Addiction 2021.4

Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

Cool pic, Mr. Trainrider.

Probably one of those 3 cylinder 2 stroke Kawasakis. A friend had a Triumph Trident which was plenty fast. He showed me by pulling a wheelie down the alley one day. He came to the same realization as your English woman and sold that bike and bought a Moto Guzzi.
It's not that Harleys and Guzzis are slow, it's a different culture.

I mean, I like potatoes.... but the preparation of most good potatoes dishes involves loading them up with fats, and I just have no desire to do that very often. Last week, I made potatoes with Swedish meatballs one night and with Thanksgiving dinner another - I don't need to see potatoes on my plate for a couple more weeks.

You can just bake them and put a little salad dressing on them. Easy and nutritious.

Actually white potatoes are most nutritious only if you include the skin. I prefer sweet potatoes, much more nutritious.

Also, commercial salad dressings invariably contain unhealthy sugar.

I make sweet potatoes often, cut into sticks, oiled and seasoned with chili powder, and convection roasted to crispitude. Best with ketchup spiked with habanero hot sauce.

Depends on your definition of "loading them up".
  • A couple pounds of boiling potatoes, washed and quartered, roasted at 400 degrees after tossing in EVOO with freshly chopped garlic and rosemary, salt and pepper. Most of the oil stays on the baking sheet, but the cut surfaces of the potato get brown and crispy and the insides get nice and soft.
  • the same potatoes, but peeled and quartered and boiled till just cooked through but not yet falling apart. Add 2 Tbsp of butter, salt, pepper, and freshly chopped parsley. That's 1 Tbsp butter per pound of potatoes.

Like I said, "most." Roasting is probably the least fatty, but how frequently do you want to do that?

How frequently do I want to DO that? Or how frequently do I want to EAT that?

But, you know, you rode 187 miles last week and you're worried about a little fat?

It's not the calories so much as the heaviness.

We simply spray a little olive oil on a sheet, cut the potatoes into cubes or fries, sprinkle with rosemary, some pepper, and very little salt, and then roast until soft. That or bake a potato. Neither are bad unless you load up the baked potato.

they usually have about 20 self checkout registers. They are extraordinarily hard to miss. At least at the several that are near me. They typically outnumber the staffed registers.
