingredients are organic and fair trade whenever possible. Especially the boiling water… Continue reading Freedom Cookies!
I’m a born-again 49ers fan. OK, so maybe I never was much of a football fan growing up, but even a goth like me knew we had the best football team in the country back in the 80’s. One of my classmates was trying to convince us that the 49ers are going to the playoffs this year. In his presentation he had an action shot of the most gorgeous arms I’ve ever seen. So I dug up some more pix of Vernon Davis and damn… SI needs to do a Swimsuit Issue for the ladies and put Vern here on the cover. and the centerfold.
Finished my paper on Democracy. Basically just talked about some articles I’d recently read, showing how we’ve kinda run full circle back to a form of tyranny not unlike the tyranny we escaped from 230 years ago. I was very happy to see that both Time and Harper’s magazines had articles asking the American public what I’ve been wondering for a few years now. Why don’t we just impeach the brat? And his trigger-happy sidekick, while we’re at it? Jeesh. How much more are people willing to put up with?
In other news, the sun is out so I get to ride to Santa Monica instead of taking the cage. Like most SoCal riders, I’m deathly allergic to rain, and convinced that my bike will melt if I take it out in the rain. I used to know how to ride in the rain, hell, I even used to race in the rain, but not anymore.
Survived a rare trip to Costco yesterday. While they didn’t have what I actually wanted, I did pick up a lifetime supply of cotton makeup pads and kiwis. Made Heather drive, even the shopping cart. We almost gave in to the temptation to look at people’s pix. It’s so tempting, they’re all there, and no one would know. When we were ready to, there were a bunch of people looking at pix, probably not their own, either. In any case, judging by how little I enjoy looking at Costco customers, I doubt I’d enjoy looking at their pictures.
Arrived home to see my bulk order of grain-sweetened organic chocolate chips had arrived. Because I went through the 10lb. order pretty fast, I decided to splurge and buy 25lbs. of pure chocolate heaven all at once. Should last me about a month…
