During my time of freedom Wednesday has become one of the most boring days of my week.
No RAGBRAI This Year
Honestly, given my schedule and anticipated lack of vacation time the possibility of riding RAGBRAI again this year was very slim. Last weekend the organizers of RAGBRAI announced this year’s course; it will take the northern route this year. While a northern route means flatter riding. with the exception of 3000′ of incline on the final day, it makes for a much longer journey to get there and back for the southern states.
The organizers say that this will be the third shortest, as well as the third flattest RAGBRAI in their history.
One More Hurdle…
More good news received yesterday. It appears that I will either get an in-person interview this week, or have to wait for a couple of weeks due to scheduling conflicts. My fingers are crossed, or as I would say in German “I’m pressing my thumbs”.
I Need To Take Advantage Of Today’s Weather
According to the experts today should be sunny with a high of nearly 70°F. In January.
Though I only have one more (double-length) episode of The Amazing Race Season 6 (I miscalculated yesterday) I need to take advantage of this weather and get outside for exercise today.
On Tonight’s Menu
At 10:00 I will be loading up the crockpot again. Tonight I will be following (as closely as the ingredients on hand will allow) this recipe for Slow Cooker Cheesy Buffalo Chicken Pasta. My stash of hot sauces doesn’t currently have a vinegar-based buffalo sauce, so I will substitute some other type of hot sauce. My pantry also doesn’t contain any celery salt, so I’m going to try and make the recipe without it.
I think that I will attempt to take a photo of my creation to see how closely it matches the one on the recipe’s website.
Have a great day friends!
